The Beginning

Glen and I were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend. Our first date was at the Velvet Dog Martini Bar. We both brought friends as our "safety nets" I guess you could say. We had so much in common we both couldn't believe it. Glen asked me that night if I would like to go out with him the following night. Being too nice to say "no" I said "sure." So the following day, I decided that I really didn't want to have a second date. When Glen called, I told him I had unexpectedly had friends in from out of town and that I couldn't go out. That was that. I didn't talk to Glen again for several weeks. A few weeks later I took a trip to San Diego, CA with some of my girl friends and while sitting on the beach I had an epiphany. My girl friends said, at least give him a second try, you never know. So, when I got back from San Diego I called Glen and asked him to a Twins vs. Royals baseball game. I remembered he said he loved the Twins. He said yes to the game. Pretty much, the rest is history. After that second date, we were together all of the time. Glen moved in with me the following summer and a month later we were engaged! After a year of wedding planning we finally got married. It was the best day of our lives.


  1. Meagan, I cannot believe, you almost messed up with not going out with Glen when he asked. I'm so glad you had second thoughts while in CA, because you two are perfect together, and you both compliment each other so well. You will always be strong for each other. Glen is a wonderful son-in-law, and I could not be happier than having Glen in our family.
