This is the story of Jeffery Alan Carstens and Katie Jane Taylor. They met about 3 years ago at work, Borders and Books and Katie was Jeff's boss. I remember my son telling me Katie was the sweetest girl he had ever met. I knew then that she was the "ONE"! Although I believe she had to fire him! LOL!
Last October they moved to Columbus Ohio as my son got a job there. This not only broke my heart, but Katie's Mom too. We both have always had them close to us and they were both such a joy in our lives. Katie loves the band U2, so in the midst of moving they stopped in Atlanta, where during the concert, when they were playing the song," I still haven't found what I'm looking for," my son got down on one knee, and proposed, telling Katie, he had found exactly what he was looking for. By the way my son hates U2, but it is Katie's favorite band! She accepted. Such a little romantic, my son is. He had the ring for 7 months and kept it a secret from all of us! So they have been planning the wedding for a year.
Last Saturday they became man and wife. They are so in love. It is awesome, and now we have another wonderful daughter and Mary and Bill have a wonderful new son! They wrote their own vows and got married here where we live on Ft. Myers Beach, Fl. This is not only where I grew up, but them as well. The ceremony was beautiful as well as the reception alot of fun. They then went to San Francisco for their honeymoon, as they know only too well about hurricane season in Florida and the Carribean!
Both families are so happy that our children found each other and meshed into one big happy family!
Congratulations, Jeff and Katie! You both have so enriched our lives! By the way we already have a granddaughter. Her name is Lucy and she is a mini boxer! LOL!
