A little over 20 years ago, I became friends with a really awesome girl named Stephanie, who introduced me to Wil at her New Year’s party a year after I met her. She had another friend at this party (who she had met while they were both doing a Charlie Brown play in 7th grade) named Damion, who I instantly liked. He was cute, incredibly funny and just the right amount of crazy goofball. Damion spent the next year after we met dating occasionally, telling us hilarious stories of his experiences but never really finding the right person for him. He finally did meet and fall in love with someone who was not only a tall, blonde haired, blue-eyed beauty on the outside, but a kind, caring, supportive and loving person on the inside. They balanced each other out perfectly.
Over the past 18 years, these two have supported each other in their careers, vacationed with family and friends, and purchased a home together. Now that they are approaching their 50’s, they decided to figure out retirement and estate planning. They have always been committed to each other in every sense of the word but on the legal side of things, their attorney suggested they get married because it will make things easier down the line with everything they have together.
They decided to make their commitment to each other legal and so today, they will exchange vows in a civil ceremony with Stephanie and her husband as witness. It always makes me so happy when two people find each other and get to share their lives together. So congratulations, Damion and Mike. It’s about damn time!!
