It was sunny, not too cold. We went alone. A twenty minute drive out in the country. We were quiet, contemplative. We held hands and just drove. It was a nice house on a hill, not too large, but with a giant fireplace and floor to ceiling windows. She was nice. Offered to take our picture. She used his middle name, and spelled my name wrong, but it was ok. It was still us. Holding hands, speaking those timeless words of devotion. We didn't need witnesses. We didn't need flowers. We didn't need a tux or a dress. We just needed each other. And five years later, that's all we still need. Happy Anniversary love.
