September 1995 - Her break-up is done and they correspond back and forth. Eventually she drives 2 hours for a visit. He is not 500 pounds with volcaneous fissures on his countenance as she figures any male of 30 who works in a church and is not married must be (she has been to the youth events - she knows they are meat markets for the youth leaders and there was nothing ever there that she wanted to 'buy').
Him (shakes her hand as she is getting in the car): Well, you'll be hearing from me.
Her: I didn't realize I was interviewing.
First Official Date: Her grandfather's brother's Memorial Service and Country Club reception.
Christmas 1995: He meets her grandparents and gives her a stuffed bear (it's cuter than it sounds) inducing this...
Classic Gram quote: He is so cute and seems to really like you... and this bear he gave you is nice too.
February 1, 1996: They are engaged!
August 24, 1996: The wedding
Ever Since: The marriage
Happy 10th Anniversary TDH!!
