How did you guys meet?

Pure happenstance, volunteering at a charity event for breast cancer.

What is your favorite way of spending time together?

We love to travel and explore places that are off the beaten path, especially for a good meal!

What was your first impression of each other?

I was part of a group helping to set up a tent for the charity event and instead of helping, she threw skittles at me from across the room. But she did provide words of encouragement amidst the barrage. She had caught my eye long before then when she first came into the room, so I didn’t mind the rainbow hailstorm very much.

Tell us about a favorite memory that you shared together.

Exploring tapas restaurants on our first visit to Spain. If you’re a foodie, you can’t beat the variety of cheap eats, and the specialties each region has to offer.

What do you like the most about each other?

She puts up with my jokes and pushes me to come out of my shell.

He always makes me laugh.

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