During junior high school our two hometowns started going to the same school together. It was during these years that we met, but we were a year apart in school and always just friendly acquaintances. We had similar friends and were on the track team together throughout high school. Our paths continued to parallel as we both attended the University of Maine. After graduating from UMaine, John moved to Massachusetts for his first engineering job and Lindsey moved to Massachusetts to attend Tufts Dental. In the same state, but many miles apart and busy doing different things, we never connected in those years. In 2013, we both happened to move to Portland, Maine and John was looking for a new dentist! John remembered that Lindsey had gone to dental school and was practicing in Scarborough so he called to make an appointment. Following John’s first appointment in September 2014, we went on our first date and haven’t looked back since!
