Celebrated 17 Year Anniversary!
Whew! Long and exciting weekend. Friday started out with Google banning my ads. Whatever. Hopped in my plane to practice takeoffs and landings. For the first time, winds did a 180 shift while on final approach. Good learning experience. Planes don’t fly well with a tailwind when gear is down and power is at idle…Came home to wrap Lea-Ann’s anniversary gift (Actually, just put it in a nice gift bag, much easier.).
Saturday marked 17 years!
We met in college while working out. At the time I had been dating someone for almost 5 years! I knew instantly that I was going to have to break that off…rough. (I didn’t even know her name, yet!)
And ever since, we’ve been together.
There isn’t much we haven’t experienced. Road trips to Mexico in college. Working arduous hours through graduate school – she cut hair during the day and worked at Chili’s as a waitress at night. I lived in the lab and taught O-chem.
We partied like rock stars on the weekends – sometimes I competed in a random grappling tournament or guided a raft trip down the Grand Canyon – and even made Vegas a couple times to dance our asses off (I’m a way better dancer).
Eventually we moved to Denver…Lily was born. That was 14 years ago.
And ever since, we’ve been focused on one thing: Raising a vibrantly healthy family.
From that, The People’s Chemist was born.
My Big Pharma career came to a screeching halt.
You can’t be on drugs and healthy at the same time.
So, for 14 years, we’ve been helping people get off prescription drugs so they could live a healthier, more active life. Together, we’ve ignored trends, hype, and even so-called laws that imply certain health-care regimens like vaccines are required. Chemistry, with its brutal honesty, has been our only guide. (In and out of the bedroom, LOL.)
So for our 17th year anniversary, we shared a ridiculously expensive bottle of wine – at least for someone living the lifestyle of the not-so-rich-or-famous. Had an amazing meal. And made it back home to care for kids and babies who were hit with fevers, snot bubbles and earaches.
Great. Not the all-nighter of our early days….
Skyler, by far, is the cry baby in the family. All eyez on Skyler…or else…Aubrey and Lily are the rocks, for sure. Blair’s learning from both as he gets older:)
It could be said that all four of our kids – as well as our healthy marriage – are all products of my book, Over-The-Counter Natural Cures Expanded.
LOL…so too was her gift. Profits from my book don’t go to building schools in Butt-F#ck-Egypt or paying for PR to successorize myself on social media…
Profits this weekend went to “the” watch with too many diamonds. Perfect for the ultra-hottie who has endured being married to a “pit bull on meth” for 17 years.
