In October 2009, before we were engaged, we followed our dream to move to an island and set off for the town of San Pedro on the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize. We intended to stay for at least 6 months, but the sudden loss of Billy’s father in December 2009 brought us back to Dallas sooner than planned. We stayed in Dallas for the next 2.5 years, during which we got engaged and married. We moved to NYC in April 2012 and after an amazing year in Manhattan, we moved to Santa Monica, CA in April 2013.
Billy is an attorney, a writer, enthusiastic cook, seasoned traveler, and a really good fantasy football player. Most importantly, he’s my best friend and biggest fan.
We love picnics so much that I wrote An Ode to Picnics.
He makes me laugh and he’s taught me a lot about my A-billy-ties.
We prioritize and make decisions to be Happy & You Know It.
We were Beautifully Engaged on May 12, 2010 in Napa Valley on a sunrise hot air balloon ride, followed by a road trip down Highway 1 from San Francisco through Big Sur, San Luis Obispo and on to Los Angeles.
The next day, 4 months from the day of our engagement, we had our Official Wedding Ceremony on September 12, 2010.
On September 13th, we set off for a 24-day European adventure.
During our time in Lake Como, we had A Purple Wedding Day To Remember.
We love to experience new places and we’ve learned so much about each other through our Travels.
During the fall of 2010, we trained together and ran the Dallas White Rock Half Marathon on December 5, 2010. It was the first race for both of us, and we ran in loving memory of his father who passed away the year before on December 2.
He often reminds me to “Kiss Your Husband“.
He’s my greatest treasure, and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to share my life with him.
