To: Theresa
Soon after our 10 year wedding anniversary, we moved with the kids half a world away to Beijing. With the 25 year mark now in our rear-view mirror, we're preparing to move Up North, a mere 400 miles to the Twin Cities. Living at the midway point between the North Pole and the Equator - with the snow and ice, woods and lakes and long summer twilight - as empty nesters sounds pretty appealing to me! Happy Anniversary!
—Jim Accurso
