Last weekend I went to the Brookside St. Paddy's Day Parade. Allie was in it. She rode in a convertable with our friend Deb, who is trying to get a dog park opened in her neighborhood.
Midway through the parade, I was standing at 63rd and Brookside when I saw them go by. Allie was sitting up on the car, smiling and waving to the crowd. And I just thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world. And I thought, out of all of these people, and all the other people on earth, she's chosen me to be her husband.
Been having that feeling a lot lately. I don't know if it's a newlywed thing, but Allie looks more beautiful to me now than she ever has.
