7 July a special date

7-7-97 was a special day.
At 9:07 Annewiek and I were married by law.
At 19:07 Annewiek and I were married for the church.
The second was not planned at that time but we had to travel from Marknesse to Emmeloord and decided to do that with a horse and carriage. (Something I really wanted to do at my wedding), and don’t ask but we got some delay 🙂


So it’s been 15 years now that Annewiek and I have been married. We have a beautiful son Brian (now 13) and we’re still going strong. Annewiek is always with me during the travels abroad (we tried once without each other but that didn’t go so well to say the least), also with the workshops on location she is there to assist me. She did most of the video work in the last instructional DVDs and of course she is always there to arrange things when I’m to busy.


Some marriages are between husband and wife, some marriages are between soul mates… I think we fall under the latter.
Up to another 15 years (and more).



I always update my blog at 7:00AM so that’s also a coincidence, however for today I changed it to 7:07AM.
