~How We Met~
Eharmony.com.....plain and simple. I love eharmony and would recommend it to any and every person who has had past relationship trouble or just can't seem to find the right person. I thought I knew what I wanted and who would be a suitable match for my personality, but after many failed relationships and many boxes of tissues and chocolates, I was tired of going through the same thing again and again. So I signed up for eharmony and 1 month later I started talking to Bill on the phone. We talked on the phone for at least a month before we fially had our first date. He took me to Gerry Franks Konditorei (http://www.gerryfrankskonditorei.com/) which is a little cake shop close to downtown Salem, OR. We hit it off pretty well and were there talking until the cake shop closed. Two days later we had our second date, bowling and then out to coldstone for ice cream. And on it went. I remember our first kiss very well. It was a dark and beautiful starry night. Bill took me in his truck out to the middle of the country where there were no interferringcity lights. He put a blanket and pillows in the back of his truck and we layed back there ad watched the stars together. He was so nervous. Finally after laying there for about an hour he finally kissed me and it was magical. Now 9 months later we cannot be seperated. We spend pretty much (outside of work) every waking minute togther and still crave more time. It feels great being in love with your best friend.
With the help of my Nanas 20% discount Bill bought this beautiful ring for me.
My main things in the wedding are:
Liberty Fellowship Church in Independence, OR Isn't it cute? My little white wedding chapel.
The Church's Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/libertyfellowship)
The coolest thing ever is that our wedding is going to be broadcasted live on the churchs special live website and they are going to archive it so anyone can see it whenever they want! Here is the website for that: http://www.justin.tv/libertyfellowship#r=sEtYqqY~
Reception (If it doesn't rain) (Please pray that it doesn't rain)
Will be held in the back yard of Bill's aunt Jackies house. (Pictures coming soon...)
We have decided to go with a small cake for us and have the guests eat cupcakes that match our cake. This is what we want with a few minor details changed.
