13 years ago, I said, “yes”

Beach 1999 001


In 1999, I met my husband Glenn. This is a photo taken shortly after we met. We were involved in a Christian group on the campus of UNCC where we attended. He was a freshman and I was a sophomore. I was his small group leader and this was a photo taken at a beach retreat that fall.

March 2000 001


Another photo taken that fall.


Glenn and Ruth woods 001We soon started spending a lot of time together. This is us hiking in the mountains.


Glenn's car 001This photo was taken in Glenn’s car, at the time. It was a 1985 Caprice that was his grandfather’s at one time. I love this picture. Such a candid moment.

Winter 2000 001This is us visiting my mom in Winston-Salem. We got snowed in while we were there. The funny thing about this photo is that Glenn still wears this coat. Maybe it’s time for a new one….


Wedding smile 001Then on March 17,2001, he asked me to marry him and I said, Yes! We got marred four months later on July 22.


Wedding kiss 001


wedding leaving 001Getting pelted by rice! We were young, just 20 and 21, but I wouldn’t change a thing. We have grown up together and it has been the best thing. It was the best decision we ever made.
