When my Mom and Dad moved to a new place, my Mom got a job with a chain kind of like Wal-Mart. She worked for a really great guy named Russ. HA! Yes, you guys have got it right! Russ was my Mother's boss!!!! So, she introduced us in July of 2002. We went on our first date on August 30, 2002...which happened to be my birthday! By the way, Russ' birthday is August 29...he's one day older than me! Russ then asked me to be his girl on September 4, 2002.
For our first date, Russ took me to see "Signs" in the theater. I was never into suspensful or scary movies at that time and I held his hand so tight that he had to lean over during the movie and say "I'm going to need that hand tomorrow."
So, we dated for a year and 4 months and we were engaged on December 24, 2003. We were married on September 4, 2004, 2 years to the day from when we started dating. And as they say, the rest is history.
Here are a few fun photos of us.At our wedding, September 4, 2004
Still in love after six years together.
