Our Relationship

Late in 2004 Marie and Mike met at a technical fair at IBM where Mike was presenting. A friendship quickly began. Over the years, their mutual respect for hiking, metal concerts, and cooking brought the two very close. In the summer of 2006 Mike and Marie finally became a couple. They traveled the world together including such places as the Dominican Republic, Italy and Peru. As the years progressed their love grew stronger and stronger. They found comfort in each other. They routinely took new adventures together, like furniture building and trips to Las Vegas. They have two wonderful dogs Izzy and Lando. On July 20th 2014 Mike surprised Marie during a geo-caching hike on the Dutchess Railtrail with a ring and a proposal that stated: "Marie, will you be my wife?"
She graciously accepted and they eagerly await starting the next chapter of their lives together.
