Kevin Patrick Law - May 2021


It’s hard to believe it has already been eight years since Tracy and I said “I do” in The Catholic Center at UGA. It was May 25, 2013. The day was sunny, but my new wife was even more beautiful than the weather outside! After we said our vows, we headed to The Foundry in Athens to celebrate with our friends and family. That night was the start of an amazing life together. It sounds cheesy, but since then, things have only gotten better each year. Tracy and I met for the first time through my law school roommate at Mercer University. She was studying accounting, and although we got along, we remained tangential acquaintances throughout my time in law school. But that all changed when I graduated and started working at a local insurance defense firm. My old roommate reintroduced us — this time in a more romantic way. He set us up on a date at Fadó Irish Pub in Midtown.

yet! Tracy arrived right on time (which I truly appreciated as I’m a stickler for punctuality), and we hit it off right away. In fact, the night went so well that I never went on another date with anyone else! Funnily enough, the soon-to-be Patricks had their first date in an Irish pub. Today, Tracy works as an accountant, and I like to say it’s because she has more “cents” than I do. She’s also a very patient, kind mom to our two kids, 5-year-old Michael and 2-year-old Catherine. And I couldn’t ask for a more supportive wife. When I started my firm, it was truly a leap of faith. I didn’t have any cases or clients, but Tracy was there for me. I’ll never forget the day when she told me, “If that’s your dream, I’ll support you unconditionally.” Those words meant a lot. Tracy is so pure of heart that sometimes I think she’s more than I deserve!

would love to go back to The Foundry in Athens where we had our rehearsal dinner and reception. It would be nice to get away for a while and spend a few days strolling down memory lane. Since our anniversary falls on Memorial Day weekend (my favorite holiday), the weather will probably be perfect. I’m looking forward to many more years together!

Looking back, my roommate must have seen a spark we didn't know was there

We haven’t quite decided how to celebrate our eighth anniversary, but I

How to Live to 99

Betty White’s Secrets of Longevity

Beloved “Golden Girls” actress Betty White is still enjoying her golden years. The famed actress celebrated her 99th birthday this January. While she told People magazine that she’s “blessed with good health, so turning 99 is no different than turning 98,” she also had a few tips for folks looking to make it to their centennial birthday. KEEP LAUGHING “Don’t take yourself too seriously,” White says. “You can lie to others — not that I would — but you cannot lie to yourself.” White has undoubtedly provided many laughs to viewers over the years, but she’s not just playing it up for the camera. Laughter is part of what keeps her young. BE OPTIMISTIC White says a good sense of humor also helps her keep a good attitude and look for the positive rather than “dwelling on the downside.” Avoiding negativity also gives her energy. “It takes up too much energy being negative,” she told People magazine. STAY BUSY With nearly eight decades of acting under her belt, six Emmys on her shelf, and over 120 screen credits to her name, White is no stranger to hard work. As she told

Parade in 2018, “I just love to work, so I’ll keep working until they stop asking.” EXERCISE YOUR MIND In addition to her busy work schedule, what keeps Betty White sharp? Crossword puzzles! She told Katie Couric in an interview, “I’m addicted. An admitted addict. I just can’t put ’em down.”

FIND A CAUSE White is a lifelong animal lover. She calls her golden retriever, Pontiac, “the star of the house.” While pet ownership itself comes with proven health benefits, White has channeled her love for animals in bigger causes. She’s been a trustee and board member of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association for over 40 years and has done work to help protect endangered species in the wild. Funds raised from White’s official fan club, Bet’s Pets, all go to support animal charities.

EMBRACE YOUR VICES White told Parade she loves vodka and hot dogs “probably in that order,” which just goes to show that you don’t have to forgo your treats to live to 99.
