DMP left almost immediately for Army ROTC summer camp. I got a job and planned a wedding; I was not one of those girls who had spent her entire life planning a wedding, until I met DMP I was not even sure that I intended ever to be married. We chose the Saturday of Labor Day weekend because it was convenient for me to get at least one day off work, he would have a long weekend from grad school, and our siblings who were all in school would be able to come. The wedding would have to be in Houston and, indeed, we wanted it there so that our Rice friends could conveniently be with us. Our decision was reflective of several things that have defined our lives: (1) Houston is our home, (2) Central is our church, (3) our friends are as dear to us as our family, (4) Rice is important to us.
