Eric and Carolyn actually met right after they got out of high school. Carolyn had just graduated and decided to participate as a leader on Notre Dame’s Senior Awakening Retreat. Eric was also a leader on the retreat and had been on multiple retreats prior to this one. He graduated from Covington Catholic 5 years before me and had a very emotional and compelling talk he gave to the seniors. They spoke a little bit over the weekend and kept in touch for a year or so after the weekend was over but then we went our separate ways.
Both of them were newly single and in the dating game when we came across each other on the Tinder dating app. We both “swiped right” and got to chatting. Carolyn remembered immediately who he was yet we both continued to talk like strangers until he finally asked her if she remembered him. She laughed. She assumed he had forgotten her… So she didn’t want to be creepy and remind him that they already knew one another.
They went on our first date to Edgewood Tavern (a local hole-in-wall bar). They had some drinks and some great conversation and the rest is history.
After about a year and a half of dating they got pregnant with their super adorable Eamon who was the most epic adorable little ring bearer! They have been living together and have really grown to love one another deeply as they have built a family!
