We were married on July 10, 2010 in Texas, and on July 19th unloaded our first box at our new home in Orlando. Then almost a year later on June 8, 2011 we unlocked the door to home-ownership (ha, see what I did there?) in Charlotte, NC. The Messmann pack consists of me (Tori), Stephen, Gus, Corbin, and JD (human, human, dog, dog, cat). Stephen and I met in college at Texas A&M University. We both grew up in Texas, but neither of us was born there. Stephen works for Siemens Energy and I work at our church. I love to read, Stephen loves to watch sports. We like hanging out with the animals and doing things around our house. Our lives are pretty simple, but every once in a while we like to break out the passports and go on an adventure.
