just me and Eric
We don't have many photos of us together because it's usually just the two of us with no one to take the photos, but when Sarah was here she got a bunch. Yay! Sorry if all the kissing makes you sick, but when were we gonna get a chance to do this again?
I grew up in Delaware and had your average American upbringing. A few years ago a boy from France wrote to me on Myspace because we both liked the band Yo La Tengo. The rest is history. We wrote a bit back and forth, then more and more, then talked on the phone, then met and were engaged after a week together, and a year later we were married! I have never been happier, and now our life together is just beginning...I'm moving to Paris to be with him. My French is not too good yet, and I will have many adventures, I'm sure. I'd like to share them with you if you're interested! I am a podcast nerd, I like making collages and my own Christmas cards, I love cooking and museums and shopping in outdoor markets, I love cats and long walks.
