I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

Will you marry me?

It was a sunny day recently when instead of waiting for Steve to come in from the car after work, I decided to greet him on the front step. Imagine my surprise when I was greeted with not only my husband of almost 15 years but also with this lovely bouquet of flowers. What was the occasion?

It was the anniversary of the day he proposed 15 years ago. Not only does he remember our anniversary every year but also the day he made the decision to ask me to marry him. What a guy!

This picture was taken a couple of years ago by on of our kids at the very spot he asked.

He said that he asked from this lookout because it was symbolic of the meeting of our two lives. From this place you can see the ocean for miles that he loves as well as the mountains that I love.

I don't need flowers to know he loves me but this gesture meant so much to me, was the best surprise and made me smile all week long.
