I've thought about putting together this list for some time, but thought it would be too easy and cheesy to do it around Feb 14th, so I waited.

Just my way of very publicly saying thank you to my wife for saying "yes" and making the first 7 years wonderful.

An Italian restaurant called Pan e Vin. (It closed less that a year later I found out.) I had several good meals there, but also had one "interesting" pizza that came with ham and an egg. Sunny side up. Right in the middle. As good as the food was....

I became intrigued by the waitress who was waiting on me. After 4 dinners, I screwed up enough nerve to ask if she would meet me after work the last night I was there. She wasn't interested in me per se, but figured that since I was from New York and was leaving the following day, I was probably harmless.

After a couple hours, Joanna and I agreed to exchange addresses and write to each other and left it at that. We continued our letters over the next 2 years and eventually became good friends.

I wrote about passing by Niagara Falls and she mentioned how she had always wanted to see them, so I invited her over. She stayed at my parents so that she wouldn't think I had an ulterior motive.

I picked her up in NYC and we went to upstate NY and the romance began 48 hours later taking us both a bit by surprise. She stayed for 3 weeks and we were quite hooked when she left to go back home.

Home was in Warsaw, where I made the trip to meet her parents in '99.

Did I mention that when she first talked about meeting an American that they were worried I was part of a cult? We got that straightened out and they gave me a warm reception. Halfway through the trip, I proposed to her in Polish and she said yes.

We've settled in Albany, NY and soon after we got married, she realized how much I enjoyed board games and has become a bit of a gamer herself. Don't you just love happy endings!
