I met Nic almost 8 years ago when we worked at the same camp during the summer. We became instant friends. Nic was still in high school at the time and I was in college. Over the years we have been able to maintain a great friendship even though we live miles apart and only see each other about once a year. We kept in contact as we both went through big milestones in our lives – graduations, jobs and even marriage. I remember receiving a phone call from Nic a few years ago when he said he started hanging out more with a girl named Tamara. He told me how beautiful she was and how he really wanted to get to know her more. I found out later that they had started dating. I heard bits and pieces about their relationship as it started to grow closer and stronger. I then started receiving the phone calls from Nic saying that there was talk of marriage. Soon after he was looking for a ring. And asking her dad’s permission. The phone call finally came before Christmas saying that they had made it official and they are getting married!
