Chalk Up Another Romance to
How We Met
We both had profiles on Match.com. Teresa
found Amanda very shortly after joining, and added her to her
favorites list. Thankfully, Amanda wrote her to ask why, and well,
the rest, as they say, is history!
Our Life Together
We're currently living in Abingdon, Virginia, in a
duplex. Our adjacent neighbor says she's always glad to
see us every few days since we're so quiet -- and we could
say the same for her. We've enjoyed fixing up our place,
decorating it with our many treasures.
Abingdon is a very small town (population 8,191),
but generally artsy (home of the Barter Theatre - the state
friendly. As we are both wolf lovers, we were amused to
learn that the town was originally named Wolf Hills in 1760,
by Daniel Boone.
We live with our
dignified, brilliant, nearly human cat, Marble,
and Faden (Fay-den) and Flash, affectionately known as "The Boys."
They're all rescue kitties! We hope to be
able to adopt more pets in the future when we have more
The longer we live together, the more we discover
just how much we have in common -- an uncanny number of
things -- a continuously wonderful discovery experience!
In our future, we see a custom-built log cabin home
or stone cottage or a Hobbit house, plenty
of space for animals (including horses!), a vegetable
weather observation equipment, and whatever else we think of
between now and then. Not too far from civilization, but far enough to have peace and quiet. Perhaps one day we'll even
open up a gluten and dairy-free, pet-friendly Bed & Breakfast.
