Hello world, and welcome to Meet the Gallarno’s. We decided a while back that we thought it would be fun to share some of our experiences and adventures as a married couple, and what better way to do that than through a blog?!
First things first: introductions!
My name is Emily. I’m a lover of cats, Marvel (I live and breath for Captain America), anything to do with weddings, Investigation Discovery and Moscow Mules! I am a very proud daughter of two Ghanaian immigrants, and am a first generation American. My sister, who is shorter even though she is older, is the absolute coolest, and I get literally all of my swag from her. I am an introvert with extroverted tendencies, who also suffers from depression, but neither of those things stop me from being my best self and living the best life I possibly can!
Ahem, excuse me, Cameron here! Let me introduce myself! I'm an early adopter of technology, fan of all things science fiction (and a bit of science fact), and the middle child sandwiched between a younger brother and an older sister. I also love the grind of startup companies. Working on a small team with a lot of responsibility and working to make a big impact is extremely rewarding.
When I'm not developing, or neck deep in a project, I'm probably watching Firefly or Avatar: The Last Airbender. Putting my Eagle Scout rank to good use, I enjoy getting outside and hiking or staring up into the night sky.
and now... back to Emily!
A bit of backstory
Now, to tell you all about us, as a couple. Well, for those that don’t know us, we are high school sweethearts. We’d been going to school together ever since we were twelve, but didn’t meet until three months before high school was over. It only took about a month and a half before we were officially prom dates, and started dating shortly after that!
We dated for 7 long, but wonderful years before we got married. In that time, we traveled together, made it through college, adopted the most adorable cat (we've since added another!), and moved into our very first apartment! Our wedding was one day shy of our 7th anniversary, and it was the best day of our lives. All of our closest family and friends joined us to party and celebrate the newest chapter of this crazy, exciting, amazing love story of ours.
It’s our hope that through this blog we can share a little about who we are, how we manage to get through the craziness of adulting, how we continue to grow with and love each other more and more every day, and everything in between. So pull up a seat and stay a while! We hope you’ll enjoy this adventure with us!
