Caroline and I met through mutual friends who are both chefs as well. One day, Jake told Caroline she has to meet this guy (me), and we hit it off.I have never let the planning of our marriage affect my work. When Im at work, its about work. When I am at home, I make Caroline the focus.I wasnt nervous about running the restaurant at all when Blythe was gone. I had run the kitchen for 9 months before she became executive chef. I was fully confident in my staff and that everything would run smoothly. When Blythe was at the wedding, we went about our business.It made me happy to know that Blythe knew that I did and do a good job. It is always nice to hear that she appreciates what I do.
