David and Meaghan share many different loves, one of which is sports. Both of them were working in the college athletics department when they met. They were doing the same job at different schools and struck up a friendship. After three years, a friend of David's encouraged him to ask Meaghan out (despite the fact that she soon was moving 1200 miles away), and he did. Fortunately, long distance did not deter the couple, who never lived closer than a five-hour car ride away from one another. More often than not, they lived in different time zones over the course of their 2.5 year relationship before getting married in 2015. In fact, they never lived in the same city until Meaghan moved in with David in Texas two months AFTER they were married in Florida. Meaghan was teaching there at the time. In four years of marriage, they have moved, been through job changes, traveled, suffered loss, celebrated successes, and built a foundation for the future. A future that they hope includes a family.
She is funny, intelligent and not afraid to speak her mind.

It didn't take long in our friendship for me to see that Meaghan had so many of the qualities I was looking for in a partner. She is funny, intelligent and not afraid to speak her mind. She is not intimidated by strong personalities because she can stand up to them with her own style of sass and sarcasm. When she smiles, her whole face lights up. There is nothing fake about her. Those qualities, and many more, are exactly what made me fall in love with her when she first met my family. She fit right in and caught on quickly to their style of joking. Within hours of meeting Meaghan, my dad pulled me aside and said I had found a good one. I knew I had found the partner that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with! We laugh often, love each other deeply, and enjoy building a life with one another. Meaghan is a force that people can't help but be attracted to because she brings life and love into every occasion. Her passions and hobbies mean she will always have something fun to talk about and her baking skills are the envy of every teacher at her school. I look forward to the next phase in our lives and watching her mother a child!
He is intelligent, kind, loyal, funny, witty, and a thoroughly entertaining dancer .

It was at our second meeting that I wondered what it would be like to go out with David! After our third date, I wondered what it would be like to marry him. He is intelligent, kind, loyal, funny, witty, and a thoroughly entertaining dancer - just ask anyone at our wedding! David endeared himself to my family from their first meeting and even shares his own inside jokes with each of my family members. He proves over and over that he can fit in with whatever group of people he is surrounded by. David adores the children of his best friends and I look forward to watching him with a future child. I imagine them reading, playing games, building Lego towers, and more together.
