The love story...
We were hired at a restaurant in Denver about the same time, and I was only 19. I'll never forget the scene, seeing her for the first time across the room and having one of those instantaneously-in-love kind of moments. She was the first person I was ever driven to actively pursue, because I felt I just had to know her! Despite the fact, I wasn't taken seriously because I wasn't even old enough to take her for drinks at the time. A year and several attempts to hang out later, she agreed to get a cup of tea with me after work. Two years after that, I was proposing to her in the drizzling rain, at the mystical Audubon sanctuary in Portland. Four years later, we are twin flames in the fullest expression, and I'm just fortunate she came around!
