Tell us about the love you share
Renee and I met on the online dating site Zoosk. Both of us were VERY apprehensive about online dating, but after much encouragement from friends, we said what the heck :) For our first date we met halfway at the Solomon Pond Mall and had dinner and drinks at TGIFriday's. We were both very nervous but excited at the same time. It went very well and dates two and three followed soon thereafter!
Renee proposed to me on May 26, 2018 after teaching and practicing with all three kids how to kneel on one knee. Our proposal site was at Hampton Pond under a beautiful oak tree!.
What do you love most about your partner?
There is too much to list what I love about Renee! :) What I love most is how genuine she is, kind, loving, an amazing mom, and always makes me feel so special and like I am her number one!
I love her optimism, even when the chips are down! I love how supportive she is, how accepting she is of me and my quirkiness! I LOVE how much she loves my children and refers to them as ours! I love how she loves my family like her own and my friends like she's known them for years! I love how much she loves to be with me, even when I'm cranky and I love how much she shows me how much she loves me!!
