met my wife Alayna in Las Vegas over 12 years ago. The story of how we met and our whirlwind courtship leading up to our engagement is a classic, but I will spare you the details for another time. Once I decided that I was going to pop the question, I wanted to call her dad John to ask permission for her hand in marriage. Alayna is Canadian, from Vancouver, BC, but her mother Diane lived in Scottsdale Arizona at the time. John still lived in Vancouver and him and I hadn’t yet met in person. I did however, manage to get his number and secretly called him a week or so before I planned to bend down on one knee. He was super excited and granted me his permission and the rest as they say is history. Or is it?
