Amy and Steve meet for the first time
Washington, District of Columbia
AMY'S VIEW: Well, Steve seemed awfully smart, and kind, and sweet, gearing up to make a mark in the world--everything I would have wanted in a guy ten years older. And I remember what I was wearing for our first handshake--a hot pink suit. As we put the article together, the thought crossed my mind: "This dear fellow has a crush on me!" I was busy dating a conservative defense analyst, at the time. But that dinner at the Spaghetti Garden changed everything. I was smitten. "Honey, he's awfully nice. He's just too young to be husband material," my girlfriends told me. Little did I know I was launching into the greatest romance and partnership of my life (and a bit of a roller coaster for the first six years).
