Hi! I'm Anaise (rhymes with lace)
Mama to toddler Emerson & doxie Reese, lover of Brent.
Brent and I have been together for 9 years. We met at work (we were servers) and he asked me to cover his shift one day so that he could go surfing and I thought "how dreamy!" The rest is history. We eloped in April of this year.
We reside in Hartford, in a beautiful light filled loft apartment. Our building used to be an old tire factory, and has so much character. It makes me feel like we are fancy NYC dwellers, without all the hustle and bustle of big city living.
These are a few of my favorite things: dachshunds, Charleston SC, barefoot beach walks, breakfast for dinner, chai lattes, vintage Volkswagens and Farmer's Market Sunday mornings.
I'm almost always listening (and singing along in my horrible singing voice) to 90's and early 2000's music.
I have seen every episode of the Golden Girls.
I love the idea of minimalism and tiny houses, and hope to build one of our own one day. Less is more.
This quote was read during our wedding ceremony!
“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are." - Bob Marley
