We feel so blessed to have each found our best friend and soul mate all wrapped up in the same perfect person, to have lived out our dreams of world travel and adventure, and to have such wonderful friends and family to share it all with.

We spent hours on the phone with one another every night and into the early morning.My mother placed strict "D hours" on the phone..talking after 10pm.
