"Welcome to the Family"


On January 24th of this year I had the great pleasure of marrying the man, (and the Marine), of my dreams! He's stationed at MCBH Kaneohe Bay, and I couldn't be more excited about moving there in two weeks. We had a nice, small wedding with a few of his closest fellow Marines at Hale Koa Beach on base. The minute I saw Jordan I knew I was going to spend the rest of my life with him. November 7th, 2008 was our first date…(yes, that's right, we only dated for two and a half months before we got married…) But like the say, when you know…you know! The moment his Sergeant slapped me on the butt with that sword and said "Welcome to the Family" has definitely been one of the proudest moments of my life. I couldn't be happier standing by his side as a member in the Marine Corps family!!

For richer, for poorer,
In good times and bad,
Semper Fi!
