Kerri and Michael
We Just Knew
Michael and I met on OkCupid in March of 2009. We talked on the phone for about a month and finally decided to meet in April. From the moment we met, I knew that he was different. Our first date was interesting, because there was not a whole lot to do in town so we went to a museum and then to the local dog show. Even though this was one of the cheesiest dates I had ever been on, we just had so much fun together. It was one of the best dates I have ever had.
We continued dating for the next few months. He even drove to the airport, which was really far away, to pick me up from a job interview I had gone to. He was always the sweetest guy any girl could ask for. We soon knew that we were soulmates and he proposed to me on July 3, 2009 at Navy Pier in Chicago. It was so crowded there that he found a secluded room up on the second floor that overlooked the water. We sat down and he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I was so happy!!!!!
I soon finished up my degree and we moved in together while we were planning the wedding. We bought a house in October. We got married on June 19, 2010 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It was a fairytale wedding and the best day of our lives. We left the day after our wedding and honeymooned in Maui, Hawaii for the next week. We now live in our house in Rockford, Illinois and are planning on starting a family in a few years.
