Chris and I met on July 4, 2010, when Susan Snider introduced them at the Clinton 4th of July Fireworks celebration. As their eyes met for the first time, Heather's heart fluttered with excitement and fireworks went off early in the evening for them both. Neither of them had any idea what was awaiting them: a lifetime of joy and happiness, plus their daughter that was born in January 2012.
We still remember that day very clearly! I asked Susan how tall Chris was, I have this thing about a man being taller than a woman - thankfully he was 6'1". Chris was wondering why is Susan asking this, she has known me since high school. After that, it took a couple of days, but Chris finally friended me on Facebook and then numbers were exchanged as well as many long hours on the phone that went into early morning. Not to mention all the group dates we had in order to get to know each other better before we made that faithful leap to solo dates.
Now, more than a year later - we can't imagine life without each other.
On January 14, 2012, we welcomed our daughter into the world. Cora DeLay Strohm. We love her dearly, can't imagine life without her. She has enriched our love for one another and we are so happy to celebrate our union as a couple and a family.
