"The heart has reasons that reason cannot know."
"I have been and always shall be your friend"
"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."
"One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving."
"I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you"
I am sure some of you have heard us side-step this question before. The truth, we met online. Or as we like to joke, we met at our favorite place: the computer. It being 2012, and given our respective careers, it only seems fitting. Neither of us signed up willingly, we only logged on once, but the rest is history. Because I guess, it only takes one.
The first time was in November, we had just seen the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. As we were walking out of
the theater, we stumbled upon the park bench we had sat on for hours during one of our first dates.
Rockefeller Center was empty (which is rare), we sat down, and Paul asked. And Annie said yes!
Ever the traditionalist, Paul wanted to do it again with a ring and her dad's permission. So we kept it quiet, he finished shopping, and Paul planned a Christmas proposal in Texas. Flying in the ring started burning a hole in his pocket, so in the Terminal E parking lot of DFW Airport, Paul got down on one knee and Annie said yes, again!
"Chief" is Paul's younger brother. He is an ultimate frisbee expert and professional heavy-metal musician. He is also a freshman at the University of Illinois.
Paul's first friend, Dylan has been around since preschool. When he is not building Formula cars, he is working on a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at MIT.
A close friend since college, Paul & Dieter's friendship grew over many a 5am Dunkin' Donuts outing. Also working on a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at MIT.
Paul's long time friend. Copywriter by day and actor by night. You might also recognize Murphy from "I killed my BFF" on the Biography channel.
Thomas is Annie's younger brother. Paul and Thomas immediately bonded over Monty Python and Star Trek. He is also a freshman at Fordham University.
Daniel Schorfheide & Jon Contrades
Annie's rock star younger sister. Emily rows crew and is studying Mechanical Engineering at UPenn, all the while finding time to call Annie to catch up everyday.
Annie's older sister and sidekick growing up. She is finishing up medical school in Houston and is planning on being an Ear Nose and throat surgeon extraordinaire.
Great friends since college, Ashton and Annie bonded over "Footloose" and NY Times Crosswords. Ashton is working on a Law degree at SMU in Dallas.
Inseparable since college, they met and it was like they had known each other forever. When she isn't watching the cheesiest shows on TV she works in Marketing in Dallas.
Suzanne is Annie's cousin and close friend. She is finishing up high school in Oklahoma City and could school anyone at tennis.

Say you've been to Fort Worth, at least one person will ask: "Did you got
to Joe T's?" Great atmosphere and killer margaritas,
be warned: they're strong!
There is always debate about the best place to get barbecue in Cowtown, but we recommend Railhead for a good hearty Texas meal. You can even bring a bit of Texas home with you, they ship!
Maybe not the healthiest joint, still Whataburger has developed a cult following in Texas. But really, it doesn't get much better than a Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit.
Fort Worth wasn't dubbed "Cowtown" for nothin', y'all, check out our rich western history or get your two-step on at Billy Bob's, "The World's Largest Honky Tonk."
With three stellar, world-renowned museums, everyone is bound to see something they fancy. Check out the Amon Carter, the Kimbell, & the Modern
for a bit of culture.
With lions and tigers and bears, oh my, it's no wonder Fort Worth's Zoo is ranked the No. 5 Zoo in the nation.
