Dan & Kenzie - About Us!

Ironic that I'm writing our Love Story on the day of our "First Date Anniversary"! (Happy Anniversary to me and the Hubby today).

I was at work: I was 18, a Senior in High School...I was wild, crazy, and totally care-free. As I was day-dreaming out the window, waiting for my next customer, I saw that bright white plumbing van pull into the Bank parking lot, as it did every Friday around 4:00. As my heart started pounding, I quickly fixed my hair and slapped on some light pink lip gloss. Minutes later, here walks in my tall, skinny, covered in filth "Prince Charming". As he walked up to the empty Teller window, I quickly rushed to help him (customer service at it's finest). We made our usual flirty, Friday small-talk, and talked about what each of us had planned for the weekend. But that day was different...he ended the conversation with a smooth, cool, "Maybe I'll see ya around..." Yeah right, I could only WISH. After all, he was too cute to not have a girlfriend, right? That very night, I got a phone call from a mutual friend of ours. Dan was with him, got on the phone and asked me out on a date for the following night. I was SO excited. The next night, he took me out to dinner...and well, the rest is history. We've been attached at the hip ever since. We're two qwirky, laid-back, 20-somethings who are obsessed with our 4 kids (DOGS), and as happy now as we have ever been! We got hitched on May 1, 2009. Live in Indianola, IA. Dan is a Master Plumber & I work in the banking industry as a Mortgage Loan Service Specialist. We have 4 dogs - A Beagle named Frank, 2 Chihuahua's named Beans & Barney, and a Boston Terrier named Sig.


  1. Happy Anniversary. Love the photo, I like to put names and faces together.

  2. I agree with Stephanie- it is nice to put the faces with the names! Even I don't know everyone who is participating, so I am excited to see them get posted. I really like your story, Kenz! It makes me laugh to think that more than one romance started from gals working at that bank waiting for their Romeos to come through on payday!

  3. That is a neat story! Happy late Anniversary :). Wow, 4 dogs! I love their names, how cute.


Thanks for sharing!
