StoryCorps Chicago: ‘The Most Expensive First Date Of All Time’

A few years ago, Haley Fitzsimons was introduced to her future husband by a mutual friend. Timing is everything, and when Kevin had finally gotten in touch with Haley, she had already quit her job in Ireland and was moving home to Chicago. He was nowhere near Chicago and many time zones away.

This interview was facilitated by StoryCorps Chicago’s Mary Bess Ser.
