During the fall of 2010,
...and after a couple phone conversations and a 15 hour first date, we knew we’d be sharing the second half of our life’s journey with someone who made every day magical.
We enjoyed the busy exciting life we had while building our careers, but the pace was grueling. We worked full-time and multiple part-time jobs while continuing our education. Work demands and unhealthy home lives magnified the need for change.
Oddly – though several states apart and unaware that the other existed – we were both initiating steps to shift to a simpler, more meaningful life. We biked, spent more time in nature, found self-help resources, dug out our journals, and initiated the necessary steps toward a more physically and mentally healthier life.
Had it not been for a well-timed keystroke, we would never have met.
