Our Meeting Story - Terry's Version:

The first time I saw Paul he was engaged in a screaming match with a preacher. Not sure how much detail you wanna go into, but basically she was telling the crowd assembled about the evils of self-pleasure and Paul was not having it. He tarted back-preaching, asking everyone to raise there hands if they engaged in that act. I thought he was so fearless and was determined to find that boy! As fate would have it, I got the chance! I was taking Spanish and he worked in the language computer lab. I started spending more and more time in the lab "studying.' I definitely got an A that semester. I tried and tried to work up my courage to ask him out. It might have been a bit stalkerish - many times I would stay late until everyone else left, sneaking eye contact with him. Finally one day I found the guts and asked him out - using the corniest line ever. I reached my hand out and said, "My name is Terry Mickelson, would you like to go on a date?" He still makes fun of me today for that. That date happened, and as they say, the rest is history.

Our Meeting Story - My Version:
I didn't even know terry was watching me as I maniacally protested the street preacher. I did notice him everyday practicing spanish in his shimmery basketball shorts in the language lab where I worked. Some days I would even come in dressed up to try and get his attention. The one night he was hanging out till after everyone else was gone. If cell phones existed then I would have been texting all my friends "O M G, you know that cute guy I have been stalking in the language lab…" - not knowing he was doing the exact same thing. A few minutes later he reached out to awkwardly shake my hand and ask me out. I accepted.

My Speach To Him
When I first set eyes on you, I was attracted to you like a fish to a lure by your sparkly shimmer shorts and bright blue eyes, Within days of you reaching out to shake my hand and introduce yourself, you had already moved into my 15ft x9ft apartment where we had to roll the bed up to open the oven.

By summer we were living together in a car as we explored the wonders of North America from the Rockies to the great Corn Palace of South Dakota, having the time of our lives. At that point I already knew I found the person I had been searching for my whole life. A best friend, that despite a world of difference in preferences and desires always makes me feel wanted, safe and a part of something larger and more important.

Someone who I can share myself with and never hold back on for fear of being judged. Someone who snuggles me and keeps me warm on a cold winter night but doesn't even make me feel smothered. Someone who will hear me out even when I know you don't agree. Someone who is always ready for adventure and craves it as much as I do while being grounded enough to be responsible when its needed.

Thank you for making me believe that dreams really can come true. I love you.

His Speach To Me
I've never been satisfied with the ordinary. From the moment I Iaid eyes on you, I knew you were far from ordinary. From your crazy emotional outbursts to your intense concentration on projects, you always give everything. I'm not sure you know what holding back means - and I love that. I remember the first time I met your family. I thought for sure that a fight was about to start - the screaming and noise were so overwhelming. But I slowly learned that what I was hearing was unrestrained passion, and it drew me like a moth to flame.

You're never afraid to be exactly who you are - with friends and family, and perfect strangers alike. I love how you step on a dance floor and instantly demand attention. You're the best dancer I know.

Whether floating down a river in Germany at snail's pace or scrambling down cliffs at Zoar valley, it's always a fun adventure, and I can't wait to see where we'll go next. You constantly manage to find ways to surprise me.

Some say marriage is the end of the adventure. That now it's time to settle down and slow down, but I know that with you the adventure is only beginning. We have the best years of our life still ahead of us.

Rock Climbing at the Niagara Gorge

(e:terry), his brother and I took the boys out to the gorge for a day of hiking. We had so much fun playing in the rocks and climbing all over everything. Little fin didn't even want to go at the beginning but soon enough he loved it and was junping all over the place like a little monkey.

Everyone like the millipedes.

Saturday Night - Pride Toronto

On Saturday night we hit up the street festival a bunch. The streets were so packed with people for like 10 blocks or more. We tried out the grindr party at Fly, then we headed back to Church street for some people watching and craziness.

Haircuts for the Wedding


It was so hard to not just shave my head or leave it scruffy but everyone said I needed a wedding haircut.

I havent had a haircut as an adult so it was weird. I usually shave my head and then let it grow out. The guy even plucked our unibrows. I kind of liked my unibrow though.

(E:terry) ended up looking so cute.
