Harry Connick Jr. And Jill
Harry says that as their anniversary approached, he went back to the first memory of his wife Jill.
At the time, Harry was broke and just beginning his career in the music industry. But when he first saw Jill, he knew instantly she was the most beautiful woman he had ever laid eyes on. He felt she was completely out of his league but he had to try to impress her anyway.
Smitten and besotted, Harry introduced himself and gave her an advanced copy soundtrack on a cassette of the score he wrote and recorded for the movie, "When Harry Met Sally."
Jill must've been impressed because the pair have been married for 27 years and have three daughters together!

You’re a sunrise, you’re heaven.
You’re the reason that God rested on day seven."
