Nathan Labunski '05 and Lindy (Morgan) Labunski, '06

The first time I met my husband, Nathan Labunski '05, was at a Pacific Christian Fellowship barbeque in Trombley Square at the beginning of my junior year (his senior year).

I was talking to one of my friends when I noticed this guy looking at me from across the square. I had never seen him before, which is strange for Pacific. Even if you don't know everyone, you've at least seen everyone around campus.


The next thing I knew, he was standing right next to me, introducing himself and asking if I would like to go on PCF's annual raft trip. Having grown up rafting, of course I said yes. After signing me up, he handed me the trip brochure and then told me that he had put his cell phone number on the back, just in case I had any questions. When I asked him later, he admitted that he hadn't given anyone else his number “just in case,” that it was just an excuse to give me his number.


I was so impressed by that gutsy move that I called him as soon as the barbeque was over to ask him if he would like to go to Coldstone with my friends and me. After going on a couple of dates and then losing touch for about five months, we reconnected while walking across campus. It was January and freezing out, but we stood there in front of Marsh Hall talking for over an hour. About a month later, we started seriously dating, and were engaged by June 2005. We got married right after I graduated in June 2006 and still absolutely love telling the story about how we met.
