The Big Think

There aren’t many times you can look back on your life and say with certainty that a decision changed you. Usually we exist in the sort of gray muddle of cause and effect that you can’t notice (see Sliding Doors). But today is such a day.

20 years ago today Erin and I started dating. Having the DTR talk while sitting on a park bench on the side of a river (a propitiuous location if you know me) and making a commitment to give a relationship a try. 20 years ago I won a best friend for life. She’s talented, beautiful, funny, caring, compassionate, a good listener, and a loyal friend. She’s not just everything I could have wanted in a partner, she’s more than I could have ever imagined in one. 20 years ago today I won the biggest lottery of my life and I wouldn’t change a single thing. I love you, Erin.

  1. First off, you guys are awesome, and an ongoing inspiration to me and to Kathy. So glad to call you friends.

    Second, this is a terrific photo. Where’d it get taken, and who did it?

  2. Thanks, Sean! Kind words from a kind man.

    This was shot last Saturday night at the photobooth in the lobby of Waco Hall. It was during a rather rushed intermission. I had planned the photo for about a week but had less than 30 seconds to get in position and have them shoot it before I had to sprint back to the pit. Erin was a good sport about it. 🙂

  3. I wouldn’t undo a thing, either, sweetie. I love you…
