Sage and I met through our mutual friends, Greg & Jade in Austin, TX on a sunny spring afternoon in 2013. We were both visiting from Brooklyn, but had never met before then. We spent that whole first day together exploring the city with a group of mutual friends. But our eyes or conversation never left each other. That was the start of our life together. The importance of family, friends and community says a lot about who Sage and I are as a couple. Our love is big and brings lots of people together. From early in our relationship we decided we wanted to devote our lives to raising a child together. We struggled for 6 years with infertility and ultimately realized that our dream for a family didn’t require a biological connection, but more importantly a child to love. Our journey has been long, but we believe we are right where we are supposed to be and we trust that everything happens for a reason. Our gratitude for you considering us is more tremendous than we even know how to put into words.
Throughout our lives we have both been passionate about all things creative and expressive. Art and music fills our home and we are constantly learning new things about the world and its wonders. We both love to cook and care deeply about nutrition and physical well being. Our life at home is always accompanied by music and conversations on current events. Sage has a vast record collection and we both read and follow the news and discoveries of the day.
We love to see live music and explore new restaurants in our city as well as when we travel. Living in NYC offers us the opportunity to take advantage of so much great theatre, museums and dance performances. During the summers we often rent a house outside of the city with friends and enjoy hiking and swimming with our dog in the beautiful Catskill mountains. The winter is our time for travel. Getting away from the city to warmer climates and exploring new cultures is something we look forward to sharing with a little one.
