Real Couple of the Week: Leigh and Nathan
Status: Married August 3, 2013
Careers: Nathan’s a certified public accountant; Leigh has a (super-sweet) gig as a freelance cake designer.
How They Met: They dated for nine years, but their beginning is unclear: “We can’t remember because it’s been so long! We met in elementary school and grew up in the same neighborhood.”
Unwind Time: The two spend time relaxing with homemade dinners, movie nights and, of course, wine.
Pets: The newlyweds have a mini Goldendoodle named Pippa.
Relationship Rule: “No rules—just love!”
Pet Peeves: She’s stubborn. And instead of being early, he’s always right on time.
Spouse Secrets: Nate hasn’t gone without coffee in three years. Leigh’s guilty of the same thing—but with chocolate.
Baby Clock: No new family additions for the next couple of years
Guilty Pleasures: Leigh loves trashy television and sweets, while Nathan’s a fan of the occasional stogie.
In 10 Years They’ll Be: “Settled into our home with our kids and our dogs”
Hobbies: They unwind by cooking together, reading and walking their pup.
Fantasy Splurge: Not buying—but rather building—their own home
