Love Story from Liv:

We met in Tanzania as members of the same Peace Corps training class and got to know each other during the 10 week training session. We spent a weekend together shadowing another volunteer before being sent to our separate village schools to begin teaching. Once we were at our schools, we visited each other frequently and traveled together around Tanzania and to Victoria Falls in Zambia while on vacation. We also planned several projects together at our schools, including a very successful HIV/AIDS conference with our students and students at the school for the deaf in Chris’s community.

When we returned to the US, we moved to Golden, Colorado and worked for a few years. Since we love to travel together, we took a trip to France and England in the summer of 2011. Chris proposed at a family cabin in the mountains around Utah. We went out snowshoeing and came upon a hill overlooking the winter wonderland. We sat down on a log to enjoy the view as the bright sunshine filtered through the snow-covered tree branches. Chris began playing in the snow with a stick and wrote “Will you marry me?” And of course I wrote “yes” in reply!
