Most people know our story, but we’ve been together so long that we don’t talk about it much to new people anymore. Nowadays it’s quite common to meet on the internet – but that wasn’t the case in 1999.

Yes, we met in the Love Stinks chat room at Yahoo. Go ahead and laugh – we still do! The short version is: we met in the fall of 1998, talked on the phone for the first time in January 1999, and he came out to visit a week and a half later. The rest is history, so they say!

So here we are, 15 years later, still celebrating Groundhog Day. Isn’t life funny?

(No, the pics aren’t of us today – they are from February 1999. We really haven’t changed that much in 15 years though)
