We both went to the same high school, and spun around in the same circle of friends.
Our friendship lasted throughout high school and the Summer before we started college, I (Nick) finally got up enough courage to ask Emily out on a date, after having a crush on her for about a year. We both knew that we were the only ones for each other. We dated for a year, engaged for a year and got married in July 2009.
Emily is a naturally introverted person who likes to observe the people and environment around her before jumping into situations/conversations. She is very good at picking up on social and emotional cues and gauging how to respond in order to love on people right where they are. Emily is a stay at home mommy. Her heart has always known she wanted to be a wife and a mommy. Being at home with our two young sons, homeschooling, playing out in the backyard, prepping dinners and kissing ouchies. All of this (except the laundry and dishes…ha!) brings her life.
Nick is magnetic and hilarious. He is able to get everyone laughing and comfortable within moments of walking into a room. He spent the past 10 years working with teenagers in a church youth group and youth centers. He loves to connect with people. Nick is now an IT Supervisor at a company 15 mins from home. He has always had a passion for technology and his career is the perfect mix of that while still being able to interact with people. It brings him life.
