A Bit About Us!

Don & I met in 6th Grade in our hometown in Colorado. We didn't start dating, however, until our freshman year of college. I was in Oklahoma & Don was in New York. What a way to start a relationship! But we made it work with many flights back & forth to visit each other. The distance was good preparation for Army life, & I know that God was giving us a lot of practice!

We got engaged on Good Friday of 2007 in Central Park.  Don planned it all incredibly, surprising me completely!  I knew he would ask me, but I didn't know when!  It was just what I wanted: the two of us alone to share the moment.  Plus, we got pictures of the proposal!  It was my idea to take some pictures, & as usual, since we were alone, we set up the camera's timer.  Picture one: smile!  Picture two: goofy!  Picture three: ...Will you marry me?!  It was wonderful!  Isn't he clever?!  :)

We were married June 14, 2008 at my parents' home in beautiful Colorado.  We honeymooned at Petite St. Vincent in the Grenadines, a tranquil paradise!  We then moved to Lawton, Oklahoma where Don did his Field Artillery Officer's Training for about 7 months.  Then, on to Germany!

We love it here in Europe.  We have a cozy home, our two Great Danes, & many incredible opportunities to see the world!  We are very blessed & very happy.  God made us to be together, to be best friends, to stick together no matter what life brings our way, to be so in love!
