I just got even luckier.

On Tuesday, the 88th* day of the year, my best friend and love and the prettiest and most brilliant woman in the world, Jennifer James — became my wife.

When I proposed, JJ said she wanted to get married on some random Tuesday in the spring and to take the subway to City Hall and have a sundae. So we did.

Jack, my best man, was the only non-stranger and non-clerk in attendance. Then we went to our favorite restaurant, had lunch, and got drunk with thirty of our favorite people. What a perfect, perfect day.

In case you missed it, here’re some pages from the wedding album:

*Well, 89th actually, ’cause its a leap year. But it’ll make it easier to remember this unforgettable day.

  23. Danny, We’ve never met, or even spoken; maybe we will one day. But you changed my world through your books and Sketchbook Skool, found me my spiritual home and my peeps, and you feel like family. So I shed a few happy tears looking at your wedding day photos ( as family do), and wish you and Jenny a long life brimming with happiness and fun and joy (and art of course) (and dogs) (and sundaes!). xxxx

  27. Much deserved happiness to you both – My husband and I had a similar low-key wedding many years ago in Washington, DC at the courthouse. So I feel a kinship with your new bride’s sense of things. Cheers!
