We met in 1994 and agreed to a long-distance relationship on August 22, 1994. After 21 years, Burt proposed on our trip to Sweden in June of 2016 and a week later, same-sex marriage became legal in the United States. What a joyous time! We are going to be married on the family property that Burt's grandfather purchased in the 1950's. There have been many many family memories created on that property and it seemed very fitting to get married there too. We hope that the memory of our special day adds to the list of great times with family and friends that we have been blessed with having at "the lake".
