Santa's Engagement Surprise!
For those of you who don't know, our love story started 19 years ago. I was 15, Jack was 17 and we caught each other's eye in the hallway at our hometown high school. Teenagers in love, we dated off and on for a few years before Jack moved away to Winnipeg. I continued to pine for him and as we got older, we stayed in touch with bursts of dating during the summers I was back from University. Call it age, call it bad timing, call it immaturity, but we never quite got it together...
Fast forward 10 years later, after I had spent my years working and going to school in Ottawa, Churchill, London England and Calgary....I found myself back in Winnipeg. I came across a newspaper article about a hardwood flooring company owned by a couple of young entrepreneurs and there he was in the grainy black and white photo. I held onto that article for months...then finally sent the friendly email. That was two and a half years ago and the rest is, as they say, history!
