Betty Beguiles has this great little thing going on today; Ten things about you and your sweetie!
Atticus and I met for the first time at church. After Mass, on the steps of Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago. The first thing we ever did together was pray a decade of the rosary.
Then we had brunch. We both adore brunch. In fact, we love breakfast so much we usually eat it for dinner about once a week or so. We also love to try different brunch places. We bonded over greek omlettes and french toast on challah bread.
We were both history majors in college. Yeah, that explains a lot, right?
We love the Zoo. When we lived in Chicago we were five blocks from the Lincoln Park Zoo and used to go there all the time. Now we have a membership at the Indy Zoo and cannot wait to take Maggie!
Our song is “All I Want is You” by U2.
We cook together. A lot. Atticus really likes to cook (and he’s good at it!), and I like to cook, so together, we make some mean meals. His lasagna and omlettes are particularly delicious.
The Notre Dame campus will always hold a special place in my heart because we had our first kiss there, and many many special memories since then.
Before I met Atticus, I basically thought lawyers were scum. My favorite joke was:
“What do you call 10,000 lawyers chained together at the bottom of the ocean?”
A good start.
Then I met Atticus, and needed a new favorite joke.
We have ridiculous silly nicknames for each other. Of course I won’t tell you what they are.
My heart came alive when I met him. He is the most honest, caring, loyal man I’ve ever met. He is my rock.
