About Us

How We Met

Bob and I met in November 2008 at a business lunch.  We were both working in outside sales and we happened to be in the same place at the right time.  I could see him staring at me from across the room.  We married less than one year later at the Riu Palace Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico.

About Bob

Bob was born in Manitoba and grew up in Alberta.  He is the youngest of 7 children and has a large family with many nieces and nephews.

He works as a Technical Services Manager for an oil company in Albania and travels through Europe every couple of months.  He also has a contract with a local television show for their still photography.

About Marni

Marni was born and raised in Alberta and has one older sister.  Her father passed away shortly after she was born.  Her mother has since re-married and lives in Phoenix, AZ.

Marni works as an Outside Sales Manager for a large international media company.
