About us

Our Story

April actually asked me to take her Xmas shopping. After a fun day at the mall, we had our first dinner at Round table pizza...so romantic! During dinner, Sean started choking on crushed red peppers and after that, April was in love. lol. Ever since then, they have enjoyed many experiences and adventures together.
