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 . . .
