Rashaunda & LaRese
Our Story: We met at Black Box Fix in Cleveland Heights. Rashaunda came in while I was eating and picking up some Cedar Point tickets. It was something about her that grabbed me. I asked her cousin Toya, my business partner, to hook me up. Next, I called her best friend Miesha from Nulife to give me her number so I could give her a call and the rest is history! We began talking and would stay on the phone until the next morning. Each time we had a date over the course of that year, every restaurant quickly got to know us because we would shut the place down.
Before I asked Rashaunda to marry me, we had been dating for nearly 4 years. But I knew it was time because when I told my kids what I was considering, they both smiled and were super excited!
