Our love story starts on a sweltering Texas summer day at our friend, Matt’s, farewell brunch. Michael and I sat diagonally from each other. I found it curious that we both knew the same group of people, but had never met. Michael, being the extrovert he is, didn’t hesitate to make his presence known. Matt and he got into a friendly banter that led to Matt asking, “Hey Mike! Don’t you have a date later?” Michael gave me a quick glance and responded, “Yeah, I have a date with her.” It was at this point I literally stood up and quickly made my way down the length of the table to sit with some girlfriends. Did he know I thought he was cute? Was he reading my mind? Luckily, Michael took my running away as an invitation to pursue me. According to him, I “gave him the eyes” and he just had to follow up. It only took a few phone conversations and dates for me to realize he is my best friend, my person, my forever and always.
