Catherine had seen my Instagram feed, so she already knew I was a sucker for succulents. She may have had an advantage before we even first spoke, though it was an unnecessary one. Catherine did not have to charm me by mentioning her mutual love of succulents. I fell in love with her right away for so many reasons, among them her honest love of marriage and commitment, her penchant for organization, her dazzling smile, and the obvious affection she felt for her fiancé. Although, a mutual love of succulents sure didn't hurt!
