We met in the fall of 2003! Cheril was performing poetry at an event hosted at The Center in NYC, and Monica happened to be in attendance. While collecting e-mail addresses for her mailing list, Cheril put a star next to Monica's contact info to remember who she was (it turns out Monica saw that), and we began chatting through AOL e-mail and AIM messenger. There were no smartphones back then! MySpace hadn't even started! haha It was a long time ago, but the years that have gone by don't feel long at all.


The Center


In 2004, Cheril proposed to Monica at the historic Stonewall Inn.


We got married at Oheka Castle in Huntington, NY.


It's been full of love, life, adventure, typical life trials and triumphs (in sickness and in health is real)!
