Friday, June 13th, 1997

Here we are – bride and groom – 14 years ago today, moments after having been united in marriage by Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson in front of our families in the Supreme Court Chamber inside the Capitol. Not too long after this shot was taken, we were a few blocks away with hundreds of friends and family members, partying at the old Starlight Room of the Civic Center.

It was the luckiest Friday the 13th of my life.

It’s been an interesting and often-times exciting 14 years. The beautiful lady in the picture above is still my best friend; we’ve been on some fabulous journeys together; and we’re looking forward to what our lives together will bring in the coming years.

We’ve scaled plenty of obstacles together, and have no doubt life will put a few more in our path in the coming years. But we’re ready for it.

Yes, I’d do it all over again – no hesitation.

Thanks for being my best friend and partner, Toni. I love you.


  1. Just like REALLY married up, fella.

  2. Congrats Tim - a touching post for a cranky, irritable and curmudgeonly fellow.

  3. Congratulations from another member of the married-up fraternity. We never forget what we got, and we hope that they never think too hard about what they got.
