Delane and Nate Celebrate 10 years of Marriage

And you're welcome.  Because who set them up on a blind date in February, 1994?  This girl!

Nate and I were both attending Reinhardt College at the time.  One day while we were trying to stay awake in Math 102, Nate said something like, "Hey, do you have a sister who looks like you but doesn't have your personality?"

I tend to have that affect on people.

Anyway, as luck would have it, I knew just the girl... my sister, Delane, who had recently broken up with her boyfriend.  Maybe a fun double-date is just what the doctor ordered!

Little did I know that this blind date would become a seven year courtship and a ten year marriage - producing two precious children.   I would have put more money on William Hung winning American Idol in 2003.

To commemorate ten years of marriage, I took some photos of them at the park where Nate proposed, the church where they were married, and the theater where they had their reception.

It was nice to take a stroll down memory lane with them... or in this case, a stroll down East Main Street.

Congratulations, Delane and Nate!  Happy Anniversary!
