Although we had been introduced briefly a couple years before, we didn't really get to know one another until our friends connected us again at a Super Bowl party the winter of 2020. Soon after our first date the pandemic thrust the world into lock down and it wasn't long until we were saying that we had found "love in the time of Corona". After splitting our time between our "country" home (Marilyn's cottage in Bay Ridge) and our "city" home (Brian's historical home in downtown Annapolis), we moved in together the fall of 2020. We've very much enjoyed getting to know each other's friends and families and Brian has quickly adjusted to life with three grown children and four young grandchildren who affectionately call him, "Mr. B". Marilyn just as effortlessly fell in love with Brian's girls, Sophie (Sgt. Poopers) and Daisy.
