mickey to my minnie

when i started to date pat, i thought it would be something casual. i was just ending something with a not so special someone, and had zero interest in a serious relationship. i didn't know if i ever wanted to get married, or have kids, or settle down, or do any of the above. and then a very unexpected thing happened. he became the person who made me want to shape my life to include those things i was never sure i wanted. and now, almost 3 years after our first date, my better half has been given an extraordinary opportunity, and it will take us both on a very new, very unexpected adventure. we will be leaving the city where we met and fell in love, and will be making new memories, and new roots in sunny florida. this is the second journey i will embark on with him by my side, and i have to be honest, i absolutely can't wait.
