Dawn's Story

Life Bryan and I got married on June 22. It was a beautiful ceremony, and the rain held off just long enough for the outdoor ceremony and pictures. We just returned from our honeymoon in Kauai. What an amazing experience. College I wouldn't want to relive the college days. I did it the hard way - on the six year plan. Went to BU for two and a half years before I realized that any subject I was interested in wasn't going to lead to a job I had interest in (though I did manage to get myself into a fair amount of trouble while I was there, so that was worth it).
