my top 10

hi friends,

i am a...

our love story

If it happened in a movie, people might say is was cheesy, but…our story starts with love at first sight. Like I said, pretty cheesy, but true nonetheless.

A little back story - You see, I was supposed to move to Asheville, NC right after college. I had an apartment with one of my best friends and a teaching job all lined up. Unfortunately, my Jeep had other plans…namely to stop working. I had a choice to make: stick to my Asheville plans and move down without a vehicle, or stay with my parents for a year and save up for a car. And since Asheville is a mountain town and the teaching job I had lined up was in the boonies, my choice was pretty clear – I had to stay with the ‘rents for a while, THEN I’d move down to NC to resume my post-college, adulting life. Well, my plans to move to Asheville never came to fruition, but fortunately for me, a momentary inconvenience led to me meeting the love of my life, Dave.

I was offered a job teaching at my alma mater, the perfect place to get my educational feet wet! The start of school was a blur – meetings to attend, new systems to learn, curriculum to know, lessons to plan, co-teachers to meet…and that’s when it happened. I walked into E305 to meet Mr. Yohn with whom I would be teaching 10th Grade English. He was sitting in his chair facing his computer, and as soon as he turned around to say hello, I remember thinking, well, crap, this is going to be trouble…all the air went out of the room, my cheeks were instantly flushed, I started stammering over my words, and I’m pretty sure my pits were sweating uncontrollably (scratch that…my pits were DEFINITELY sweating uncontrollably). I was immediately smitten, despite my incessant denial. I never imagined he would be interested in me too. As luck or fate or whatever else may have it, Dave had also been secretly crushing on me, which of course I didn’t discover until months later, after dropping my “no, I swear, we really are just friends…I don’t like like him!” charade. And thus, our journey began.

After over a decade together filled with moments of pure happiness, sheer hilarity, and profound change, I can’t imagine my life without Dave. He is my rock, my center, my shelter from the storm. But as amazing as all of that is, the true beauty of our relationship is in our balance. Where Dave is regimented and organized, I tend to lean more towards the “organized chaos” end of the spectrum. While I am more extroverted and gregarious, Dave is more introverted and reserved. Dave has a proclivity for punctuality but is geographically challenged, whereas I have a tendency for tardiness and am basically a human GPS. I am driven by emotions and lead with my heart, while Dave is driven by reason and leads with his head. We have a unique ability to bring out the best in one another, which is our most defining quality as a couple.

Nicholas Sparks sums it up pretty well, “The best kind of love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.” I am forever grateful that I have found that kind of love and that it has created so many cherished moments in my life. It is my sincere hope to capture those distinct attributes that convey our clients’ love – whether families, couples, or love of oneself. Love is love is love, and it is always worth celebrating.
