In their words:
We met in 1989 when I was a freshman and he was a sophomore at Connecticut College.  We were friends throughout college, and had one platonic date on New Year’s Eve 1992.  After graduation we went our separate ways.  Michael stayed mostly in NYC while I lived abroad in Mexico, Tahiti, California and Hawaii before returning to NYC in 2002.  Fast forward to October 2009 when we crossed paths on Park Avenue.  Divine intervention must have been at work because he recognized me after 16 years (Michael wears contacts).  He called my name and I actually heard him (I can be hard of hearing). So….eight thousand and eighty days  (8,080!) after our first meeting, we were married.
