Our story is for sure an interesting one, and anything but traditional.

We met within the walls of Jared the Galleria of Jewelry in Erie, PA. He was the manager for the Design & Service Center and I was a part time Liaison when we first met. After a few months my career with Signet really began to grow and it was an amazing journey in itself.

My now husband and I both clicked on a very human level, we were both going through really bad divorces and we ended up leaning on each other a lot. As my career grew, and my work location changed, and time went on we knew that no matter what we would tackle the world together.

The beginning of our relationship was filled with rocky roads that we handled together, we have overcome health hurdles, we have handled infertility issues, we have tackled so many things together, I wouldn't be where I am today, and I wouldn't be as happy as I am without him in my life.

We officially got together in late 2016, early 2017, and sometimes looking back it feels like a lifetime, it feels like time before "us" isn't a thing. We moved into together before we were even a couple and the roommate phase didn't last long because we clicked on every level possible. Not only did I find my soul mate, I also fell in love with his son. He is 9 now, I came into the picture when he was 3. I call him my inherited son and he is absolutely a main part of the center of my world.

My husband and I got married March 8, 2019. We celebrated by going to his Design & Service Center to celebrate with the people that were our family. Our wedding day was just about us. We had both been married before and neither of us wanted a huge wedding. We got the marriage license days before, and only told the people we worked with what we were doing. We went and enjoyed each other, we got breakfast at our favorite little greasy spoon in Erie, called Panos. And got married at 2pm. It was perfect. I was now working at the Kay Jewelers in Erie while he was still at Jared, and of course, our wedding jewelry selection was a special ordered wrap and 3/4 carat solitaire for me, and a comfort fit white gold band for him, because neither of us wanted anything too extravagant, but we wanted something that fit who we are.

Then something really amazing happened to us. Eight days after we got married, we found out I was pregnant. Something that I was told would never happen. We were both thrilled and over the moon, but scared because of prior health hurdles on my end. But November 14, 2019 our little girl was born, our fiery little red head, who is absolutely amazing and keeps us on our toes.

As the years have gone on, we have fallen more in love, and as the years have gone on, we have become closer and closer. There are so many more details that I could give, but honestly, I could write a novel about this man. We are not perfect, our romance is not all rainbows and sunshine, but we are perfectly imperfect for each other.
