My family and I had just moved after my high school graduation and I was new in town. During the few months after relocating, I searched for a job and signed up for classes at a junior college. One of my old friends from school had moved to the same place a few years earlier and I ended up running into her at the store. She invited me out to a Halloween party the following week. I went with her but did not know anyone but Stephen had caught my eye. Throughout the evening, I would find myself looking in his direction and we would lock eyes and turn away both embarrassed. We didn't officially meet that night but a week after the Halloween party I was invited to a BBQ. Stephen just happened to be there. We engaged in small talk and before I knew it, he had asked me out on a date. That is how it all started!
To our amazing family and friends, you have been there for us through it all and we wanted to take the time to thank you. We are so grateful to have you in our lives and we would not know what to do without you. We love you and thank you for making our honeymoon cruise possible!
