Deevo Tindall - Saturday, April 13, 2013

How they met... We met at Ballantyne Country Club but lost touch when I took another job. We reconnected when I starting working at the club again about six months later. We started hanging out with our work group of friends and quickly realized we had a lot in common. We started hanging out more and more just the two of us and became best friends. We started dating on Todd's 20th birthday (11-11-08) and got engaged on February 13, 2010. The first date was held at the Melting Pot.

The first date... It was the day before Valentines Day and Todd and I were just hanging out at the house. He said he was going to run out and get my Valentines Day gift and card. I was reading a text book for school so didn't pay too much attention when he got back from the store about 45 minutes later. He was gone for such a short time it seemed like he had done exactly what he said he was going to do (Little did I know that he and his mom had been working on this for days). He said hey to me and then said he had gotten the dogs new collars, which I didn't think anything of since we got them new 'necklaces' all the time. He put them on the dogs and told me to call them to me so I could see them. The dogs ran to me, and I notice a box tied onto Ginger's collar. I bent down to grab it and when I did Todd got on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I said YES!

My take... Dana and Todd are the kind of couple you see 40 years from now all grayed out and wrinkly enjoying an ice-cream cone in the park sitting on a park bench in the shade (bc Dana now lives in the south, she'll probably have a bonnet on). The kind you go "oh how cute". They just get each other. It's funny to watch them finish each other's thoughts and only laugh at each other's jokes. It's cute how they both share the same sarcasm and wit and use it on each other frequently. I am looking forward to the next chapter in their lives as they embark on a new journey together - that sounded like it came straight outta the Successories magazine didn't it?

the first look can be so emotional and romantic

From the initial meeting to communication, to the wedding, everything was wonderful. Deevo has a quirky personality and it made the whole experience better. My husband didn't really like taking pictures, but I think he enjoyed it because of Deevo.
