it began in 1997

Miriam and Aaron met on a warm spring evening after Aaron returned from living in Ireland. Within fifteen minutes, Aaron had picked up a guitar and the two were singing "Norwegian Wood" and "Closer to Fine" together.  Over the next decade, they sang together periodically and became good friends, although eleven years would pass before they went on their first date. On that fateful night, they confessed their love to each other and have been together as a couple for ten years and were married in 2012. 

Miriam has thirty years' experience working in food service and retail. She is currently a manager at Ye Olde Trail Tavern, and has worked at Peach's Grill, The Winds Cafe, Sunrise Cafe, and has done catering for Current Cuisine.
