Paul and I met online and had very good chemistry and conversations which led us to our very first date on November 14th, 2005. We met for dinner at La Fonda in Atlanta, and he surprised me with a hilarious evening at the Punchline. We had a great time, and found we had more and more in common as time passed!
I came into the relationship with two sweet, but quite often overly vocal Siamese Cats, Tula and Sophi. They are very sweet and loving cats, but are unlike most cats in that they are the most needy pets you could ever imagine! They can’t get enough of me!
And a couple months before Paul and I got engaged we added another family member, CHUNK! Paul and I happened upon this adorable dachshund puppy while partying with friends in Helen, GA. And while the decision was made while intoxicated, neither of us would regret it for one minute! Chunk has been the best dog we could ever imagine, so sweet, obedient, and loving! And he and the cats actually get along ok! So, we were engaged 4 years from the day we met and married around our 5 year anniversary on November 13th, 2010. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and memorable wedding celebration! We were able to celebrate with all our family and friends on a gorgeous day in November and while all the planning was a challenge, we would do it all again in a heartbeat!
This year we (2013) we made a new addition to the family with our little miracle Liam – our first-born and pride and joy! He had a rough start in life as you can read about in our post BABY LIAM: 260 Hours to Home. He is now 6 months old and exceeding our expectations and surprising us daily with his energy, personality and drive to explore and learn.
Now we now a happy little family of 4, just enjoying life, Husband, Wife, Chunk Master and Baby Man!
