Our Story

Makenna writes: "In 2009, I responded to a Craigslist personal ad entitled "Dear Joyous Spirit..." I was hooked by the long and thoughtful piece. Over the next two years, Matthew charmed me with his cooking, the way he made me laugh and his sweetness. Bonus: He was (and still is) willing to challenge his own ideas about race and gender; big ups for those skills. Second bonus: He did not think it was weird that I was a complete Black Girl Nerd :0)

Matthew remembers: She was beautiful, she was smart, and she was funny. She told me she had moved to California because she wanted to live by the ocean. She said she was working on her PhD in Psychology and that she wanted to help people. She was just too interesting to not see again. And again. So it started there and it's never stopped!
