First, we’ll tell you a little about how we met, but the story changes with each point of view on this one. Will’s version: “We met at a work training. I saw this cute girl and decided to ask her to go to dinner with my friend and me. Then our relationship grew from there after I continued to be attracted to Amy’s kindness and approachableness. We started getting to know each other more and hanging out. I played “hard to get” by having people over and not inviting her myself but having someone else invite her. It worked like a charm.” Amy’s version: “Will first charmed me at dinner after training. He was extremely polite with a warm smile, such a gentleman, and offered me a bite of his food (the true key to my heart). The rest is history, and he is my real-life prince charming.”
We dated for a year and a half before Will proposed at an old movie theater. He thought he tricked me into thinking I was going to see a pre-release viewing of “Despicable Me 3.” Instead, he sang “In Case you Didn’t Know” to me and got down on one knee. We married a year and a half later.
We’ve been married for four years and have built a relationship on love, faith, and teamwork. Prior to marriage, our love grew quickly, and it was easy to know we were meant to be together. We share similar interests, and each bring strengths that help the other person get to heaven, our ultimate life goal. One thing we love about our relationship is how we both pitch in to help and share responsibilities around the house. This should translate well when building our family.
Some of our family traditions include:
- Mardi Gras parades as an extended family
- Weekends and summer holidays at the lake and beach condo
- Annual cookie decorating for Santa
- Easter games which include a water balloon fight, egg toss, scavenger hunt, and more
- Saran wrap ball game at Christmas
We can't wait for a new child to be able to experience this with us and our larger family and to make even more of our own home traditions!
