First off let me thank you for reading and, simultaneously welcome you here to Homestead Sweethearts. Naomi has surely given the two of us more than sufficient introductions, but if you haven’t guessed yet I am Avery, pleasure to meet you. Now, what have you as a potential reader have to look forward to sharing with Naomi and I here? Well friend lean back, for as I write this in the waning light of the dying candle with my feather quill I am planning many adventures for us to under take with one another.
Ok… so maybe this isn’t written with a quill scratching out my thoughts by the flickering light of a tallow candle (come on of course tallow, beeswax is expensive to use for lighting) but that sounds so much more romantic does it not? So through with all of these wonderful posts you will get to enjoy that my lovely Naomi writes, you will also get to partake (or suffer through) in some of my misadventures. The list of things to come are garden prep and planning for the season to come, a project repairing an older firearm from my Grandfather, some woodworking, the actual planting of the garden, hopefully the setup of a new shop, and some forestry (chainsawing). Again welcome and thank you, from Homestead Sweethearts this is Avery hope to see you back here.
Is that a real Tardis? The world may never know.
Oh how does one ever introduce themselves? Hello! My name is Naomi and my wonderful, loving fiancé is Avery (that is a matter of opinion). We just so happen to have started dating in High school and he hasn’t been able to get rid of me yet (please someone help me!). We both come from military families and grew up traveling around the United States. Our dads retired and what would you know, they were high school friends. We both inevitably ended up in our little tiny home-village (is that a real word? Oh well) and met when we were 8
He claims the first time we met I kicked a soccer ball at his head. It’s true. I just wanted to practice my drop kick! Ah love at first sight (she tried to kill me.. I still hold that the brain damage I received is how I was unable to escape her in time…), well not really. We grew up fighting and bickering every time we saw each other. We both ended up in high school band(The same one can you believe it!). He was a percussionist (Drumline, thank you very much) and I played the clarinet and did color guard (Yawn). This bratty freshmen named Creepy Kevin tried to hit on me and Avery helped me out of a hard spot. My best friend thought this would be the perfect time to screw with me and gave him my number. We have been talking ever since (Much to my chagrin).
A few months later in January we started dating for the first time. We broke up by march because Avery really didn’t want to go to his senior Prom(Stand by that, and still don’t. [Hey at least he made it to my senior prom]). He is a bit of a dick(yep). To be fair, I’m not much better. We had got back together for a few weeks and I broke up with him on his Graduation(In a text I might add). I’m really sweet. We had a hard time keeping apart (no restraining order can hold her) and ended up trying the friends thing. That lasted until October when he started showing up at my house without fail every Friday night to take me out on a date.
Avery and I Prom 2014
We got back together on November 15th 2013 and have been dating ever since (what was I thinking look at that date…. All my hunters know me now for thy name is fool). In August of 2016 he asked me to marry him. How could a girl resist (say “no”… duh)? That is the really, really, abbreviated story of our relationship. Cute right?
- Avery (aw, why don’t I get top billing my comments are what made this post).
Well it is my blog 😉
We really look forward to getting to know you and hoped you enjoyed getting to know a little bit about us. We would love for everyone to introduce themselves to us too!
