Amelia and Aaron are my favorite. I knew this before I met them because I frequently told random people their story. And then I would cry. They have one of the best stories I’ve ever heard. Ever. Here it is in Amelia’s words right after they found out she was getting deployed: I went home […]

Where should I begin? First, I suppose I’ll shake hands with Amanda, congratulating her on a Cowboy’s victory over the Redskins. [We’ll get you next time.] Diron and Amanda were friends. They served together with Intervarsity. They enjoyed football together. They enjoyed a mug of beer together. They were friends. But I’m not sure either […]

I met Cheka and Michael outside the Ronald Reagan Building on the corner of 13th and Penn. I had to follow my google maps and ask a few security guards to point me in the right direction. [I’m so not a city girl.] I knew I’d be looking for a girl in a party dress, […]

I drove north to Harper’s Ferry to meet Claudia and TR for engagement photos. I think I might have been to Harper’s Ferry a long long time ago? Maybe? I definitely don’t remember it being this stinking cute! Everywhere you turn there is something to take a photo of. Thanks for suggesting the location, Claudia! […]
