A 20-Year Love Story That Started with an Uninvited Thanksgiving Guest

We can't help but fall in love with a charming couple who recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary.

Dina Honour was hosting a Thanksgiving meal for her friends in New York in November 1997 when one of her guests invited a friend to join them. Dina's celebration was crashed by Richard Stegall, who is now her husband. Although Dina was frustrated at first, she couldn’t help but be smitten with Richard, and Richard was also smitten with her. The two struck up an instantly engrossing discussion about Hamlet over a slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

Their relationship grew from there. Because Honour had recently broken up with her boyfriend and Stegall had stopped seeing someone in London, the two began their relationship with a month of daily long-distance phone calls and the occasional letter delivered across the Atlantic. Thanksgiving has become an important event for the couple now that they have been married for 20 years, and they continue to celebrate it even though they no longer live in the United States.
