Jr. High School Hallway....1980
Greg and Lori meet for the first time. Lori is 14 and in the 9th grade. Greg is a cool older high-school boy, 16 and in 11th grade. After a few weeks of harmless flirting, Lori is bold enough to ask Greg to the 9th Grade Send Off Dance.......Greg accepts :)
Lori has strict parents and is not allowed to "car date" yet. Greg lives in the next town over. Since this is way before computers or cell phones, Greg and Lori drift apart.
8 miles is a long way when you can not drive.
Out front of Lori's house....May 1982
Lori, 11th grade, sits outside, pretending to play with her dog Suzie, knowing that that beautiful yellow car will be driving by at any minute. Greg, older, graduate, working man, drives past almost daily after dropping a co-worker off from car-pooling. Finally....today is the day!! Greg stops and they talk. A date is set for dinner and a movie.
St. Mary's Catholic Church.....June 8, 1985
Three years later, Lori and Greg are married. Two years later baby Blayne Nicole was born, a year and a half later, Connor Gregory was born.....5 years after, Dominic Brower was born. Our little family is complete, and it all began in a small town, in the hallway of a Jr. High School.....
So......Of course, here is the beginning of our life together.......in pictures :)

"Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life,
love gives us a fairytale."
