John & I met at work. He was too shy to talk to me. The day before his birthday, another co-worker told me it was going to be his birthday, so I bought a birthday card & wrote my number inside. Two days later, 8-9-06, we went out on our first date.

On 1-3-08, John & I had made plans to go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra. After we ate & began walking back to the truck, he handed me the envelope with the tickets & told me to look inside. I reached in, looked at the seats, & closed the envelope. John said "There's something else in there." & I told him "It's cold, can it wait until we get back to the truck?" (I was wearing a skirt.) Once we got into the truck, he handed me the envelope again & I looked into the envelope & saw a ring. Stupidly, I grabbed it and asked "What's this?" He said "What do you think it is?" & then asked me to marry him.

We're getting married 8-29-09 in Galesburg, IL at the Knights of Columbus Hall. The reception is also at the same location. I've already bought my dress from David's Bridal & my bridesmaids are still looking for dress styles they like. My uncle/godfather is going to walk me down the aisle during the ceremony. John & I have decided to leave out the parent's dance from the reception. We're still on the lookout for a really great DJ & also keeping our fingers crossed that it's not going to rain on our big day so we can still do individual pictures outside in my grandma's garden beforehand.
