We met through mutual friends in 2009, while attending North Carolina State University (Go Pack!). Within a week, we were dating. Within a month, we knew it would last forever. We are a young, easy going, active, energetic couple that love to try new things and do almost everything together. We truly are each other’s best friends.
In 2011, Joe surprised Casey with a “staycation.” We went to dinner, the symphony, and then to a hotel room lled with photos of all of our adventures together. As
if planned, Casey said “I could do this forever,” and
to his surprise, Joe pulled a ring out of his pocket and proposed. Casey said yes, and we got married in 2012 in front of friends in family in New York.
We bought our rst home together on a quiet street in a neighborhood outside the city of Raleigh. We look forward to taking walks and playing in the backyard with our child and dog, Kiko. Cuddling up on the theater room couch for movie night is something we often talk about.
We can’t wait to let our child stay up past bedtime to drive around to see the Christmas lights and help decorate our 7 trees! We are just a short drive to the downtown area and can’t wait to visit the Farmer’s Market, the festivals the city puts on, and take advantage of the many entertainment options as a family.
When Joe was in high school, he won the award for ‘Friendliest’. Anyone who meets him can quickly see why. He always has a smile on his face and is always thinking of ways to make those around him smile. It’s his personality that I most fell in love with.
Joe has talked about having a family for as long as I’ve known him. Parenthood has always been one of his most important life goals. With his loving personality, I know he is going to be a wonderful father. I am so excited to see Joe share this love with our child.
I fell in love with his easy going, patient personality. He is down to earth and extremely caring. He is level headed and always puts others rst. He has an adventurous spirit and wants to soak up every opportunity that life throws his way.
He is so smart and has an eagerness to learn. I couldn’t pick a more perfect person to raise a child with. He is a natural with our nieces and our friends’ children. With Casey, the possibilities are endless and the sky’s the limit. I’m excited for our child to have that in uence in their life.
