During the summer of 2010, Jeff's school was being renovated and his office was torn up, therefore he no longer had access to a computer. He needed to complete many computer tasks before the new school year began, so he decided to go to the district's central office to use a computer. When he arrived, he was given access to a computer at a desk not far from Cara’s desk. When Jeff finished, he and Cara talked for a minute before he went elsewhere in the building to speak with someone else. When he completed that discussion, that person actually referred him back to the business office where Cara worked for more information. Cara helped Jeff with the information he needed and Jeff became more interested in visiting with her.
For the next couple of weeks, Jeff made every excuse possible to go to the district office to meet with somebody so he could catch a glimpse of Cara and chat with her. At the same time, Cara began to notice his visits and she and her friends would talk about him. They also told her when Jeff had been there if she was out of the office.
School was about to begin and Jeff was feeling the pressure to get things going with Cara, because once school started he wouldn't be able to get away as frequently. So, at the beginning of the year convocation, Jeff purposely stood where Cara would have to pass by him and they were able to visit for a few moments before the festivities took place. Later that afternoon, Jeff knew that he needed to act quickly since school was starting in two days. He called her on her work phone. She answered thinking he was calling just to chat with some made up question again, but he went straight to asking her out. Jeff was nervous, both because of how smitten he was and because he had just taken the 'sexual harassment' training. When he asked Cara out, he qualified it with “you can say no if you want”. Fortunately, she said yes, and kept saying yes!
As of their third anniversary Jeff and Cara are expecting their first child in December of 2014!
"God is very good!" Jeff
