Ten years ago today, my aunt Nanette suggested that her friend Niki send me an email and flirt with me. We were both in dead-end relationships and she thought we’d get along great. We had the same birthday. We had similar senses of humor. We both loved Nanette.
It was a great idea. We’ve been married seven and a half years. We’re moving to our second house together. We’re on our third car. We’ve survived a world of pregnancy problems. We’ve lost one dog and gained two more. We have two fantastic sons. We’re closer than ever.
And we still love Nanette.
