Lori and Kenneth
Sense of humor, wit, intellect, athleticism, charm, beautiful blue eyes, and an inviting smile! I actually thought it was all too good to be true, but thanks to some prodding from my daughter, I met Ken for the first time in person on March 6, 2005! Our half hour agreement for drinks soon turned into a three hour lunch with a lot of laughs...and interest on both sides! A "real date" for dinner soon followed. Romance soon blossomed! We enjoyed each others company!
We traveled to the wine country of California, white water rafting in West Virginia, and to the beaches of Aruba! More importantly, we played games, cooked and rented movies for quiet evenings at home. On Christmas Day, 2006, Ken asked me to close my eyes for one more present. When I opened my eyes, he was down on one knee with a black box balanced on the palm of his hand! He proposed! I accepted! We planned a beautiful beach wedding at our favorite vacation spot, Palm Beach, Aruba! Our wedding was lovely and everything we both wanted! We happily live in a revitalized area of St. Louis in our 120 year old Victorian Home. Life could not be better!
