(Our Story as posted on our Wedding Website)

In March of 2008, the “DTR” finally came. (Defining the Relationship) James called Monday and they talked for an hour as they did every week, catching up on life. James called Tuesday, a little out of the ordinary since they’d talked Monday.
When James called Wednesday afternoon, Malia knew something was changing. He said, “When I called the other night you said you’ve missed me. I realized then that we could either stay friends or move forward, and before you answer, I want you to know that I’m hoping for the latter.” Malia said she agreed.
The long distance courtship had begun. James made it clear he was in it for the long haul.
