couple on the beach

Tracie and Joe met in February 2010 at a mutual friend’s birthday celebration. Tracie was standing next to Joe when she moved abruptly and knocked over Joe’s drink. As she continuously apologized and tried to help clean up, Joe charmed her with his jokes and asked her to dance. The two of them spent the rest of the night dancing, laughing, and smiling. There was no hiding the chemistry between them. Even though neither one was looking for a relationship, they both somehow knew that this night together wouldn’t be their last. Joe insisted that Tracie give him a ride home which was when he made a sly move to get her phone number, and obviously it worked!
A couple days later, Joe asked Tracie on a date. It was during their first date that they both realized how much they had in common. There was so much to talk about that even the waiter had to come back several times to get their order. Shortly after their first date Tracie caught the flu. Joe truly won over her heart when he made a surprise visit with some chicken noodle soup. Their bond was so strong that Tracie and Joe knew in a short time that they had finally found the one.
Tracie is a property manager from Chicago and Joe is a Engineering Designer from Southwest Florida. Along with frequent visits to see Tracie’s family in Chicago, much of their free time is spent at the ball park. If Joe is not on the baseball field umpiring, then they are in the stands cheering for their favorite team the Tampa Bay Rays.
Tracie and Joe are very passionate about their life together and look forward to achieving the goals they share as a couple. They are both very excited to celebrate their “BIG DAY” with close family and friends next November. As Joe would say, “Its gonna be one hell of a party!”
