It Passes In The Blink Of An Eye


It seems like it was only yesterday that I boarded a plane in Reno, Nevada, and flew across the country to meet a man I'd only spoken to online, or the phone, and seen in only a handful of photos or email attachments.
It seemed, to a lot of people, crazy.
It seemed, to me, the right thing to do.
And so I did....fly across the country from Reno to Ft. Lauderdale.
And when I stepped off the plain, there was the most adorable man, wearing a bow-tie and the cutest smile, holding a bunch of roses, for me.
This morning that same adorable man, without the bow-tie, but still wearing the cutest smile, sat across the table from me for breakfast.
Ten years ago....yesterday....I met Carlos face-to-face.
Some said it was crazy.
I said it was crazy perfect.
And it still is......
