The Happy Couple

So, this has nothing to do with food or cooking, but I wanted to blog about the happy couple anyway!  Here is the picture (well, one of many) I took of them a couple of weeks ago when they home for a weekend of engagement parties.



See that handsome young man? That's my son, Jack. And that very pretty young woman beside him is his fiance, Courtney. They  have known each other for almost eleven years, having met at freshman orientation at the university they attended. They were friends throughout college, but never dated. Upon graduation they went their separate ways, Jack ultimately in the Army and Courtney to Seattle where she is a mechanical engineer for Boeing. In October of 2010, Jack was in Seattle with some of his Army friends and called Courtney. They spent one day together before he had to head back to Ft. Bragg, NC. He returned to Seattle one month later and well, as they say, the rest is history!

They have endured not only the separation of the miles across the United States, but a ten month separation while Jack was deployed to the Middle East. Jack proposed to Courtney in July of 2011 while on home leave. What an exciting time!

Never doing anything easy, they are still on opposite coasts planning their wedding. They will be married on September 8 of this year at the Wedding Chapel on Tybee Island, Georgia, near the beautiful city of Savannah.

What a fun it's going to be!
