Welcome Friends

Our dating journey began when we officially met in early 2021. Our paths crossed many times over the years prior. We both raised our children in South Tampa and have many mutual friends.

We were engaged on August 6, 2021 at Molly Malone’s on Davis Islands. Many of you were there for the surprise, thank you.

Right away we knew that this was special. We were meant to discover one another at fifty. Our new life adventures were meant to be shared. We are both optimists, positive, silly and nice. We love family, friends, and “what if?” We are open to life and discovery.

As our tale is at its beginning we will be gearing up for many new adventures and hope you can join us along the way.

Family is the biggest blessing this union will foster. We are both blessed to have an abundance of relatives and it’s going to be great to bring you all together. We are so proud of our kids and look forward to sharing the future with them: Lionel’s daughter, Lillie is a junior at the University of Tampa; His son, Laander is a junior at Plant High School; and Christy’s son, Andrew is a junior at Florida State University.

We look forward to seeing all of you soon.
