I grew up on a 250 acre farm 90 miles south of St. Louis in Ste. Genevieve county. My dad was a farmer and my mom taught special education grade 12 at Ste. Genevieve High School. I used to help my dad make hay and was always a daddy's girl
My Dream Wedding
My dream wedding came to life when my fiance surprised me with a text of will you marry me after dating for four months in July 2016 on my best friend's cell phone. I immediately texted him yes. My best friend was in a nursing home recovering from an infection. She had no idea that I was dating someone both of us had met in December 2015. My future fiance's dad and my dad knew each other. I immediately started planning for the wedding even though it was not to take place for two years until August 4th, 2018. One month later I had a second proposal from my fiance in person in an unusual way in the bathroom when I was washing my hands. Of course I said yes. One day I had a surprise from my best friend as she found my bridal magazines and notes for the wedding as I never told her about my future wedding. She was quite upset about it but was okay with the wedding when I told her that she was going to be my maid of honor and would still live with us. My fiance had been sleeping at my apartment to help me take of Barb my best friend who was unable to walk. Time passed by fast and before I knew it was 2017. Early that year, Barb became terminally ill from pancreatic cancer and after 16 days in the icu died. Of course I was devastated as we were friends for 30 years.
