Time in a bottle of wine (congedo)

Thank you to everyone for all the kind wishes and thoughts, comments and messages. They mean so much to both of us. That’s us, above, right before we got our marriage license yesterday. I wish I could capture the way I feel right now in a bottle… like wine… the greatest vintage of my lifetime… It’s an amazing, wonderful feeling… Thank you to everyone who’s been following our adventure through the blog and beyond…

The weather in La Jolla has been great. Tracie B took this photo of the sunset with her Blackberry (standing in front of the building where mama Judy lives) as I went to pick up pizza for the 24 Texans who arrived yesterday for the festivities (and more are on their way)! We paired with Lini Lambrusco Rosé (Sorbara), btw, for the record.

In Italian prosody, the last stanza of canzone is called the congedo, the envoy, the goodbye…

I’ll be taking a break from blogging for a while. So, we’ll see you in a week or so. But I just wanted to thank everyone, one more time, for sharing in this adventure and all the kind thoughts and wishes. They mean so much to both of us.

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with
