Tia & Kenneth Engaged !

Kenneth and I had our first date on August 6th, 2013 after meeting online! Kenneth was just arriving in Spokane to begin his next chapter at Fairchild AFB after leaving Dayton, Ohio and literally was checking into the Davenport Towers the night of our date. From what I’ve been told by Kenneth, he wasn’t necessarily looking to find “the one”, but as we know now, God had a different plan. We met for a drink at the Safari lounge and right when he walked in there was an instant attraction. True to Kenneth’s style, he was a few minutes late so when he asked to be excused for a minute while he checked into his room. I, true to my style, asked if he didn’t mind me ordering a glass of wine while I waited. Right away, the southern gentleman in him shined as he told the bartender “get her whatever she needs and put it on my card”. We spent the evening talking about our faith, music, family and more! I could tell by the end of the date that Kenneth was a truly a gentleman (he is from Texas) and different than anyone else I had met before. It was the best first date for both of us! As Kenneth says…..since then we’ve been ‘”living the dream”!

To some, October 18th, 2014, is a holiday only familiar to residents in the midwest known as Sweetest Day. Little did Jessica and Zach know that on that day they would meet their sweetest!

Our first meeting was filled with adventure and romance, unbeknownst to Zach he had planned my dream date! When Zach walked up to my house and I opened the door I thought he has such pretty eyes. I also noticed something behind his back, he had a single red rose and a bottle of sweet wine for Sweetest Day. I thought to myself he is crazy, and that he made up a holiday, but I just went with it, and looked it up later. It is an actual holiday! After our adventurous hike, an amazingly delicious dinner, and a romantic star gazing venture, Zach asked me what I was doing next weekend and I replied “seeing you.”

Our romantic and adventurous excursions didn’t stop at our first date. Our next adventures included romantic dinners, concerts, the ballet, hiking, wine tasting, exploring Leavenworth, pumpkin carving, apple picking, cooking together, or even just spending hours talking. The more time I spent with Jessica, the greater my love grew for her. I first knew that she was “the one” after the third date, when I realized that she is different from everyone else I had met and that she is everything that I am looking for in someone and more! My love for her culminated on November 29th when I first told her that I loved her beneath the twinkling lights of the Christmas trees.

I knew that Zach was “the one” after our third date. The way that I knew, was that I could be myself around him, goofy, silly, and that I could tell him everything. My mother was right, when she said “that you just know,” as I knew when I knew.

Thursday, March 26th, 2015, started as any typical Thursday, work followed by Bible study at the end of the day. I didn’t have a meeting after work that day so I decided to get some shopping in. Unbeknownst to me, back at my house Zach was busily preparing for his marriage proposal. I finally got home, leaving myself 30 minutes to get to Bible study. I pulled into the driveway seeing his truck and thinking, “oh no, something is wrong, he is here in the middle of the week.” I ran around the outside of the house thinking he had to be out there since he doesn’t have a key. He wasn’t there. So I then decided to go inside. Upon walking inside, I found a path lined with candles covered with rose petals. I let out a squeal, and then it took me a second to realize that the path was leading me somewhere. I followed it quickly, as it led me to my bedroom, on my way I noticed that the table was set for dinner and that our song was playing in the background. I went in my room and didn’t see Zach at first, just a big card that said I love you on it. Then I turned, seeing him in his suit and tie. He then went down on one knee and asked me “Jessica Louise Dugger, will you marry me?” I said “yeah, yeah” and I was in such shock. Then he put the ring on my finger and I said a “million times yes, yes, I will marry you!” This was the beginning of our commitment to each other for the rest of our lives!

Adelyn + Carly + Greg

Adelyn Mae came into this world three days past her due date, but when she decided to come she was good and ready! The night she was born she held up her own head and at that moment I knew she was going to live up to the framed picture of a Shakespeare quote her Auntie M bought her, “And though she be but little, she is fierce.” Throughout Addy’s first year she has proved that again and again! She knows what she wants and at the tender age of one is ready to take on the world. In the words of her daddy, “oh man those baby blues…we are in trouble!”

Rebecca & Eric at EJ Roberts Mansion

Love Story
We met online through Plenty of Fish in fall 2012. Through the next 2 years, we were friends and dated off and on. October 31, 2014 was a turning point in our relationship. We went out to dinner and a haunted house, but ended up falling asleep on the couch curled up together while watching a movie. We realized at this point that it was silly for us not to be together. We obviously kept coming back to each other for a reason and it seemed meant to be. January 17, 2015, we were sitting discussing our plans for the future. We were talking about moving across the country for specialized schooling, but didn’t want to be apart or have our relationship end in a strange place away from family and friends. At some point Eric couldn’t hold it in any longer. He told Rebecca that we belong together and shouldn’t be apart and asked her to marry him. While Rebecca had many reasons to wait (didn’t have a ring, he needed to get her dad’s blessing, etc), ultimately she said yes of course! Once we were engaged, pieces starting to fall in to place quickly. We found a place to get married, invited family and a few friends, and said our vows on April 1, 2015. We are completely ecstatic and are excited to start our new life together.
