Twelve years ago this week Donna & I met through a mutual friend. Donna lived in Connecticut at the time & was in Tampa on vacation. We spent almost every evening together that week getting to know each other. The end of the week came & Donna extended her vacation through the weekend so she could spend a couple more days in FL.
By the time I dropped her off at the airport on Monday I knew my heart was hooked! We had made plans for me to visit her in CT in about 6 weeks. Well I couldn't wait 6 weeks & took a vacation 2 weeks later to go visit. Six weeks after that initial week, Donna was all packed up in a moving truck & on her way to Tampa.
We moved in together right off the bat, against the advise of most of our friends, many of whom also doubted our relationship would last due to our 13 year age difference. We took our chances anyways & here we are 12 years later.
