Chris and Dalene met on St. Patty’s Day in March of 2005. (Luck of the Irish!) They had a mutual friend, that decided that the two just “Had” to meet!! Dalene said No way was she going on a blind date, but Kirk insisted and promised that if it didn’t work out, he would make Chris stay away!! LOl. So Reluctantly, Dalene let Kirk give Chris her phone number. Chris being “Chris” doesnt wait for anything, and called Dalene right away. He said to Dalene, “I don’t want to waste eachothers time on the phone, unless we meet face to face, we won’t even know if we are even interested in eachother!” So they met at Starbucks later that evening. Dalene’s thoughts were, “WOW he is Huge, And Handsome!!” Chris’s thoughts were “She is Hot!!” So there it began…They became engaged 3 months later! (Because Chris isn’t good at waiting :)) But this would end up being one looooong engagement! Wanting to be SURE, READY, ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE, Dalene took her time…. Chris even bought her a secong wedding ring to seal the deal!! He was SURE!! Dalene watched Chris with her Children, Family, and Friends! He was so wonderful to all of them! All the while treating Dalene like a Princess! After meeting Chris, Dalene’s Grandma Jean pulled her aside at the last family reunion she was ever able to attend, took Dalene’s hands and looked her square in the eyes, and said “I LIKE HIM FOR YOU!! (While squeezing her hands Tightly as she said this.) Dalene knew at that moment she would marry Chris someday. Her family fell in love with him, and his family with her! Dalene knew that if she ever broke it off, her family would probably go with Chris! HAHAHA. Chris and Dalene took a long time to grow into the couple, parents, friends, and now husband and wife that they are today! But it was well worth the wait! A beautiful journey that will continue…They are in Love!
