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…

  1. Both of you look amazing in your wedding dress and suit:) Wishing you the best and good luck on starting a family. Yes, keep us posted. My girlfriend and I will be tying the knot in a year or two and just like you, we’d like to start a family. She told me, “about time I make an honest woman out of you:)” Again, Congratulations:)

    1. Thank you sooo much for the kind words Marcela and we love your pups! We have an adorable Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix, adopted when he was almost 2; we just celebrated his 6th birthday! Congratulations to you and your girlfriend as well.

  2. We love you two so much and eagerly look forward to the day you tell us that baby will make three (who knows…maybe four!!) 😉 A child/children could not want a more loving, nurturing home and parents than what you two will be and provide. While traveling this long and at times seemingly hard road, remember it will all be so worth it in the end.

  3. Hi, I’m Leah and Just found your blog. I like finding gay couples who are raising a family. Something my partner have been hoping for, for a very long time. We’ve been trying for quite some time with no luck as yet. Like I said I like connecting with people who are similar to us and look forward to reading the rest of your blog. Oh and I’m from Australia so Hi from down under 🙂

  4. Hi Leah, thanks for the comment. I checked out your blog, seems like we have a lot of things in common. I greatly appreciate your support!
