How did we get here?

Well, it all started in the Summer of 2002.  We have our dear friend Robb to thank.  Robb had been begging Crystal to go to church with him and Joshua.  After much persuading, she finally gave in.  Crystal and Joshua met on June 5 2002.  We started dating that August. For several months, we had an on-and-off relationship (Joshua's fault). But after hearing God tell him (twice) that Crystal was the one he was supposed to marry, Joshua finally made the relationship "on again" and made it stick.

On January 8, 2004, when Crystal came home from a hard day at work, she was told, by the people she was staying with at the time, to take a shower and get ready to go out for the evening. All she wanted to do was to take a shower and go to bed, but she complied. Joshua showed up and took her out to dinner at Gambardella's. After she ordered her dessert (a slice of chocolate cake), Joshua went and talked to the waitress. When the waitress came back with the cake, there was a diamond studded ring sticking out of the cake near the top of the slice. Joshua asked Crystal to marry him, and she, through tears, said yes.

And thus began those crazy months of wedding invitations, and colors, and guests. It was one of the shortest 6 month timespans of our life! We got married on June 14 2004 (picture gallery coming soon). It's been a wonderful trip.
