Lee is a dear high-school friend turned fiance who I once told in the 5th grade to quote: “Take a picture, it will last longer.” After reconnecting 17 years later, I’ve discovered that he is still my best friend, my number one fan, and often my inspiration—albeit target—for a lot of what I write.
Two years (to the day) from the time we started dating he got down on one knee and said to me: “Although a picture would have been nice… I want something that lasts forever. Will you marry me?”
So I guess that’s that. We’re a long way from the 5th grade now—but his proposal is proof positive that it’s never too late for love.
