I was looking just now through a box of old photos, while Vianne took a rare but short nap and I came across this newspaper page that I'd saved for the last six years or so.

Imagine the scene: a 29 1/2 year old Amy, who at this point is pretty fed up with men doing stupid things to her, has begun - with much reservation, fear, & trepidation, mind you - interacting with this guy (Patrick Oden) that she met through a Christian Artists' website called Shoutlife.  She's on there promoting her CD, he's on there promoting his forthcoming book.  They struck up a "conversation" based on the sole fact of both having attended Wheaton, and even two of the same years (but had never met there).  They've gone from witty posts on each other's online profiles to more witty and involved private messages to phone calls!  And he's definitely caught her interest, but she's highly suspect, used to disappointment, and constantly wondering whether or not to open herself up to this...

Her head's a constant flurry of this wondering, as she goes about her life...when one day, at the office, she wanders into the break room to find this staring up at her from the counter...

Her mystic side kicked in long enough to save the page.

And, well, the rest, as they say, is history.
