Great, kids! Now don't get cocky.

A.W. said...

i think like five years is when you think, "yeah, we can make this work."

Btw, i don't think i saw a pic of him before. you two are a cute couple.

So let me gently suggest... walk away from the computer, and spend the day together. ignore us. we will fling crap at each other like monkeys without your help.

Trooper York said...

Congratulations. And many more.

Calypso Facto said...

Happy Anniversary!

Way to Go! Here's to 40 or 50 more!

Christopher said...

One year? Pfui. Nothing. Wait until that dreaded "Seven Year Itch," then see. . .

(seriously, however, many congratulations and a wish for many happy years).

Congratulations, I hope you're both very happy! I enjoy reading this blog every day, even if I don't comment that often anymore.

MadisonMan said...

I wonder where Millie is today. Is she running up the mountain again?

Pastafarian said...

Congratulations. The first year is the hardest. (Well, except for the last year. But I don't think you have to worry about that for a very long time.)

As my whimsy leads me.. said...

Congratulations, and best wishes for many, many more happy years. You two are sweet together.

Did you ever hear from the lady jogger who was your witness/ photographer?

congratulations -- great picture!! this makes me happy.

rdkraus said...

Cool.

And, a pox on all the naysayers.

Trooper York said...

Why does Meade look like he just farted?

Pastafarian said...

A.W. said: "So let me gently suggest... walk away from the computer, and spend the day together. ignore us."

To hell with that noise.

Here's an alternative suggestion: Spend the day together, here on the blog, as you did before you met in person. Meade really should comment more -- he was one of my favorites.

Joe said...

Congratulations! May you two have many wonderful years together.

craig said...

Huzzah!

Who took this picture? Meade with arm extended?

Scott M said...

Congrats! How many kids were you guys planning on having now that the honeymoon is over?

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

Congrats and best wishes!

DADvocate said...

Congrats!

former law student said...

Yay!

But I'm not surprised. Fully matured people who have lived for years on their own pretty much go into marriage with their eyes wide open.

Bob_R said...

and many more to come...

Bob said...

Congratulations, Meade and Althouse!

aronamos said...

I hope you didn't try to eat the year-old cake. I think that "tradition" was made up by gastroenterologists.

lewsar said...

congrats!

Scott said...

It has been a rotten morning, but your post put a smile on my face...

Mazel Tov!

On the receiving end of the overflow, I celebrate a full first year, and wish you more years of abundance, goodness and life shared together.

Happy Anniversary...

Ann has survived;

that thing he makes her do with a ball,

beer,

Cross country skiing

kayaking

canoeing-

cigars-and sunburn.

Meade has survived Madison.

madawaskan said...

As you can see-Meade has great coping skills.

Tidy Righty said...

Congratulations! May Christ always be with you!

The Crack Emcee said...

Get a room, you two!

Kev said...

(the other kev)

Let me add my congratulations. You two have beaten my personal best by four months, so you must be doing something right.

edutcher said...

Many congrats to both of you.

And many more.

Deirdre Mundy said...

Congratulations-- I was just thinking the other day that your life seems so much more FUN since you married Mead.... canoeing, hiking, frisbee, nice breakfasts....

Honestly, living is just more... lively... when you don't have to do it alone!

Have many more wonderful, fun years together! :)

Eww! Mushy stuff!

May you both live longer than Mitch Miller did, together!

Palladian said...

I think you should call it your 3.1556926 × 10¹⁶ nanoseconds anniversary!

Fred Drinkwater said...

Cheers and fireworks!

But I'm still gloating that my sweetie and I are 24 years ahead of you...Good luck catching up!

Fred4Pres said...

Congratulations. Ours (my wife and my) aniversary was yesterday.

Golden West said...

Delighted for you - wishing you many happy return of the day.

Ann Althouse said...

Thanks for all the good wishes.

The picture was taken about a month ago at the botanic gardens here in Madison. A woman asked me to take a picture of her and her husband with her camera. I did, and then she wanted to take a picture of me and Meade with my camera. So I said yes, and kissed Meade for the picture. Kissed him twice for 2 pictures actually. Then she wanted me to do another picture of her and her husband, so she could get a kissy pic. They were much more romantic the second time -- and it was especially nice because they were rather old and the man was in a wheelchair. It made me see how much sexual love there really is out there in people that you might imagine have grown beyond that stage. I like to think that Meade and I are spreading the love -- spilling the love, we like to say. I believe in public shows of affection. I think it helps people. I really believe that.

Methadras said...

Very nice. Congratulations.

You are. Your story has brought a great deal of joy to everyone here. And showing affection in public sets a great example.

The Elder said...

"We made it!"

I always encourage couples to use the present tense when describing their marriage rather than the past tense. Or better still, how about: "We are making it!"?

And I'm happy to know that you are!

AC245 said...

Happy Anniversary, Meade and Althouse.

"1 year!"

... and counting!

So happy that you're happy!

BJM said...

Congrats! You certainly made my day...the Spousal Unit and I have had one of those grumpy, out of phase days and I was nursing a disagreeable mood until I clicked on your bookmark.


Think I'll go kiss him right now!

HT said...

Now how do we know this isn't all an Internet hoax?

Sally said...

i love, love, love the story of althouse and meade. there is nothing more alluring than 2 people who connect intellectually and then...all the other levels.

most sincere congrats.

PatCA said...

Congratulations, and many more.

Great image of a couple--Very Happy Anniversary!!!

john said...

Did you know there is an "Althouse and Meade" biological and environmental services company in CA? That's what you find when you google today. Not at all like this time last year when you were topping the blogosphere charts.

Congratulations to both of you. I wish you the most happiness possible, and a long life together.

(And if I can be so bold to speak for some bashful "ah shucks" types, I am sure AL, Garage, and Jeremy wish you both the best too.)

Pogo said...

God bless you both.

Salamandyr said...

Coming in kind of latish (been at another wedding). Congrats! Have many more!

JAL said...

Missed this (not at the same party as Salamandyr though)

Congrats, blessings, and may you have many more happy years!

JAL said...

And thanks for including us. All.

(And look ... this made 100.)

Beldar said...

Genuinely inspirational for others and, I hope, for the two of you as well. Guts seem to have indeed led to glory. Congratulations to you both, and keep marking occasions for noting your success, big and small, obvious and subtle.

Henry said...

Well I'm totally late to the party.

Congratulations!
