How it all began...

Our story is one that is not so common. It all started about 8 years ago. I was 19 and he was 20. I was waiting for my enlistment in the US Air Force to begin when out of pure boredom I decided to check out some Christian dating websites. I had no intention of actually meeting my future husband online but the idea seemed romantic enough. I had time to kill so...I started a free trial membership for Enter GOD's plan...we met online June 6th 2002. By July 2003, we met in person Josh met my family and friends and knew we wanted to be together forever. We were crazy in love. In October 2002 I flew to FL to meet Josh's parents and left for Basic Training a week later. On Valentines day 2003 Josh and his parents drove to TX so Josh and I could say "I do". It was a very humble wedding...just Josh and I along with his parents and a few of my fellow trainees. Our wedding day was the third time we had actually seen eachother in person. Practically our entire courtship was long distance filled with countless phone conversations, letters, and emails. It has been 7 years since that day and we are even more in love than we were back then. We have certainly had our fair share of tough times, but I wouldn't trade any of them. It was all part of GOD's plan. I am starting this blog to document our journey along the way.


  1. Wow, Nadine, that is such a neat story! That's just the kind of wedding I wanted, but my husband is more of a people person, so we met in the middle and had something a little bit bigger. I love the idea of just having a small, simple wedding. Thanks for sharing your story. :)

    Love your background! :)

  2. I teared up a romantic. :-) I was just your bratty little sister back then!

  3. Wow, what a great story you two have! Thanks for giving me your new blog address. So pretty...
