This Day in History August 18, 2009

Posted by jorkat in Seoul.
Today marks a very special day in history.
On this day in the year 1227, Mongol conquerer Genghis Khan died in China.

Robert Redford was also born on this day in 1937.
But most importantly, it’s the day that I asked Katie for her hand in marriage in Central Park, New York (2006) and married her the following year in Muskoka (2007).
How about another list?
Here are my Top 10 favourite things about being married to Katie.
10 ) She makes me food.
9 ) She enjoys watching most sports (with the exception of football which I’m
working on with Tom Brady‘s help)
8 ) She likes almost all the same TV shows as me (with the exception of PTI which she doesn’t like, and the Bachelor(ette) which she likes a little too much)
7 ) She laughs at my jokes. Sometimes.
6 ) She loves me even if I haven’t showered in a while.
5 ) She manages my obsessive compulsive disorder. I suppose it’s better than being a complete slob but I like having things organized almost to a fault and sometimes have a habit of moving her stuff around too. Even though 99% of the time, I’m moving it to the right spot.
4 ) She lets me watch her in the shower. She doesn’t always know about this one, but it makes me very happy.
3 ) She’s a Leafs fan.
2 ) She’s a beautiful, kind and compassionate woman who’s going to make an
excellent mother to our children.
1 ) She doesn’t get upset when her husband buys her fake flowers on their anniversary by accident. Mostly because he walked for over an hour in scorching heat to find this particular type of flower but didn’t inspect them close enough when he finally found them.
Katie, I couldn’t be happier with the decision we made as individuals to spend our lives together, and the decision we made as a couple to move to Asia and travel the world. We couldn’t have picked a better time in our lives to do this and I’m the luckiest guy in the world to have you by my side.
Happy Anniversay Katie. I love you more than anything. I hope the next two years are just as exciting and eventful as the first two years have been. ‘Cause after that, I’m really going to let myself go…

Jordan!! I never thought I’d say this but you made me cry – and NOT because I’m a) laughing so hard I can’t breathe, or b) because you made fun of me.

Happy anni, guys. We love you too! (Katie a bit more.)

Jordan I don’t think that bonerack of a frame could support you putting another 5 pounds on it.

Congratulations Katie on marrying the skinniest man south of the DMZ. Maybe you could inject some HGH into that cooking Jordan enjoys so much.

Fake Flowers???????

Mate, even such a sucky list isn’t going to drag you out of that hole.

Katie, milk it for all it’s worth.

Anyway enjoy

Love Auntie Kelly
