Bill and Chelle met in
September of 1985.
Mom was right!
Bill and Chelle shared their sophomore, junior and senior years, in Sacramento. While we were never more than friends, we did attend two school dance/banquets together.
We graduated in 1988 and went our separate ways.
Throughout the next ten years, Chelle's mom would periodically ask,
"So, do you ever hear from Bill Stafford?" and Bill's mom would ask,
"So, do you ever hear from Chelle Warren?"
For several years in the early 1990's, Chelle & Bill lived less than two miles apart in San Diego... Bill was even a regular visitor at Chelle's neighbor's home, yet we didn't cross paths.
In the Fall of 1998, Chelle's mom came across an alumni website for Capital Christian High School. While Chelle was not registered on the site, Bill was. Chelle got a phone call from Mom.
Today, we share a deep love, a blended family, and a commitment to enjoy the rest of our lives together. Bill has two children: Jeron and Ariel. Chelle has three: Joey, Shiloh and Bethany. Our home is often reminiscent of a circus.
Our wedding (to the relief of
our mothers) will finally take place 20 years after we met:
