Graham and I met at Indiana University when we were graduate students at the School of Library and Information Science. Graham was in the library program and I was in the information science program.
The first time we met was on a cold December night at an ALA (American Library Association) party to celebrate the end of the fall semester. It was a big, loud party and we only spoke briefly. Then we didn’t see each other again until April of the next year at an ALA wine and cheese event. We went on a date a week later and have been together and happy ever since!
After we graduated from Indiana University, we took a month long trip across country out west. Then we lived in New Harmony, Indiana for a year while we looked for work.
In April of 2011 we moved to Chicago where we both got jobs. In May of 2012 we bought a beautiful home in a lovely old neighborhood here in Chicago.
We feel so lucky to have found each other and we are looking brightly out at our future together.
Here are some of my favorite photos of Graham and me.
