Happy Anniversary

Halie (my fiancé) and I are celebrating our 7th anniversary of dating today, December 9th. Since we are leaving for London (!!!!) Wednesday, we decided to forego exchanging gifts. So instead, I decided to use my blog to tell the world what a gift Halie is to me each and every day.

When Halie and I started dating 7 years ago, she was 15 and I was 17. As you could easily guess, we were immature and stupid. This led to numerous fights over nothing and a few breakups (that we like to ignore now). Luckily, we persisted and survived high school and the transition to college. Looking back, I wouldn’t have had it any other way. We grew together. We learned together. We found out what love was and we both decided that the other was worth giving this thing called love.

7 years later, we’re much different people. We have both graduated with Bachelor degrees and she’s finishing up a Masters. We are now engaged and have a date set for August 5th, 2013, with the ceremony at a castle outside of Bristol, England. I couldn’t be more excited to start the next chapter of my life with Halie. Growing up, I had fairly high standards for the woman I wanted to marry and Halie meets and exceeds everything I always desired. She’s incredibly smart, an impressively hard worker, and beautiful. She shares my desire for adventure and wants to see the world.

Let’s get started!!

I Want You to Meet Someone

Tuesday afternoon I found out that one of my coworkers died of a heart attack. It was shocking and sudden. He was at work Monday, just as upbeat and jovial as always. He was such an incredible person that I wanted you to know about him. His name was Harold Leblanc and he was a great man.

As a coworker, he was always happy, always ready with a warm and uplifting word for you. You couldn’t pass him in the hallway without him greeting you, no matter how many times a day you passed him. He’d see me down the hallway, “Hey T, what it be!?” He’d ask about my mom (they worked together many years ago as drafters). He’d ask about my fiancé, Halie. He’d ask about my future plans. He was just as excited about my life as I was.

Going into his office for work, we’d end up talking about life. We talked about jazz and the blues, great lounges with great drinks, and the lure of big cities (he loved New Orleans). His daughter is a speech-pathologist and Halie’s in grad school to be one so we talked a lot about that. He’d ask about my shows and who I was playing with. He told me about his wife, his daughter’s wedding in Hawaii, and you could see his love for his family.

Farewell, Harold. We’ll miss you greatly.
