Our great big 15 year vow renewal
You may have noticed that I'm on vacation these last few weeks. It's the first vacation of any length I've had in a while. In fact, I do have trouble disconnecting sometimes.
I've mentioned before that my wife and I have gotten married a few times. As my wife is a Zimbabwean there was the matter of lobola and a judge wedding, a white wedding, a wedding in Zim, and on and on. We like weddings.
My friend said that my wife and I are the "most gettingmarriedest people" she knows. I think everyone should get married at least a few times, and even better if it's to the same person over and over. ;)
This vacation was our 15 year anniversary so we decided to get married again! We organized a 15 year vow renewal and invited a ton of people. Folks came from South Africa, Haiti, New York, LA, Washington, and all points in between. We had a blast, we ate, we danced, we talked for hours. We put together a retrospective photoshow and a Spotify Playlist (some songs aren't available or are local MP3s) that is representative of our diverse tastes and the last decade and a half.
I'd also encourage you to check out the two episodes of The Hanselminutes Podcast where my wife joined me.
- Geek Relationship Tips with Scott's Wife Mo (Episode 216)
- More Relationship Hacks with Mo (Episode 314)
And yes, I know the book http://www.relationshiphacks.com is insanely late. It's paused, but it's in my mind. We have 6 chapters and have shopped it around and I just need to take another vacation and get the remaining chapters out of my head. Sorry.

Since you commented, maybe its time to a new Podcasd episode, I simply loved the ones with your wife, she's way smarter than you and this is hard to be!
Congratulations again and all best for you and your family!
I support frequent vow renewal. Not necessarily for romantic reasons mind you, just to confirm my wife hasn't changed her mind. A "marital unit test" if you will. I also support continuous integration which may explain why I'm dealing with 7 kids...
Great Merge. Hope it Synced your last 15 year of commits.
