"Stepping off into the unknown and taking that proverbial leap of faith has, for me, always produced a bonanza. Most of us shudder at the memory of youthful blind-dates (talk about taking a leap of faith), but the one and only blind date I had opened doors to a new life. On July 6, 1968, I met my husband-to-be, Lou, on a blind date on his 26-foot Thunderbird sailboat, Aureola. We were married March 1, 1969."
