Indianapolis, 2008

So: I write a book about dating and football. And the book ends with me still alone. Happy, but alone.

Then the book comes out, and a man I knew in college hears me talking about it on the radio and gets in touch. We start talking. We can’t stop talking.

This picture was taken a few months after I met Eric. He was still living in Indy. I was back in Pittsburgh, but I flew home to Indiana so that we could go to the first home game at the brand new Lucas Oil Stadium.

Colts vs. Bears.

The Bears won, but we didn’t care. We were in love.
