How Did You Meet?: We met in 8th grade at Clarkston Junior High in 1985.
Engagement Story?:I always told Chris if he were ever to propose to me I wanted something really romantic and really creative. This would be my second marriage; I was so young at my first wedding I just wanted this time to be really over the top. So on February 13th Chris went to Rottermond Jewlers and bought my engagement ring. He was going to propose the next day on Valentine’s Day. He told me later that he bought it in the morning and thought all day how he was going to make it special and a big deal for me. That same night, February 13th he came up stairs while I was about to go to sleep and started reading me a poem and handed me the ring and asked me to marry him. I said, “Yes! But tomorrow is Valentine’s Day!” He said he knows but he “couldn’t wait”. I thought it was so sweet, that he could only hold on to the ring for only one day, talk about burning a hole in your pocket!
