Today, my wife Annie and I celebrate 9 years of wedded bliss. Okay, so it hasn’t been all bliss, but if I had it to do over, I wouldn’t change a thing. And hey, that’s more than a lot of people can say these days (my wife included, I think).

As the saying goes, opposites attract. That’s certainly true in a lot of areas for us. One of those areas is the internet and social media. I’m heavily involved in both while my wife may occasionally send a friend an e-mail. She could certainly do more in the space, she just chooses not to.
Still, sometimes I find myself wishing she’d stumbled upon my latest witty comment or random musing on her own instead of having to ask her to pause the DVR long enough so that I can read them to her out loud. Sort of loses a bit of its magic that way, you know?
In comes the Social Annie-versary Experiment, an idea I came up with just yesterday (far be it from me to avoid last minute anniversary ideas now).
Watch the video for the whole scoop. And let me know your thoughts regarding social media and the experiment itself. Is she better off staying away from Facebook and Twitter, et al?
You can help by commenting and/or spreading the word on Facebook and Twitter – use the hashtag #nothings – when you tweet/update ‘sweet nothings’ to your significant other. I’ll peruse them throughout the day and may use my favorites on my honey (feel free to do the same). Maybe before the day is over, you and I will have a crowd-sourced list of great ‘sweet nothings’ we can save for just the right moment.
Oh, and I may as well kick off the sweet nothings right here:
Honey, I love you more and more every day I’m alive.
