Today is our twelfth wedding anniversary. I kept trying to think of a clever euphemism, synonym or idiom about a dozen, but it eludes me.
Abby and I were on our new front deck recently, just after sunset, holding each other close in the cool air.
“Can you believe it’s been 12 years?” I asked, then added, “let’s go for 12 more!”
“No,” she answered. “Forever.”
