On April 1st Luiz and I celebrated or 11th year anniversary. We have come so far together.
On a fluke we met in our shared neighborhood in San Francisco. He invited me back to his place for coffee. Two days later I asked him out for Italian food. Not long thereafter he was encouraging me to come with him to Rio for Carnaval. Soon we were living together.
We both agree we have made good choices. Our shared taste in travel, adventure, improvisation and now have kept us tight these many years. Celebrating our 11th year is much like celebrating our first. Lucky us.
