Valentine’s Love

It’s Saturday and time again for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun! It is also the day before Valentine’s day and there is a ‘Valentine’s Day Challenge’ going around Facebook.

Mike and I met while attending Kansas State Teachers College in Emporia, Kansas. I’m not sure when we first met. It was sometime during our sophomore year when we were both chemistry lab assistants and also in a class together. We became engaged on Valentine’s Day during our junior year and were married after graduation. We will be celebrating our 48th year of marriage this May.
