We should make a list.
Of what we are looking for...
But, what if we lose the napkin?
About seven years ago, Susan and I met up for our quarterly "catch up" dinner date at the local sushi hole in the wall. We talked about everything - life, careers, purses, etc. The topic of relationships came up, and of course, the will we ever find a "good" guy? question. Because, really, they all seem to be taken. With restaurant napkins and pens in hand, Susan and I wrote down the ten ideal qualities of our future husbands. Qualities like "family-oriented" and "educated" topped the list. Oh, and I drew a picture of him, too. Little did we know the power of this list... she would mention how Paul (my BF) asked about me. She demanded I call him that night for a date. Yes, in the loud and crowded sushi restaurant. She even took a picture of me calling him. A few dinners later, we would meet again at a different restaurant & she would gush about this new man in her life - Eric. But, this was no ordinary guy because she was smitten and she just knew, he fulfilled the list. This time, I took the picture of her talking to him - I mean, this is the picture she'll show her grandkids of how two single friends each found love.
Susan, I can't even begin to tell you how excited and happy I am for you and Eric. When you asked me to take your engagement photos, I was so honored. I am so lucky to have you as my dear friend and confidant. I can't wait for your wedding in September... Paul & I will be in the sidelines cheering you both on! =)
