I'm proud to announce the marriage of Marti and Dave Murray

A lot has happened over the past few months, from another near layoff to near bankruptcy, but one thing has remained constant through all of this turmoil, Martha Basaca Woody. Martha, (Marti), and I were married on March 13th, 2010. A little over two years of dating and a rollercoaster of life events, Marti and I endured the true test of relationships, staying together regardless through some very trying times, and still respecting one another after surviving them.

Marti agreed to marry me on Dec. 19th, 2008. But, due to economic circumstances, we decided to push out the marriage date until things improved for the both of us. Five months of unemployment, a few odd jobs, and salvaging our house from foreclosure later, we made it to our joyous day!

I won't lie and tell everyone that Marti got the best fish in the sea, I'm impulsive, excessive, and stubborn at times, but Marti knows this, knows how to reach me, and has chosen to stick with me through the hard times. For this, I will always love her. And for this, I will always stand by her side. She is truly the rock in our marriage. My new reason for being... And we're very happy together.

Wish us luck on our new journey, although I already know the outcome will be fabulous.
