The Wedding of Keith McDermott and Zhengbin Xu

20131209-091538.jpg

This post is quite delayed! On October 5, 2013, a very amazing and happy event happened. I married the man of my life, Zhengbin Xu! We traveled to Davenport, Iowa and were joined by Mom, Dad, Corey, Danielle, Zach, Aaron, and Nathan. We were married in a short ceremony right on the bank of the Mississippi River by Magistrate Carrie Coyle. Afterward, we all had a nice lunch and had photos taken by Danielle at several beautiful locations around Davenport.

Gray vs. Grey

In chatting with Mom today, I suddenly noticed that we both were using the spelling “grey” instead of the more-traditional spelling “gray” in America.  A quick google search found the following article which goes into more detail regarding the usages of both spellings around the world.  It’s a quick read and interesting to see that although both are proper, their usages do vary based on where you are.

Light Reading

Today I was at Mom and Dad’s house and this evening Zach laid next to me and I read him part of a book I just received from work.  I’m not so sure Zach understood the words and the only picture was on the cover, but he sat through one paragraph so I’m proud of him!

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

Today marks the 29th wedding anniversary for my Mom and Dad.  Thankfully, it’s really easy to remember because I just need to add one year to my current age!  :-p

Here’s to many many many more anniversaries ahead!
