We are an eclectic couple who love traveling and exploring new places as much as we like curling up on the couch and binge watching television shows on Netflix. We are full of energy and sarcasm and balance each other out well, unless someone mentions ice cream, then all bets are off. There are very few weekends we are home, alone, doing nothing. Whether it is visiting Mike’s family, traveling to see Karl’s, or packing the dogs up and walking around someplace new, we like to stay active when the weather permits.
About Michael (written by Karl):
Michael isn't the life or the party or the center of attention. He prefers to observe quietly rather than shine, however people are still drawn to him because he shines on the inside rather than the outside. Michael is the first person to lend a hand or offer help in any kind of situation. I've watched him run towards an accident scene on a busy expressway before traffic had even come to a stop so he could offer help. His first thought is always of others, not of himself.
Just because he's quiet doesn't mean he's boring. Michael is prankster and loves playing practical jokes. He likes to hide behind things and jump out and scare people, usually me, when they least expect it. He gets great enjoyment out of it. Even the dogs aren't safe as he hides behind doors and scares them, too!
Unlike me, Michael loves to cook. He's often his own worst critic but my waistline's proof that he's not as bad as he thinks! Michael likes to prepare meals for us as well as others. He often makes lunch or baked goods for coworkers. I'm usually the Guinea pig for these recipes. They're usually pretty good but he tweaks them and then the coworkers get the revised, better tasting, version! Michael is going to be a great parent to our children. He'll offer love, structure, and adventure to them. He will teach them how to do things like cook, have a sense of humor, and be dedicated to the goals they set for themselves. Our children will be as lucky to have him in their lives as I am.
About Karl (written by Michael):
What to say about Karl...well, he spells his name funny for starters. He sometimes takes way too long in the bathroom and has a very strange obsession with cars. He procrastinates, suffers from “only-child syndrome”, and has a huge problem with sharing (the bed duvet, his French fries etc.) But he loves his chocolate milk and animals almost as much as his cars. He can be goofy and compassionate within the same nanosecond and HATES to be tickled, although it is a lot of fun to tickle him.
He’ll be the first in line to give you the shirt off his back, gets emotional at the end of most movies, and averts his eyes when an animal is injured on the Walking Dead or Game of Thrones. His friends love him, his in-laws adore him, and he puts up with me, which has to count for something!
If there is one thing I would like to see for Karl, it would be for him to become a father. He will make an incredible parent and he is looking so forward to it. It will bring him unspeakable joy and I would want nothing more for him.
Karl is, well, Karl. And there is nothing I would change about him.
