Their Story

In the bustling city of Baltimore, amidst the uncertainties of 2020, fate intervened in the lives of Paul and Lisa through the swipe of a dating app. Paul, stationed nearby with the Navy, and Lisa, a dedicated travel ICU nurse at Johns Hopkins, found themselves drawn together in a city that was both new and unfamiliar to them.


Their first date, a spontaneous food and bar crawl through Lisa’s neighborhood of Fells Point. This set the stage for what would become an unforgettable love story. It was a night filled with laughter, shared stories, and an instant connection that neither could deny. Despite the challenges of navigating lockdowns and the uncertainties of a pandemic, their bond only grew stronger.
