Tuesday's Tribute-She said Yes.

It's my pleasure to introduce Jay, my first-ever-in-the-history-of-my-blog, male feature. Thank you so much for your willingness to give me a love story when I asked for it. Happy Anniversary!


Eight years ago today you said you would.



Despite a terrible year prior, a selfish wedding party, and a caterer who didn't seem to own any knives...



you looked me in my deeply hung-over eyes,
and told me that I would be the only one.

And you will forever be mine.



In great times, and in the others, here we remain.



I hope I never need to say it, but I always will.

I love you.



Tuesday's Tribute
Yet Another Jay and Deb Production.


I'm Jay from HalftimeLessons.com, co-home of Tuesday's Tribute...I only started blogging last fall, and HalftimeLessons is only what it is due to my mediocre writing and some phenomenal friends like Angie. As you can tell from above, I married extremely well, and have two incredible children, so don't fall in love with me. I'm taken, and she is more than I can handle. By the time you read this, I will be bald, having shaved my head for St. Baldrick's children's cancer research this past Saturday...I hope you read about it, and find the beauty in this cause that I have. My greatest thanks to Angie for letting me guest post on Seven Clown Circus, one of my absolute favorite blogs...I'm one of your greatest fans, Red!

Beautiful post, Jay! When you originally pledged to shave your head, I mentioned it in my own Tuesday Tribute to my dad who died of cancer, and my other dad who raised me. Someone thought I was shaving MY head. So because of that, I feel a little kinship to you. Way to go!
