Who We Are
We’ve been together for nine years. We feel lucky to have found each other, or really, it was lucky that our friends knew us well. We met on a blind date and moved in together within the first year.
After a year and half of dating, John proposed and we got married. We knew we wanted a family, plus a dog.
We adopted our dog, Thor, four years ago. People always tell us that "he looks like he’s smiling.” Having him in our lives reminds us to be silly and enjoy life.
Night or day, Thor loves to play and we love to play with him.
Most nights are spent sharing the ottoman with Thor, watching our favorite TV shows.
