Poetry & Mazel Tov

The lights arent brighter,the tastes any sweeter
Don't know what im feeling, but I like when I meet her
We have little fun but we talk for hours
I think I'm beginning to feel cupid's powers
Is it real is it fake, there's no way I can know
So for now at least Im gonna take it slow
Some people get lucky and I one of them?

Now, just a few short months after that whirlwind first week of dating, our close friends Doc & Mati Feinerman are engaged. (No, we did not set them up, but dammit, God knows we tried!) It's impossible to express in a simple blog post just how special these two people are, and Mati likely wants to kill me for what's already here, but suffice it to say that we love them dearly. :)

No - let me add one more point. About six months ago, I wrote this about other friends of ours...
I'm confident that they will end up happily married to great people, because they themselves are great people.
Being a mensch and being yourself are the two most important things - in dating, in marriage, in life.
I'm proud that most of my friends can be both at the same time.
Doc & Mati epitomize this. Mazel Tov, guys. May you always be such incredible friends and inspirations - both to each other and to all of us.
Love, Us
