Six years minus two days ago...


...I married my gorgeous husband. I am the luckiest woman in the world.

About a month ago, Andy posted something on facebook about needing a flash drive, her friends suggested an external hard drive (or maybe she recommended that to someone else; can't remember.) Anyway, it was a reminder to me that backing up files is a project that shouldn't be put off. I went out to Walmart and bought the smallest hard drive I could find. Cory promptly backed up all our files on the PC downstairs. We primarily use the laptops now, but until about six months ago, we exclusively used the downstairs computer.

Last week, I needed to print something on my printer connected to the old computer, so I went to pull the file up.

GONE.

Everything was gone, from the entire computer. All of our pictures, my work documents, and computer programs. I remember my friend Nancy called right as I realized that we had backed it all up. When she asked what I was doing I said, "Thanking Jesus!"

And now, as I browse through all those saved memories, I am reminded of my wedding day and the week leading up to it. I knew then that this marriage was going to be this good.
I love you, Cory. Thank you for loving me (and for backing up those files).

Congratulations on your victories! Anniversary and memory!

I so need to do some back up, but I don't really know how, or have much understanding. Better get to it!

Jenny - if you buy an external hard drive, it'll come with instructions. It's very simple. And SO important. I'd be devastated if I lost my pictures. :(

congrats, congrats, congrats!

how lucky that you backed the files up. I consider it often, but then laziness hits. Perhaps someday .. although come to think of it, I think my .mac account gives me file space on a server somewhere that I can actually back up to .. hmmmm ..

TOTALLY! Except we're going north instead of south because we're not rich like you. ;)
