  • Wedding: October 2016

My husband and I met very close to the end of college (my senior year and his masters’), so not really sure how much this counts. We were both full-time students; I worked part-time as a research assistant in a psychology lab and also as a classroom assistant in a pre-school. I don’t think he was working at that specific time, but in previous quarters had been a TA and machine shop assistant.

5 years later, we both work at different tech companies. He’s a product manager in gaming and I work in business development in health care.

Darling Husband & I met when we were really young (didn’t date then though). His full time job in high school & college was playing baseball. When he graduated college, he worked for his Dad’s company for a while. I held part time/summer jobs all through high school & college including working in general sessions court, Victoria’s Secret & at a residential treatment facility for teens. We are both teachers now.

  • Wedding: May 2016

We met in high school and neither of us worked until after our freshmen year of college. He got a seasonal position with Nike that summer. We went back to school for a semester and then transferred schools and there was another Nike closer to that school so he started working there again. He worked his way up to manager and they paid for his last 2.5 years of college. He got another promotion right before graduation so we moved there afterward. He worked there up until last month and finally left Nike after 6 years. He’s currently an assistant buyer for another sports memorabilia company. 

I worked at a cowboy boot store on and off through college. We just moved out of state for DHs new job so I’m not currently working out of the home, but I’m about to go back to school for interior design.
