Wise Men...One Year Later

 It’s been a year since Emmy Patterson and her fiancé Nick Klaussen were reunited through Madame Eve’s 1Night Stand agency. What have they been up to? Emmy sent a letter with her Christmas card, I’m happy to share it with you! Merry Christmas! 


Happy Holidays, Everyone!

          I apologize for the letter in this Christmas greeting (you know how I detest them), but so much has happened the past year, I wanted to share the news with the people I love.
          The biggest news is that I am a ‘Mrs.’ January 1st, Nick and I will be married one year, although he’s had my heart for more than twenty!
          I won’t bore you with details of our reunion, but he told me I fainted when I first saw him after twenty years of wondering if he was coming back! It’s hard to believe Nick disappeared three presidential administrations and how many political scandals ago!
          As in all things in his life and personality, he’s adapted to ‘normal’ life so well. The two years at Coronado ‘re-integrating, before he felt ‘normal’ enough again to seek me out,  undoubtedly helped, but we both are saddened we couldn’t be together for those 600-and-some precious extra days. He still gets terribly quiet on occasion and feels guilty about his self-indulgence regarding his situational past, but he’s 99.999% the Nick I fell in love with so long ago.
          Despite not knowing Seth most of his young life, the two are very close. They get along famously! We’ll be attending a graduation in Annapolis this Spring! We’re terribly proud Seth followed in his father’s footsteps, but are still concerned about what the situation of the world could mean for him.
          I’m still ‘doing glass,’ and it’s amazing that I can do what I love and make a living at it and for so many years. It seems regardless of the ups and downs in the economy, people still want inspiring ‘pretty things’ in their homes. And, yes, Paul Stark at Third Street Gallery in Milwaukee is still my agent. And yes, although a steadfast and wonderful friend, still a flaming pain in the butt! (Love you, Paulie!)
          Nick is also doing what he loves, albeit—thankfully—in much safer environment. He’s been hired as a firearms instructor for law enforcement agencies across the state of Wisconsin. He’s also kept busy visiting with Vets at hospitals and homes—it’s touching to watch him as he so intimately knows the pain these Warriors carry with them on a daily basis.
          There is some wonderful powder falling outside, so we’re off to grab our niece, Parker and hit the Kiwanis Park hills with our trusty, rusty saucers before dark sets in!
          Wishing you a full heart, a warm hearth, and love surrounds you this holiday season!

Merry Christmas,

          Emmy & Nick
(Fritz, Marie, Boof and Harry also wish you a ‘Rrrow Mrrow Mrrow!’)
