Something you’ve always wanted to tell people: Our family had been a bit worried that we got married before graduating college, so we would tell them that we made it!
An anecdote that captures your relationship: BB: One day I came home from work, and I knew that Elizabeth was really stressed out. She had an exam the next morning, and she had been working at her job too. I came home and she was still making dinner, and apologizing for it not being lavish enough. I thought, “Are you kidding me?” I knew what a stressful day she’d had.
