About Us

Proposal

Ally woke me up on Valentine's Day 2016 very very early, 6am! She was wearing her Valentine's Day hat she made at school, so I knew I had to wake up. When I got out of bed Ally held my hand through a walkway of rose pedals all the way downstairs.

Mike was standing there as Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love is" was playing (now our wedding song). At this point I thought he was being romantic I wasn't expecting a proposal.

He got down on one knee (as Ally was giggling) and read me this poem he wrote...

No one else’s words can say,

How much I love more and more each day.

Your laugh, your smile, your heart of gold,

I hope you still love me when we turn old.

In this world of fools and mend,

You are my trust, you are my friend.

I hope our hands will stay clutched tight,

You are my courage you are my might.

But if one day you take my hand,

I promise to never let you land,

Without my heart next to you.

I promise my love I’ll always be true.

So with this ring please keep my light,

You are my fire you are my might.

From now to eternity please be my bride,

Because you are my strength, you are my pride.

I said yes as I was crying almost hystrically, but it doesn't end there!

Mike went to Ally, got down on one knee and asked "Ally, can I be your Daddy?"

Ally said yes, and he put a ring on her finger too! Ally keeps this ring in a special spot and she's never lost it (yet).

After wiping my tears and a big family hug, I called my mom and dad. They knew it was coming.....

The previous day Mike was busy calling my ENTIRE family. He sat down with both my parents face to face. He called my older brother, Mike, in Hawaii, then my little brother, Jeff, at Iowa State (apparently Jeff was the tough one), then he called my little sister, Karen. Most importantly he asked the permission of my mother- in- law Judy (or Grammie), the mother of my late husband, permission as well. This was a beautiful expression of his love for me and our family.

The song says it all... "In my life there's been heartache and pain, I don't know if I can face it again...

Can't stop now, I've traveled so far, to change this lonely life. I want to know what love is, I want you to show me.

I want to feel what love is, I know you can show me."

Ally and I are so blessed and we are excited to walk down the aisle (sand) together to meet Mike at the alter and become a family!
