How did you guys meet?

Josh and I met in high-school, when he was dating my best friend. They broke up, and years later when we were in college, we got together. (And yes, the girl and I are STILL best friends!)

What is your favorite way of spending time together?

Going to concerts and music festivals, traveling the world, adventuring outside, and taking walks with our fur-baby, Tiberius!

What was your first impression of each other?

Josh: “Man, she is HOT!”

Corinne: “He is so handsome…too bad he drives a station wagon….”

Josh and I love to travel and go on adventures–we went on a 4-night caving excursion in Vietnam! 100+ degree heat (and humidity), all day hiking, sleeping in caves, and drinking rice wine with the locals definitely left a lasting impression on us! Everyone should go to Thailand and Vietnam if given the chance!

What do you like the most about each other?

Josh: “The fact that she is almost ALWAYS smiling.”

Corinne: “So cliche, but he makes me laugh…all. the. time.”

If you could describe your relationship in 3 words, what would they be?

Always laugh together.

We grew up 4 miles away from each other in South Jersey.

Our dog’s name is Tiberius not after the Roman Emperor, but after James Tiberius Kirk, a character from the original Star Trek.

Our birthdays are 1 year, 1 month, and 1 day apart.
