Three years ago, I married my college sweetheart, Paul, but our story starts Fall Semester at Lindenwood in 2003.
I met Paul through the music organization at Lindenwood University. He was a jazz drummer and I was a choir girl. One evening after a musicale that the women’s group put on, Paul, Lena, Jeff and I went down to the Riverfront to enjoy the weather/evening. One by one, Jeff left and then Lena and Paul and I found ourselves not ready to call it a night. We were enjoying each other’s company too much. We talked and talked on that bench until, much to my surprise, the sun began to rise over the horizon. I drove him to his morning class and as he got out of the car, he chucked a note at me and ran off to his class. The note said, “I wanted to kiss you all night”.
A little over a year later, he proposed to me on that very same bench by the riverfront and we were married June 2, 2005.
I Love You Sweet Love!
