It was the fall of 2009, Shannon was at the restaurant with a group of rowdy friends. Julie remembers hearing her laugh all the way from the kitchen. Those of you that know Shannon, know this laugh. As Julie tells it, something compelled her to see who was making such a noise. It was literally love at first sight. Julie sent the table a dessert, compliments of the "chef," then managed to stroll by in her chef's uniform as the restaurant was closing. Long story short, Julie joined the girls for drinks after and the two have been together ever since!
