Here's how we met

We met on family property he was helping my family build a new dock on the river. There was a cookout later and that is when things go serious!

Here's how we got engaged

He was acting funny that day, asking me over and over what time I got off work. We went down to my family property again and that is where he asked me. I was totally shocked. He had gotten my grandmothers ring from my mother and had it reset in a different ring, so it was very special. I was so excited and said yes of course.

Why we're excited about our wedding date

We are getting married April 20, no real reason we chose that date except the time will have changed and it will be nice weather. We are really excited, we are having it on my family property in Quincy, FL, in a pasture. Country setting and simple as possible, I have a neat way I am coming in and can't spoil it.

Our worst date

Well not sure its the worst date, but we went to the Daytona 500 and it rained we were soaking wet and cold. But we had a good time.

Who's the better cook, and why?

He is, but we cook together. He is teaching me a lot. I already knew how to cook but he has some easier ways at doing things.
