Meet Katherine and Richard Callan and their sweet daughter, Caroline! They have been married for five years and reside in Savannah, GA. Where Richard is in his second year of pediatric residency at Memorial Hospital and Katherine is the lead designer at a commercial furniture dealership.
Using only three words, Richard described Katherine as organized, a planner, and thoughtful; Katherine described Richard as selfless, smart, and funny.
On a typical Saturday you can find this couple spending the morning on Tybee Island until little Caroline naps. Then going out to dinner possibly at one of their favorites, The Pink House, and ending the night with an episode of New Girl while eating some Haagan Das.
What do you love about your marriage most?
Katherine: We are so similar and I don’t think I know anyone who understands me as well as he does. We were raised the same and went. Richard and I are just always on the same page. It’s so nice to feel like we’ve known each other so well and for so long.
Richard: I can always count on Katherine. She’s the person I can care for and help with me on things. Especially with the addition of Caroline, I really appreciate how much of a team player she is. I can talk out things with her and whatever the case is I know she is there for me. I appreciate that we are a good team.
What do you do that leads to your best communication?
Katherine: We make a priority to sit down and eat dinner together. Sitting and talking about our days. Because we are similar we relate and discussing those thoughts with one another. When you are in a disagreement you have different patterns. You have to learn and recognize those patterns.Richard: I would normally try to immediately fix it, especially when we were dating. Just trying to relate to her. Definitely show I’m listening, or clarifying how I am misunderstanding. Being transparent.
Tell us something goofy about your relationship.
We don’t allow ourselves to go dancing [at a wedding] until three couples are out on the dance floor.
What does your spouse do to make you feel most loved?
Katherine: When I just need a break he just picks up the slack and takes care of it and doesn’t even have to be asked. It makes me so thankful for him. He makes me so relaxed and calm and gives opportunity to allow me to relax.
Richard: She makes our house a safe zone. Her preparing meals; it's something to come home to. Putting things together and putting our house together, planning things and helping to take care of Caroline. She’s very much a person who can make a home and she makes it a place to come to enjoy.
