I met my wife Lanna Lee Maheux, fifteen years ago today at the Gershwin Hotel near Madison Square Park in New York City.
Our first date included dinner at a West African place in Brooklyn and seeing a show by Cody Chestnutt and Bobby Blue Bland at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. There was a lot of kissing involved.
And the first date ended up being a weekend. A few weeks later I decided to pack up my stuff from California and move back east permanently.
Around a year later we got engaged and on July 3, 2004 we got married.
It’s been a great fifteen years with a wonderful partner. I love you Lanna Lee!
