How We Met:
3.30am Sunday 17th June 2007 - I had come out to Surfers to be a taxi for my friend, and was waiting him to come out of Macca's. I was sitting outside, half asleep, wearing jeans, a big fluffy jumper & slippers then this random tall guy (Sean) walked up to me. The first words he said were That jumper looks warm

Transport:
so I didn't get to see him for a while but we were on the phone for hours on end every night."
Bomboniere:
Sean had dropped many hints - during one of my visits to Cairns he dropped the very obvious hint of taking me to a jewellery store to visit a family friend" and asking me what I thought of different jewellery in the display cases! Later I decided that I was going to make the move to Cairns for a fresh start and take a chance on love! Sean flew down to help me pack and drive my car up
