About Scott & Kristy Nilsson...
& How We Met...
Kristy was a dancer ,
a choreographer and dance teacher .
Scott was Executive Director for Briarcliff Oaks, and
happily served older adults at
two nonprofit senior communities for a really
long time... but after nearly 24 years - Scott and his brother
decided it was time to take a hike ; so his beloved residents
and staff threw him a really big
party, gave him a bunch of awards ,
and now he's focused on the road ahead.
We head for water at every opportunity, with a
book and a laptop, and couldn't be happier together.
How We Met...
In 1999, Scott and Kristy were both living
in Atlanta. Scott's avocation was inline speed skating
and helping co-ordinate long distance road races .
Kristy was studying and performing with Atlanta Ballet .
They were both bored with the same old routine .
On Labor Day, Scott went to a post-race party for the
US10K and it happened that Kristy was a guest.
On her arrival , a mutual friend told her a former
ballet dancer named Scott was in the kitchen
preparing Sashimi . They talked and
flirted late into the night, and - although
they didn't start dating for five months, they agree,
it was love at first sight . Kristy
likes to say – she chased him until he caught
her... Scott ’s version is that the minute he
met her, he knew she was trouble –
or that he was in trouble –
or that they would both
get into trouble together .
On August 25, 2001 - they did . . .
