The number thirteen is often thought to be unlucky, a bad omen, a number that most people frown upon. Hotels skip the 13th floor. Airplanes don't have a 13th row.
For us though, 13 has become a number for good things. Truman's birthday is December 13th. Amber's birthday is April 13th. Our wedding anniversary is May 13th.
And we found out a few days ago that we will be closing on our new home, our first home together, on November 13th. (Also our 6 month wedding anniversary!) Our closing was originally set for November 15th. Then we received a call requesting to change it to the 13th. How very appropriate!
And so, the 13th it is, and our love affair with the number 13, our lucky number it seems, continues....
