So with out further ado: introducing the Castles!

We Castles hail from sunny Southern California. We met in College studying musical theater. We fell in love while playing opposite each other in the musical Baby. Shortly after graduating I moved to NYC, and thus began our 2 year and 8 month long distance relationship. We made it to the other side with Mr. Castle finally joining me in NYC. He proposed on January 1st 2011 on the rim of the grand canyon! Of course there is much more to be said about our story but I'll leave it at that for now!
Why Castle? Well there were/are soooo many great choices in the magic/fairy tale generation it was hard to choose! We decided on castle because it has to do with our love of a couple things:
We are both huge Harry Potter nerds and we can't wait to visit the wizarding world of Harry Potter someday.

We have both been enthralled by Disney since we were very young. The movies, the parks, the mouse, we love it all. We also have both worked for the company. Many of our first outings together involved trips to Disneyland and when we come home to Cali we always try to stop in for a visit. We may even be making a trip to see a Disney Castle on our honeymoon...

I also loved the Castle icon because well, Princesses live in Castles! Being the only girl with three brothers I often feel like the princess of the family :)

I am so looking forward to sharing our story with you all. I am honored to be a part of this fabulous group of ladies and this amazing hive. Thanks for having me!!!
