TERESE: One year ago, we were guests at another wedding, but we were about to go our separate ways. Then we got back together. I'm sure a few of you are wondering what happened. We talked about who we are as people. I told you that you're it for me. It's Paul and I'm ok with that. You've surprised me. You're far from the model citizen, you're not far from it. You did that for me. I'm really grateful.
