I love so many different things about Erika. In the couple weeks she was in Brazil, she threw herself headlong into the project of learning to surf and I was completely bowled over by her beauty, intelligence and sense of adventure. When I was thinking of becoming an ostrich farm owner, she never hesitated in supporting me and I loved her more for her willingness to see past short-term creature comforts and her desire to dream with me. When my mom got really sick, Erika helped with everything from cooking to doing long days at the hospital - I was grateful for her warmth and patience, calmness and dedication. The road is long, but I take life's greatest comfort in knowing that in Erika, I have the perfect partner for both good times and bad.

Bowen has a drive and ambition like I've never seen before. It has pushed him to accomplish great things, in his education, career, pursuits to make a difference in the world get the girl! As our friendship evolved, I truly felt courted the old fashioned way. He sweet-talked me into coming to Brazil after only 1 week of dating and completely swept me off my feet. Our mutual love for travel, adventure, success, family and friends have brought us even closer. I am so lucky to be marrying my best friend and the love of my life. I am so excited to start the next chapter of our lives together as husband and wife.

Bowen was frantic, shoving "clothes" into Erika's purse (including the RING which was
inside a sock). Erika thought he was being a tad over protective of our bathing suits, but
didn't think much of it. While Erika was unloading her purse, she asked Bowen what
was in the sock? She was so tired she didn't follow up and he wiggled out of it. This
close call prompted Bowen to pop the question that night!
