Johnna's Wedding

 Long ago in 2001 when we first moved to Nashville, Brian was teaching 8th grade and coaching co-ed soccer.  During that time, I was sort of a team helper -- especially when it came to the girls on the team.  It was then that we met John'na.  At the time she was a disorganized tween smart enough to be at a magnet school and tough enough to beat up the boys. 

She loved going to bookstores with me (even though she wouldn't admit it at the time and "can't remember" this now).  She and her brother would come over and swim in the pool at our apartment complex and play board games on our kitchen table.  She graduated high school, then college, and is now working on finishing her M.A. in social work.  A couple years ago, while we were driving west to visit family, she asked us to stop through Jackson, TN, where she lives, and meet a guy she was dating.  We stopped at the IHOP and met them and were blown away by how professional, smart, mature, and funny he was.  Darryl is an engineer and now -- according to some early marital feedback -- a fantastic, considerate, and fun husband. 

We got the boys all dressed up for the event, which -- in typical John'Na style -- was a little late in getting started.  It was during the "waiting period" that I snapped most of these photos.

We are so happy for them! Congratulations again, Mr. and Mrs. W!
