The Story of Joey and Jessie



Tuesday was our 8th Wedding anniversary. Hubby had to work the night shift that night so we didn't get to do anything special but he did have my Mom make me a special dish for dinner! I wish we could have had the meal together!

Here is a tribute to us!


We met in June of 1999 at NY Puerto Rican Day Parade. The parade was a yearly experience for me and for Joey it was his first time at the parade. I was by myself when he approached me because my sister left the 
parade early. I decided to stay by myself because I wanted to see Marc Anthony perform. I never stayed anywhere by myself but that day I did. Joey had never been to the parade before but his cousin convinced him to go that year. Joey spotted me and we started talking. His opening line was that I was prepared ( I had a mini cooler with a six pack of soda with me) His cousin got sick so we didn't get to talk for a long time but we did exchange numbers (he left his number on a paperchicken fan- I still have it!) He called me that very night and we talked for a long time and a week later we went on our first date (dinner at a cuchifrito spot in Harlem and then we hung out by the 
World Trade Center) We have been together ever since then! He proposed on September of 2000 in front of my family and we were married in a beautiful church in Harlem on December 9, 2000. 8 years and 3 kids 
later, Joey is still the same sexy, funny, stubborn, smart, charming, athletic man that I met at that parade! So to my baby... I love you!!!
