The Wes: Unplugged Intro

OK!!! FINE!!! I'll jump on the blogwagon. Today I start my blog. I did not decide to start a blog out of boredom, but out of my wife's (Melissa) amazing honesty and courage today. She blogged about the most intimate challenge we have ever faced, and received so much encouragement in return. I Love You!

This picture was taken in the deep mountains of Mexico, where I proposed to my awesome wife. We were so far out that the people stopped speaking Spanish, and started to speak Indian (Mayan?). I had been carrying the ring for 2 weeks in my backpack, waiting for the right moment. The moment had come the day after we held dental cleanings for the locals, and we're preparing to hike down the mountain (the night before the road had washed out). We were all in a circle, and I was about to pray for everyone when I walked over to my best friend, knelt down and asked "WILL YOU MARRY ME?".

We have been married for 7 short years, and I can't believe the adventures we have been on. She is my Sherpa to Success, and I would be lost without her.
