The Love Story
“Our story starts when we were in our senior year of High School. We started to date on October 20, 2013. High School with him was fun and easy-going, especially prom. Once we both graduated, we knew it was time to make a decision. I was already taking classes at Joliet Junior College while he was getting packed up to move to Mexico, Missouri for Linn State Technical College. The thought of being so far away from each other stunk, but we decided to stick it out. From me driving 5 hours to see him on weekends to him trying to come home, we managed to keep good grades and spent time together. “Where there’s a will, there’s a way”.
Jordan finally graduated from college after two years and moved back home, the boy was that a relief. Fast-forwarding to when we bought our first house. January 4th, 2018 we moved into our beautiful home in Gardner. We did everything typical homeowners do, bought a new couch, painted the bathrooms, and even built some things. June 2018 was the best month, we welcomed our first puppy, Ellie, a beautiful golden retriever. Then on June 19th, 2018, Jordan got down on one knee and asked for my hand in marriage. I’ll have to say, that was the easiest yes of my life. Since our engagement, we have been busy planning the wedding and working full-time jobs. Cheers to the rest of our years.” – Sarah
