About Us

Proposal

It was a beautiful mother's day in 2015 when Sami suprised Abby with one of her favorite activities, horseback riding! Little did Abby know that wasn't the only suprise. After they finished riding their horses, Sami suggested that they go over to Harper's Ferry and maybe grab a bite to eat. They drove over to the beautiful little town and parked the car, headed into an ice cream parlor for a nosh. After they ate their ice cream, Sami suggested that they go for a walk around Harper's Ferry. They walked down to the water and headed over the bridge into the Maryland side. As Abby was just getting over a cold, Sami suggested that she sit down on a rock near the water and relax for a little bit. It was then that Sami decided to pop the question. She pulled out her phone and started playing their song, took out the ring box and knelt down. She explained that they were beshert (meant to be) and asked Abby to marry her. Abby was crying (of course), said yes! We won't mention the fact that Sami was so nervous that she forgot to open the box before presenting it to Abby :P

About Us

Our Story

First Date Oct. 10 2014

Well our first date seems like it came out of a Friends episode and those that know Sami and I well enough know that we have several copies of the series on DVD in addition to two sets of the Scene-It Friends addition!

We met online just after Yom Kippur. I started the conversation with Sami by asking about how her fast was going and things just blossomed from that point. We agreed to meet for Japanese food on a Friday evening in downtown Silver Spring. Being that we both hate asian food (ha-ha, Not!)

I was a bit worried about going on an online date by myself, and my best friend and her boyfriend were in town at the time, so I asked her if they would come along and stay out of sight just in case. They drove us up and dropped me off. I walked up the steps and took a minute to take in the beautiful woman I saw through the door and then went inside. She smiled at me and I melted, the hostess then seated us. I thought my plan had been foiled when my friends proceeded to be seated at the hibachi table next to us. Trying not to show I was shocked, I turned and faced Sami in an effort to show intrigue and hide the fact that I knew the people beside me. I then ordered sushi, but didn't realize I ordered raw fish; I didn't want to seem like a Sally so I ate it anyway. I went through the whole dinner listening intently to the conversation and enjoying every moment of it. My friend and I had agreed to meet in the bathroom just in case it went sour. I felt the poke in my back to leave to go to the restroom and asked Sami where the restroom was since she had been there before, left to the bathroom. (**Just a side note: It is very easy to do this when on a date with a guy because you don't have to worry about your date walking into the bathroom and seeing you have a pow wow). My friend and I talked quickly as to minimize the risk that Sami would enter the restroom. I told her it was amazing and she didn't have to worry, I would text her when I was ready to leave. The check was paid and we decided on Ben and Jerry's for dessert. Ironically, after we sat down with our ice cream in walks my friends for dessert too (they didn't know we were going to be there). I guess they wanted something sweet as well, thankfully Sami just thought it was a funny coincidence that the same couple was at Ben and Jerry's! We closed down Ben and Jerry's and ended our date with a kiss about 4 hours later. 

*BTW: Sami didn't know about the stealthy part of our first date until a few weeks later; makes for a great story though.

About Us

Fur Babies

Madison (Maddie)

Corgi

Maddie is our Tri color Pembroke Welsh Corgi. She is 9 years old. She's our human in fur. The most emotional dog ever. If there's an emotion she is feeling you know it! ha-ha. Abby brought Maddie home as a puppy. They share the same birthday and it was love at first sight. When she met Maddie she cried in everyone's arm but hers. Fast-forward 9 years later and they are still inseperable.

Nemo

Cat

Nemo is a 7 year old long haired black/ espresso brown cat. He was found on craigslist when Abby was living up in Ohio. She couldn't come home to an empty house without a furry face. The apartment she was living in only allowed cats. Nemo and Abby has many adventures from day one. Neutering which was new to both of them as well as fleas. He has had many a bath. He's the most canine cat we have ever known. He loves, to eat, sleep, and play all the the dogs. He would live as a dog if he could.

Sophie

Dachshund, lab? (she's the mystery child)

Sophie came to our little family by craigslist as well. Maddie had gotten quite lonely and depressed. So it was time to bring home a friend. Sophie came home. We were informed she had been abused and has issues being around most men. Strangers, objects, sounds that are startling also scare her. She's such a sweet dog but acts like a 5 month old puppy instead of a 5 year old dog.
