Bill and i met back in high school. Our first encounter was not so pleasant, but we met again and realized how much we shared in common, and have not gone a day since without the love and support of one another…that was in April of 1996. In 1998, i moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington. I cried a lot and turns out Bill couldn’t live without me, so he soon made the move to Seattle too. Over the next decade we met great friends, had tons of grand adventures and deepened our love and respect for one another. We raised two beautiful English bulldogs together and had more fun than i can relay in a few words.
We always knew we would eventually tie the knot (when we were ready for kids) and that time finally came. On a magical September Saturday we gathered all of our family and friends at the Arbor Crest Winery to witness our ceremony, held in the most fitting of places, the enchanted forest. The day itself was a whirlwind, what i remember most vividly is the electrifying feeling, the amazing energy created by our guests. Their excitement for us was palpable, their years of joy visible, the entire day was amazing. Even mother nature contributed by blessing us with the most fiery sunset most of us had ever seen. It brings years to my eyes just thinking about it. I hope this day will live in our loved one’s hearts forever, because i know it will be in ours.
The best part is that Bill and i get to start a new chapter, where the best is yet to come.
