We met 10 years ago while out with friends. We had mutual friends for over 15 years, but never met until that night. It was "first sight" for us, and we've been together ever since.
Since then we spend every day together, most of the day. We walk together, kayak, run races, everything together, and we are truly partners. We both work from home so we have all meals together. We value nightly family dinners.
We have a large organic garden, an urban farm of sorts, that we eat from most of the year. We have chickens for eggs, and a large fenced in yard that is an oasis in metro Atlanta. We have all of the access to the education and opportunities Atlanta provides, while still maintaining a farm environment.
The things that we value most are education, spirituality, health, and emotional wellness. We both meditate and do yoga daily.
Four years ago we started trying to have a family of our own, but could not after several miscarriages. It was a really hard time for us, but it has made us that much stronger! We believe our losses will make us even better parents, because we appreciate how precious a child truly is.
We raised my now grown daughter together. Her name is Lilith, and she is 22. She makes us so proud. She is about to finish her BA, and successfully lives on her own. We are very close and talk daily.
Christy taught yoga to the public and unprivileged youth for years, while Michael grew up as a boy scout and Eagle scout.
We feel we have so much time and attention to give a child.
We have a 3600 sq ft home, 3 bdrm, 2 bath. Two story, with a finished basement for office space and recreation. Our entire yard is fenced in for safety and privacy. We have an extra room ready to go!
Our front yard is an organic garden, and the back yard is a bamboo forest, a play area and the chicken coop. Lots of owls and wildlife.
We are near everything that Atlanta provides- education, entertainment, and diversity. We truly live on an oasis in the city!
Christy is outgoing, caring and motivated. She is a self-employed tax accountant, who has worked from home for the past decade. She teaches yoga part time, volunteers part time, and loves dancing (free form and middle eastern) and art. She plays piano and guitar. She truly is well rounded, and able to be both math-smart and creative. She loves animals, nature, and must get outside every day!
Michael is smart, sweet and so helpful! He graduated with Honors from Georgia Tech, runs his own IT business, and has also worked from home for over a decade.
He loves to build and fix things around the house. He is an avid gardener and spends his spare time out in the garden. He is always reading and helping others. He is truly a joy to talk to- you will always learn something new.
