Beautiful People- March/One Year Edition

The moment I saw that this month's questions was meant for a couple, in staying with So She Dances, there was only one couple I knew I could possibly consider doing! Ms. Katelyn Lewis and Mr. David Bradford! :-)
(Oh! Before I begin, in case anyone has been interested in seeing some of So She Dances, a few snippets have been included in my March Snippets of Stories post. ;-)
As always, you can find out more about these posts here. Now, on with this special edition of Beautiful People!

Part 1:

1. Do they believe in anything that most people think is impossible?  That a bilateral amputee can dance, and dance well.

2. Are they strong, or the "damsel/knight in distress" sort? They are a strong couple, and neither are the "distress" sort individually, nor are either over bearing individually.

3. Do they have a special place? (e.g. a corner in his/her bedroom, under a tree...) Well....there's a somewhat hidden little fountain in the corner of the park. That's where they like to go to talk and just enjoy being together.

4. What occupation do they have, or plan on having?  Well, he is a dance instructor, and she is the piano player at his classes plus teaches home economics for any students (home schooled, public schooled, Christian schooled, or whatever) that are interested in participating.

5. Describe their current place of residence.  He has a house of his own that he bought during his first marriage. It's small, but nice, and decorated in a mix of modern and country garden (thanks to Katelyn's influence). She shares a townhouse with a couple other girls who are also teachers.

6. Explain their last crisis. How had they changed when they came out of it?  The last crisis....hmm. I'd say it was when David got an offer to teach for two years at a dance school in a town just outside Paris. He didn't want to go, afraid a long distance relationship would be the kiss of death for them, but she didn't want him to miss  out on such an important opportunity. Eventually, he worked it out with the school to only teach during the summer. He changed by learning to open the door to opportunity and not fear distance in relationships, and she changed by learning not to push him into something he doesn't like the sound of.

7. If they could drive any kind of car they wanted, what would it be?  He would want some sort of fancy sports car, like a Ferrari. She would want something sensible, like an Impala, or cute, like a VW Bug.

8. How do they deal with change?  He takes it, though a bit grudgingly. Still he makes  the best of the situation and does what he needs to to make it work. She goes with the flow, though, she's not "any way the wind blows" either. She accepts change gracefully.

9. If they had to amputate one body part, which one would they choose?  o.O Oh my goodness! You had to ask that! You just had to ask that! Excuse me while I crack up at the irony of that question with this book and my life! :-D  Ahem... Of course, if they had a choice, they would choose the appendages that would not affect their jobs as much. Therefore, he would choose and arm, and she would choose a leg.

10. What would their favorite be at the local coffee shop? His would probably be a double shot espresso with a little sugar. She prefers tea, so she would probably get a chai latte.   

Part 2:

1. How did they meet?  She was assigned the pianist for one of the other teachers at his dance school, after answering a job ad in the newspaper.

2. How do these two deal with conflict?  If they need to, they wait until they've cooled off, then they pray and  talk it out. And they keep working on whatever the conflict is until all is well again.

3. Do they have a special song, phrase, item, or place?  Nocturne No. 2, no, no, the hidden fountain at the park.

4. What kind of things do they like to do together?  They like to take walks, ride bikes, go on picnics, and have quiet reading time together. They also like to do things like going to movies, swing dance nights, and drives. Really, there's a lot they like to do together, even if it not both of their top interests, they just like to be together. :-)

5. Describe their relationship as a whole in 3 words, or less.  Strong and Steady (that counts as one.....right?), Loving, Gentle.

this story sounds like a sweet romance, I can see it in film, it seems like that kind of story. Good luck with it.
