We met on a blind date in December 2002. Neither of us was very interested in going, but our mutual friends wanted someone to go with them. We both have sassy attitudes and enjoyed giving each other a hard time the whole night. At the end of the night, Doug boldly asked Joyce for her phone number and asked if he could call her again, of course she said he could. The rest is history. We were engaged in February of 2003, and married in June 2003.
