We’ve been together for nine years and look forward to what the future holds. 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.
We knew early on that this was “it” for us. After a year and half of dating, we got married. We knew we wanted a family and a house that was big enough for us, plus a dog.
We adopted our dog, Thor, four years ago and he’s made our lives so much better. People always tell us “he looks like he’s smiling.” Having him in our lives reminds us to be silly and enjoy life.
We live in a four bedroom home near Minneapolis. It is a peaceful neighborhood surrounded by lush trees and good neighbors. There is a lot of space inside and out, including a fenced-in pond. We often see frogs, geese, deer and other animals greeting us in the morning.
Weekends might be spent working on the yard but we also like being on our patio to grill or just hang out. Our dog, Thor, runs all over the yard and we love to play with him.
John says about himself: I'm a big fan of Doctor Who and Marvel Comics. I spent about 12 years in college and graduated from law school a few years ago. I’ve worked hard to accomplish my goals but since I met Katie, I’ve been more interested in the goals we can meet together.
Katie says about John: I love John’s enthusiasm for life. He’s always trying new things. He’ll be a great dad.
Katie says about herself: I’m a big movie fan and enjoy going to the theater or watching at home. About 12 years ago, I got into running. I started with one mile and eventually ran marathons. Now, John and I run together. Even though he’s faster than me, he stays by my side so we can finish together.
John says about Katie: Katie’s heart is always in the right place. Her generosity is boundless and she shares all of herself.
