We met online in January 2016 while living in different parts of California. After a couple of months of chatting, Eric took the plunge and got on a plane to fly down to Southern California, and it’s been great ever since! In November of 2016 Tavares moved up to Oakland and we finally had the chance to see each other all of the time instead of just on weekends. We adopted Bailey and Rocco in February 2018 to complete our family. We took a trip to Hawaii in April 2019 and Eric popped the question while watching the sunset on the beach. We’re so excited to spend the rest of our lives together.
