Our Introduction

The beginning: Kari and I fell in love! I’m Jenn, and I remember when I first noticed her, she moved into the apartment complex where I lived. I looked across the way… “Hey there’s a lesbian moving in” I stated, she’s hot (I thought). We ended up meeting through friends, we were dating other people, and ended up befriending each other. We both had crushes on one another but didn’t think the other would be interested… we were wrong. We started dating in Summer of 2009 and after some amazing/intimidating first dates, butterflies in your stomach experiences, patience and truly learning about the other we fell in love ❤ !


During our 2nd annual trip to Hocking Hills, Kari proposed to me. I said yes of course! She asked me after a day of zip lining through the terrifying heights of the late summer trees, it was the first time I ever observed true fear from her (from the heights, not the proposal, though she was a little jittery for that as well). She is my rock, her strength is admirable and provides a safe feeling in a world of worries.


We moved in with each other, vacated together, and eventually bought a house!

We married/”married” (as it is not yet legally recognized in Ohio) in July of 2011.

We have the most respectful and supporting family, and could not be any luckier. Our families are without a doubt genuinely thrilled that we found someone that makes us happy in this life, to them, nothing beyond that matters!


After taking these paramount journeys together, we are eager to take the next step. We are ready to expand our family. We are choosing to share our experience with others, family, friends, etc. as well as to create memories.

Here is our story…
