Aruba to us is…… Our Love Story

We Met March 2018 at Costa Linda Resort. Jim gave Dawn a birthday kiss on the 20th then the next day a 2nd kiss. Then kissed every morning after that.  We exchanged phone numbers and email addresses.

Back in the USA we had a long distance relationship. We clicked right away and found ourselves talking everyday by phone. We then had our first date in Wisconsin. We knew it was serious and did not want to be apart.

During the past year we became closer and decided to marry on Dawns birthday March 20th, 2019, 1 year after the first kiss.

Our friends and family all came and we married in Aruba in a civil service at the village hall and then to the beach!
