EQUILIBRIUM

 

J: For me, it was our third date in Dumbo. Or 4th date. 

S: I told her to pick the date and we walked the bridge from Manhattan into Dumbo with no plans. 

J: It felt like we were the only ones walking on the bridge. I felt different and I just knew in that moment. 

S: I don't remember which date it was but it was definitely one of the earlier dates. Something clicked. She was different from anyone that I've ever met. She resonated so well with my family and me, obviously. 

J: When I think about how he has changed my life, he's definitely taught me how to simplicity things and not overthink anything and to just live everyday to my own beat and not care what other people think. I never really knew love like this existed. I'm just so excited for life with him. He's has also taught me how to slow down and it's okay to not constantly be changing the world. It's okay to feel bad some days. It's okay to say no. It's okay to not try to please everyone all the time. I feel so much more comfortable with who I'm growing into because I know I have this person who is pushing me to be live up to my potential.  

S: She's taught me to let go of a lot of things and to just always be happy, no matter what. Everyday she wakes up with a huge smile on her face. A huge smile. And she goes out there and does whatever she needs to do. 

J: We realize how fragile life is and how fortunate we are. If we talk about the future, we want a house on the beach and our little babies fishing with us everywhere. We don't want to be those people that stop everything just because we're having a family. We envision cooking, a house filled with love, family around all the time - an open-door policy with a very happy, comfortable life. We have a very clear vision of what we want to built together and I'm just so excited for all of that is about to happen but I'm grateful for where we are now. 

S: I don't think you need me. You literally just took the words right out of my mouth. That's exactly what I'm looking forward to. I think about a quaint house not too far from the beach with a constant family friend flow. I want to keep doing what we're doing.
