Shannon Lee

Our infamous how-we-met story isn't very glamorous. I was moving out of the folks' home. I had just graduated from high school, and some buddies and I had rented our first apartment together. We were excited, enthusiastic, and clueless. Not to mention car-less, so one of them sent over a friend with a car to help me move my stuff.

Soon he pulled up into my parents driveway. He was driving a tiny red hatchback car. We introduced each other, he loaded up my few belongings in his car, and warned me as I got in... "be careful, the floorboard's missing in spots."

He never left the apartment. We went to record and comic shows together. We enjoyed the same music and interests in nature. Never mind that he was 10 years older than me. Or half a foot shorter. Or that everyone thought we wouldn't last long.

As anyone can see from these pictures, we were soon expecting our first child. Not wanting to upset my family anymore than they already were, we got married. I was seven months pregnant, so my dress was the only maternity one we could find. I made the veil myself. We wed at my parents house, and rented a hall for our reception.

We have been married over 20 years now. Sure, we've had bumps along the way, but it's been worth it!
