town that we both miss now that we live in the big city of phoenix where it is
too hot. our first night meeting was at a party where we met and we stayed up
until 6am talking and eventually capped it off with breakfast at denny's. it
was freezing that night and we walked to my jeep so i could drive us to dennys.
she said how cold she was and i said you needed to be "physically cold
but mentally warm" and you wouldn't feel cold it all. we often joke about
one night it was snowing hard and we stood in the hallway of her dorm (wilson
hall). i kept commenting on the snow plow, calling it mr. plow. i was actually
just building up the courage for our first kiss, which happened right there.
she later told me it was obvious how nervous i was, that i was practically
shaking, which was kind of funny. most of our happiest memories revolve around
our happy, carefree days there at northern arizona university (or just nau) in

document clerk at law offices of fennemore craig. we both really miss our days
at NAU, and wish it could be the way it used to be, without a care in the
Q7: Do you have any other comments or thoughts ?
A7: My good friend Steve Jones (and roommate) was friends with Tara's friend.
It was those two who introduced us, they kind of arranged the party where we
met and stayed up all night, etc.
Tara is currently applying to Law schools, praying she gets in because her
grades were not that great.
i proposed to her at "olive garden" in phoenix where i had the
waitress bring a piece of cheesecake for dessert with the ring slid over the
fork on the plate. everyone around us was watching and when she said yes
We spent many afternoons in college driving to Sedona and Schnebly hill,
skipping class and just enjoying the day.

in sedona, arizona.
Q8: What style of poem would you prefer ? (Happy, sad, romantic etc.)
A8: romantic, something that lets her know how much i still love her, even
though i've been far from the perfect husband. she's always told me i need to
"be aware of my surroundings", and my cleanliness in our house has
left a lot to be desired, but i want her to know i'm trying. if you could work
some humor into the poem, that would be good too, but i would like it to be

Life can be a messy thing,
and it can lead to untidiness,
but out of chaos emerges order,
and what follows is eternal
We met in Flagstaff, Arizona,
a small (winter) town that we both miss,
it's where we had breakfast at Denny's,
it's where I stole my first
Our days at NAU,
were so happy and carefree,
we both really miss those days,
and wish it was the way it used to be.
But life never stays in the one place,
and you just can't halt that marching
and sometimes things get tough,
and sometimes the words don't rhyme.
Life wasn't meant to be easy,
and marriage is harder still,
but you keep me mentally warm,
you keep out that winter chill.
We've now been married for one year,
we both have the benefit of hindsight,
but I'd like to set the record straight,
and put a few wrongs to write :)
Because you are still so beautiful,
and you are my dreams personified,
I love you from my very core,
I love you from way deep inside.
And today is the first day,
the first day in the rest of our life,
and I'm so proud to be with you,
I'm so lucky to have you as my wife.
And now I'm doing the accountant thing,
and you're busy applying to law schools,
maybe we shouldn't have skipped class so
maybe we should have just followed the
But everything for a reason,
or at least that's what they say,
and I'm so very glad to have married
the day I met you was my luckiest day.
And I love you so very much,
more than these mere words can express.
Tara Blewitt, you are beautiful.
Tara Blewitt, you are simply the best.
And I'm sorry that I'm not so tidy,
and that my clothes just hang on the
but just know that I love you madly,
and that I'll love you for evermore.
