We met in the fall of 2010 through our friend, Kelsey Hakeem, at a Dia de los Muertos art show being held at Alynn Guerra’s studio.
We had our first date on New Year’s Day and enjoyed the time we spent getting to know each other during our first winter together.
By springtime it was clear that we would spend some time long distance. Emily moved to New York City for her residency in family medicine, and John started a dual master’s program in Indiana, but we made it work!
Now, after almost two years of long distance, we’re excited to enter the next phase of our relationship. We look forward to August, when John finishes school and moves to New York. We plan on returning to the mitten after Emily completes her residency program in 2014.
