We put our trust in our mutual friends as they thought that we'd be a good match, so we agreed to meet each other for the first time at a Super Bowl Party back in 2012. The only positive outcome of that night was that we met (since the Patriots lost), as we both felt a connection to each other. From the start, we shared a strong bond talking about and going to sporting events. You can always catch us at a game, or watching the game on TV if we're unable to attend. Many of our date nights have been going to watch our favorite team, the Cleveland Indians play.Our relationship was not always easy as we spent several years in a long distance relationship as Emily was living in Buffalo obtaining her Doctorate in Chiropractic. Although it was very difficult to be far apart, we learned to cherish the time we did spend together. It did require a lot of long drives for both of us and some late nights getting back home, but it was well worth it.On September 3rd, 2017 after coming back from church we stopped at the home family Rehm farm. Emily’s horse Mac was in the pasture had a little note hanging on him asking if she would marry me! When she turned around I had the ring in my hand! Now, we are very excited to continue our journey together!
