Joe and Loren
Oh my word, these two. What goofballs and genuine souls to be around. I got to hang out with these cool people all stinkin’ day and found myself in love with them. Their day was super chill, full of fun, and filled with respect for their occupation they have chosen for their life.
This was from Loren and I literally can NOT leave it out of their blog, lol.
“Joe and Loren are both Firefighters for neighboring departments who were scheduled to work a detail together for an area event. That stormy morning, Loren recognized Joe as he walked into the work detail. As graceful as Loren can be, we are sure you’d be surprised to read that, she then proceeded to get nervous, pretend to stare at her phone, and immediately walk into a wooden post.
The morning brought some wicked weather, and Loren went back to work at the station. As fate would have it, her crew was called back to this detail several times throughout the day, where she kept seeing Joe. Loren likes to remind Joe that her first impression of him involved Joe letting go of a gate that he was holding so that her truck could exit the premises. A rain cloud quickly moved over and a torrential downpour commenced.
Joe ran back to his truck for coverage so that he wouldn’t mess up his perfectly spiked hairdo. As he wiped the water from his face, he looked up to see the gate had swung closed. He noted a very rain-soaked Loren opening the gate for herself so that her crew could leave. As he watched Loren get back into the truck, he thought that his chances had washed away in the rain. It turns out that wasn’t the end of things, it was only the beginning. Joe and Loren have been inseparable since that day and are looking forward to many more years of embarrassing stories.”
