About Us

Thanks for visiting our webpage.  For all of the latest updates on our lives, be sure to check out our blog.  We'll update it at least once a month so be sure to check back often. 

Mike and I met in April of 2005.  We were introduced by our mutual friend, Joey, when we were at The Swamp for Happy Hour. We met up again a week later for another Happy Hour, and we really hit it off.  We spent more time together, and I knew there was something serious there when he asked me to be his date to a friend's wedding about a month later. 

Things went well. We officially started dating on May 6, 2005. We moved in together in February 2006.  Mike proposed on our 1 year dating anniversary after a wonderful dinner at the Melting Pot.  (For more details on the proposal and the wedding, check out our wedding page.)  We got married on the weekend of our 2nd anniversary at the Thomas Center in Gainesville. 

We're currently living in a home that my family owns while we finish school.  We're both really happy with where we are, but we also can't wait to get out of town.  That will have to wait a while, though, as we'll finally be done with school in the summer of 2010.

Mike and I are a pretty laid back couple. We are both Florida natives and we love the beach.  Some of our favorite things include: our dog, being outdoors, grilling, wine, Family Guy, happy hour, 80s nite, Moe's, the Gators, Jamaica, Judd Apatow movies, fantasy football, Satchel's calzones, college basketball, Ratatat (it's a band),Silver Strike and pool, "your mom" jokes, tailgating, Bob Marley, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
