I am going to create either a book about how we came to be along with all the emails and such and include in it the wedding things or make seperate books. In the Simple Scrapbooks May/June 2007 Issue. They have tips on creating a Wedding Album So I thought I would answer if I can some of the Questions here so I have them on file...
*How did you Meet? We met through Yahoo 360 Late 2006. Then Myspace... Then IM and Email. He would read my blogs and I would read his. He was stationed in Korea and I was here in the states. Specifically Georgia. In January we decided to go ahead and meet. He had gotten PCS'd to Alabama and was just 4 hours away. He met me at my sisters house. Not under the best circumstances but when in my life did I have opportune cirumstances. Its all in the way you look at it.
*What did you think of each other at First? He will have to answer his but I think we already knew but were thinking "safe" and avoiding anything that would make us do irrational things. Even though we coresponded through the net for over a year I still had thoughts typical of a first blind date.
*When did you first talk about getting married? Seriously or half jokingly. I don't think I know to this day if he was joking when he first asked me or why he would be crazy enough. I think it was the late end of the Month of January toward Early Feburary 2007.
