So here's the scoop on me and Angie. Angie and I met on October 29, 2004, just a bit more than a month after I returned from my mission. Ya know when you see something you like and you just know that it is gonna be perfect for you for, like, forever? Well, that is what dating and falling in love with Angie was like. She has always been my very best friend from the first time we started dating. I gotta hand it to her, though. Just what on earth was she thinking in taking a chance on a guy like me?! I'm amazed at how lucky I am to have such a wonderful friend and companion by my side, through thick and thin. Not a day goes by where we don't end up laughing with or at one another. She's a talented musician who has helped me to listen to the music all around me and discover the music of the heart. I love her with all of my heart and I am so grateful to know that I may have her for eternity. She's definitely worth it.
So here's the original Team. Mom and Dad adopted me and my little sister when we were little kids and since our adoption, we have been well received and well cared for by the coolest big sister in the entire world. That's the One, the Only, Natasha Alisa Workman Nielsen. She's been married for almost 12 years now and has an awesome husband named Keven (that's right, sis, I still remember how to spell your name and his too... Boo yeah!!) 4 of the craziest and most hilarious kids in the entire world. My younger sister, Andrea was married a month before us to a man that puts a capital "E" in Extreme. Her husband, Jason, has been able to excel in paintballing, skateboarding, snowboarding, and now rock-climbing. Jason is a huge example of just living life. Andrea, my little sister is probably the most genuine and loving girl I could know and call my sister. She just had her first child not too long ago and I gotta hand it to her and her husband: they made a cute kid. Dad is a sermon in a sentance kind of guy. Everything I am, I am because of him. He's an outstanding man with a heart of gold. My mom is probably the most generous person I have ever known. Growing up, she always made sure we had everything we wanted and she has always been so good to us as a mother and a loyal friend. So that's My Family!!!
