Kate & Joe at the Coeur D’ Alene Lake

Here is something from beautiful Kate:
Joe had been friends with my brother for over ten years before I met him on Coeur D’ Alene Lake.  After meeting, we snuck around and dated for about two months without telling friends and family.  Our relationship was revealed when Joe moved out of the Spokane area for work.  We commuted for one and a half years in a long-distance relationship before his career brought him back to Spokane (and to me).
I knew the proposal was going to happen on a family trip to Mexico, so I was very surprised when Joe proposed to me in our living room just weeks before the trip.  He could not wait any longer!  His charismatic personality, persistence, and wonderful sense of humor are the reasons I fell for, and continue to love him.  Joe makes me laugh every day, which is reason enough to spend the rest of my life with him.
