Once upon a time, Eugene met Cristina at a party. He thought she was pretty, she thought he was funny. They danced and had a good time. A couple of days later, she left the city and went back to the the province. He followed. Good thing he did -- 38 years, 5 children, 6 grandchildren, 3 houses, 10 cars, 2 Christmas trees, and lots of love later, here we all are. Happy Anniversary!
