To the love of my life, *: In two days, we'll be celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary. Remember when we first met 24 years ago at a party neither of us wanted to be at, and where our mutual appreciation for dark beer and Frisbee brought us together? Since then, we've lived halfway around the world and raised two great teenagers. I couldn't have asked for more! Love, *
