My Greatest Adventure Why I Fell in Love With Tom

W hen Tom and I first met, I was immediately attracted to his kind heart. He was very handsome, but the thing that struck me the most was how nice he was to his patients and friends. I remember before we dated, I once overheard him tell a story to a patient. Tom had a friend who was terminally ill, so he would spend his free time at their bedside reading to them “Fried Green Tomatoes.” As you can imagine, the story melted my heart. Another thing I loved about Tom was his sense of adventure. He was always so much fun to be around, and I knew I could count on having a good time every day we spent together. We were friends before we dated, so most of our initial one-on-one time was spent running, swimming, or competing in athletic events. We often trained together, and we even ran a few triathlons together, too. But our first real date was to an Irish pub in Anacortes.

The paper described a contest where people could write and submit a poem about Guinniss beer, and the winner would be rewarded with their very own pub in Ireland. Tom pulled out a napkin and crafted a poem about his love for Guinness and his love for me. He submitted the poem, or else I would still have it. While he didn’t manage to win the contest, he succeeded in winning my heart. “Tom pulled out a napkin and crafted a poem about his love for Guinness and his love for me.” When Tom proposed, he took me to the mall, and we walked right to the jewelry store. There, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. When I happily agreed, he took me inside the jewelry store to pick out my ring. I didn’t know he was going to propose that day, but we had been crazy in love from the moment we laid eyes on each other, so I had known it would happen eventually. It was truly one of the happiest moments of my life. We got married in 2004 at his home with all of our friends and family. It was a warm, sunny day, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Then, he took me to the Cook Islands for our honeymoon.

That night, we went out for food and drinks. When we got to the pub, we looked over our

able to visit, which ended up being one of our greatest adventures. The other adventure would be running a business together. We work together very well, and if we could spend every moment of every day with each other, we would. Not only is he a great business partner, he is also my greatest friend. I couldn’t imagine life without him.
