6. Wedding Date: June 24th 2006
7. How did you meet: Ok, this is an almost embarassing story, but had it not yeilded me Jeff, I wouldn't retell it. :o) I was a member of a huge gaming forum, and it was mentioned that if you made a bogus Hot or Not account, and put your ad up for locals to meet you can see all the local people in your area. I did, and it was even mentioned in my bio that I wasn't taking this seriously. But Jeff was persistant with sending me mail, and I finally agreed to meet him. We went to dinner on a Friday night, and our date lasted the whole weekend. This was 2 1/2 yrs ago.
8. Any children: I have 3, 1 girl and 2 boys age 11, 9, and 6. He has 2 boys, age 11 and 7. No we don't plan on having anymore.
9. Best thing about being married/engaged: Everything!!
10. Have you read the rules and agree to abide by them:Yes
11. How did you hear about us: Community search
12. Anything else you’d like to add: The proposal was the best, we had taken all the kids to the beach for one last summer trip, and I wanted a picture of Jeff and I with Haystack Rock in the background. I knew the pose I wanted also so I tried to get him to do it and he starts taking off my promise ring.. It still hasn't dawned on me yet, I was just confused as to why he was taking it off.. And then he got down on his knee and I honestly thought he was goofing around and getting a bogus picture for fun. And then he said "I know I don't have the real ring yet, but this will have to do. Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, this is my lame poem to ask if I can marry you." I think that's about the time the was taken was when I realized he was serious and he was actually proposing to me. I cried. :o) Here's the pic: http://www.pbase.com/naffro/image/48342631
