Why I love Maryam

Maryam and Robert

Thanks to Thomas Hawk for making that image last week in Seattle.

Tomorrow is our fourth wedding anniversary.

How do you write a love note for someone as cool, as important, as interesting, as literate, as cuddly, as funny, as smart, as cute, as Maryam?

I can’t.

But she means the world to me. I don’t always demonstrate that. In fact, usually I’m a self-absorbed egotistical ahole with Maryam. It’s easy to take a giver for granted. And she gives and gives and I take and take.

Anyway, my life would be 1/10th 1/1000th as interesting without her.

She is, simply, the best. And that’s why I love her.

  1. You better love her – she lets you get away with the butter knife scratch at the wine estate. Congrats, grow old. Best, Tim R.

  5. Congrats on the anniversary Robert and Maryam. Maryam was so warm and kind the one time I talked to her so you’re a lucky man Robert.

  7. Wishing you both a happy 4th anniversary. Ahhh…to remember back 27 years ago to that time in my life. You guys are still newlyweds. You both seem to be truly in love, which even though only 4 years of wedded bliss, in this day and age with over 50% of marriages ending in divorce and many of those in the 1st couple years, you are both blessed. Robert, women seem to need a bit more reinforcement than men do, so try to keep those thoughts shared with M as often as you can. I wish I had followed the same advise over the last couple decades myself.

  9. I’ve often wondered if she gets pissed at the amount of time you spend in the blogosphere. Love the picture…you guys are such interesting, likeable, real people. Happy anniversary! :-)

  11. I typed some more stuff but I think doing a heart emoticon disappeared.

    Just wanted to say she looks so happy getting kissed by you. [3

  12. “I’m a self-absorbed egotistical ahole with Maryam.”

    Yup, saw that for myself. But I “hear” you have other redeeming qualities. ['nuff written]

    Ya’ll, spend 48 hours with the Scobles and see Maryam smile all the time and Robert’s puppy-dog eyes (yes, they are puppy-dog eyes!) follow her around the house.

  16. This is exactly why you have such a loyal following- because you do bring your personal life into the blog at times. Even though I’ve now met you- this helps readers that haven’t feel like they have.

    Congrats!!! SUPER picture.

  18. Hey Scoble, it was awesome spending time with you again up in Seattle. Talking with Maryam, I can definitely say that it was a pleasure sharing the evening with the both of you.

    Cheers,

  20. Congratulations Robert and Maryam. And thanks for sharing this with us; the world sure needs more people like yourselves, with that kind of passion, love and joy of living. And Robert, you make my wife cry with happiness with this post. Priceless! God bless you both always!

  22. Wow Robert, I’m honored that you’d use one of my photos of you and Maryam to celebrate your anniversary with her online.

    I’ve enjoyed getting to know Maryam better through you and think you two make the best couple. Shooting couples in love is one of my favorite things to do.

    It was so evident the night when I took this photo how much you and here were perfect for each other.

    Congrats on your anniversary today and to many good years for the two of you ahead!
