A Spark Wedding

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, November 03, 2011

Once in a great while a fairy tale comes true! Yes, I met my Kansan husband through Spark People.

We met each other by an accident of fate through a mutual Spark Friend (you know who you are). The tie brought us together was that Greg is an outdoorsman and I am a nature lover. We began corresponding through email and long phone conversations which eventually led to my Kansas man flying to Ohio to meet. Love and a marriage proposal followed.

A couple of months later, I packed my car and took McGee to Kansas to live. On August 29, 2011, we were married in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

There were many who said I was crazy and a handful who said to follow my heart. My heart was right.........I am the happiest woman in the world! We live each day enjoying the simple things that life has to offer. I have learned that there are never any guarantees in life and I don't want to be a spectator in life. Call it what you like...........Greg and I were meant to be!
