I've wondered for years who the man of my dreams would be, and I hoped he would come around soon, but I definitely did not see this man coming.  I had known him for almost a year and never once did he catch my attention.  But somehow in January he did.  

A few weeks later, just before I was about to take off for a month long trip to Hawaii, we took our newly established Wednesday date, but this time to World's Fair Park.  It was so stinkin cold, but I was head over heels and couldn't have cared less.  

Standing in the snow in the middle of the park, just moments after I took this photo, he kissed me for the first time.  I've never been more happy to be so caught off guard.
