2 years of being a Palmer




On July 3, 2006 I became a Palmer. Jon and I went to Vegas and were married 2 years ago. It was quite the scandalous event.
A little back ground on Jon and I: Jon was married 8 years to his late wife Heidi before she passed away in a car accident. They had Riley and Preston together. I was married for 4 years to my late husband Dana before he passed away in a car accident. Jon and I found each other through a L.D.S. widows and widowers group. I thought we would only be good friends but that lasted 2 dates before we were going crazy not living close to each other. (I was in St.George and he was here in Herriman.) So, I think we went on like 8 more weekend dates and a big Lake Powell trip, before we decided that we could not live without seeing each other every day. We were both sealed to our late spouses, so we decided to make it easy on ourselves and just jet down to Vegas. We let everyone know on the 4th of July. There were fireworks coming out of some of our family’s mouths and ears when we let the cat out of the bag. But, they all got over it. They now realize how perfect Jon, the kids and I fit together. And, any day now we will be adding yet another Palmer to our wonderful family. Someday soon I hope to have a picture that was taken that night in Vegas by my friend Hill. I still have faith that she will come through and send them to me. I would like to thank Paige, Josh, Hill, Russ and Anna for coming along, being our witnesses, and for your wonderful attitudes that made the night even more fun! With out you guys it would never have been as crazy and fun as it was! Viva Las Vegas baby!

Oh my gosh, that night was so much fun. Remember the following Powell trip when we celebrated your 'scandalous union'? Good times!

I didn't know about your dash to Vegas-too fun and sporatic. I bet fireworks were coming from your fam when they found out.
