35 Years, 35 Memories #13/14: Engagements


Lori Bullard writes: “My husband and I met for the first time at the Cheese Board. It was twenty years ago on the Monday following the Thanksgiving holiday. At that time, they were open for breakfast and we both stopped in for respective business meetings. At the end of his meeting he came over to our table and said, “How do you guys rate? You got to have breakfast with this pretty lady and I had to have breakfast with these two ugly guys” (referring to his clients). Everyone laughed and he walked out the door. As he was passing by the big window in front of the restaurant, I actually thought to myself, “There could be my future husband just walking away…”. I asked the staff working that day if anyone knew who he was. They came up empty, no clue.

Two weeks later I bumped into one of the staff members while Christmas shopping at Meadowood. She told me the guy I asked about the other morning stopped in recently and left his business card. He requested, “If you see her come in again, please give her my card and have her call me.” I did and the rest is history.

Eighteen months later we were engaged. It took about a week to get my engagement ring setting back from the jeweler. When it was ready, Rich suggested he present it to me at the place we met. Attached is a token photo taken that very happy special day. I have been a loyal customer all these years. I would have had them cater our wedding, but we were married out of town. The Cheese Board has impeccable service and I always leave with a happy belly. This place will continue to have a sentimental place in my heart. Congratulations on 35 Years!!”

Jamie Krahne writes: “My favorite memory … meeting my soon-to-be husband, Joe Kulikowski, at The Cheese Board. We were both having lunch (separately) and noticed each other. Almost five years later, we eat there at least once a week (usually more) and are getting married next month.”

Such a great memories and we love being a part of their lives. Love the photo of Lori and Rich!
