We met our first year of university at MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, KS. For me it was love at first sight..... for Dusty, well.... he was too shy to even talk to girls so who knows what he was thinking?! haha When he took a year abroad in Ecuador, he and I continued to talk over email and instant messenger. We quickly became best friends and shared all of our lifes joys and pains. Over the next 8 years we continued to stay amazing friends and talk on a regular basis.
July 13, 2009 we talked for the first time in several months. Both of us were single for the first time in years and we were finally able to truly share our feelings with each other. A light clicked on and we just knew then and there that we wanted to be together. Within 2 weeks we had booked tickets to visit each other for the first time in years. Dusty finally was able to move closer and now we see each other at least every other week. We're very much in love and looking to spend the rest of our lives together.
We plan to get married on November 24, 2010 in Trelawny Jamaica on the beach at Breezes Trelawny Resort. We hope all our family and many friends can make it. We decided to do a destination wedding as, no matter where we got married, at least one side of the family would have to travel considerable distance to the other family's country. Plus, it has been a long time dream of mine to get married on the beach.
We have yet to set up details, but as we finalize things, I will keep everyone updated; so be sure to check back regularly.
We love our friends and families and hope that many will be able to join us for our special day. We will try and have a reception in each country so that those who were unable to attend the ceremony will at least be able to attend a reception. Thank you to all those who have played a major role in our lives. We love you.
