The Date October 1
As the coxswain for the men’s novice crew team in college, Willi Evans had to sit face-to-face with crew member Jon Galloway every day. “Apparently, he didn’t mind that my job was to boss him around!” she says. They had their first date on October 1, 1998, and were married exactly seven years later, after a romantic proposal. Jon surprised her by proposing in a garden by placing the ring box in the center of a heart made out of rose petals.
