This is my little tribute to Chris. She is truly the love of my life. We found each other purely by accident but it was the best accident I could have ever hoped for. She is everything I could have ever dreamed to find in another person. She accepts me for who I am--no matter what. We have grown as people together. I look forward to spending the rest of my life learning and exploring with her. We enjoy doing little things together. Nothing spectacular in terms of cost or appearance, yet still special because we do these things together. Whether it is baking cookies, walking around the bay, riding a tandem bicyccle, renting a video or just reading the newspapers side by side it is special. I have been asked by my classes how do you know when you are really in love with someone. The best answer I can give is that without Chris in my life I feel incomplete. She is truly the half that makes me whole. I like how I feel when I'm with her and I hate how I feel when I'm not with her. I love hearing her breathing beside me as we sleep. I have never felt safer or more content than I do now knowing she is by my side. That is what love is to me. That is what Chris is to me.
