Let me tell you a story...
On the last evening of a weekend seminar, five young people who were friends decided to go get some pie afterwards at a restaurant. Sitting on either side of the table, the two oldest began having a "discussion" on the subject of courtship. Differing oppinions were exchanged and challenges were brought to the table. (However, both did enjoy the pie!) Soon, it was time to gather everyone's things and hit the road...the young lady and two of her siblings, the young man and his sibling, driving in opposite directions back home. That night, the young man told his father that, "I pity the guy who gets her for a wife!" She must have shared his sentiments, because on different occasions she had told her family that she could, "Never marry a guy like him! He drives me nuts!"
Well, all that took place five years ago...and now, we're celebrating the first wedding anniversary of my brother and his wife! *smile* (October 6th, 2007 to be exact!) As my dad so wisely told Griff, "There's a fine line between love and hate". Griff and Bek officially began courting in December of 2006, and were engaged in February 2007. They are now keeping house in a nice, little apartment and expecting their first little one this coming January.
Congratulations, Griff & Bek!! We love you!
