Her: "It was tough trying to make it where there are no jobs available and having to make the decision to move your whole family. We transplanted from West Virginia where there really wasn't much available, and we were working two-and-a-half hours apart and having to see each other on the weekends. On to Atlanta, and he's working two separate jobs by himself, and then we moved up here."
"What made you decide on Easton?"
Her: "We'd actually driven through Easton when we were on 22."
Him: "I used to teach in Hackettstown in the summers and I'd drive through Easton to avoid the toll bridge and I always thought it was a really adorable little town…"
Her: "…And he told me he was going to live there some day!"
Him: "Yeah, that's true, and years later I was looking for new jobs because I didn't like Atlanta and I found there was one in Bethlehem, so I applied for it, not realizing anything about the geography of Pennsylvania that Bethlehem and Easton were so close together. Then when I remembered that it was here, I was like, 'That's great!'"
