Favorite moment with Nile: When I first moved here and Nile took me to the Indianapolis Museum of Art. At this moment, I realized my life would never be the same. He was so sweet, fun, and loving. I also had no idea men like Nile existed ~ it's been a wonderful realization!

How we met: On June 13, 2009, Nile attended his cousin's wedding in Lima, Ohio. Jess also attended this wedding as the groom (Nile's cousin) was a lifelong friend growing up. At this time, Jess had just found out she got a job in Indianapolis and was to move there in July. At the reception, Nile (suavely & strategically) placed himself at a table right next to Jess to "talk to a friend" that was also sitting at the table. When Jess returned to her seat next to Nile, he struck up a conversation. During this conversation, a few things happened:
1. Jess found out Nile already lived in Indy (where she was moving)
2. Nile drew tons of diagrams showing Jess around her new city
3. Everything happening around these 2 individuals seemed to stop completely
4. The start of one of the most wonderful adventures they had ever been a part of

This blog is to document our lives, our fun, our eating habits, our interests, and our journey together that has just begun.
