Today is our...........

6th Wedding Anniversary!

6 years ago today, Scott and I had the most beautiful wedding. We had so many family and friends there to help us celebrate. Every single one of my extended family was there - it was the first time we had all been together since my grandma had passed away back in the summer of 2000. It was so unbelievably special to me.

Here is how our story began...

One weekend, back in May of 1998, I was home at my parents from college (Chico State). It was pretty late at night, after 11:00 or so and I was playing around on their computer. At the time I had AOL and up popped an instant message from someone that I had never met. I enjoyed chatting with people, so we started talking. Turns out, the someone was a drunk Scott who had just gotten home from the Bear and was looking to talk to some chick - that's how he puts it. We chatted that Friday night for quite awhile and again Saturday night. I drove back to Chico on Sunday and we talked some on the phone during the week. Thursday May 14th was our first official date, even if it was just him coming over and us watching the Seinfeld Series Finale.

Scott was just finishing up his degree in Liberal Studies and then he entered the credential program. He completed that in May of 1999 and we moved in together right afterwards. I was STILL in school, getting my degree in Child Development, meanwhile Scott got on every school districts substitute teacher list and subbed for the next year, until I graduated in May of 2000. We were both hired by the North Sacramento School District right after my graduation. We moved to Rocklin in July of 2000 and started our teaching careers.

During the summer of 2001, we took a road trip up to Montana to visit my family. Along the way, in Coeur d'Alene Idaho Scott got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. The wedding planning then began and here is what happened on one of the most special days in my life.
