Manitoulin dating service are we officially dating trailer
After a glass of wine at the most northern point of Low Island, just as the sun was setting, Julie gave in to her emotions. Seeing Nelson with his sons, and after meeting his friends and family, Julie was ready to officially commit.“It wasn’t just one moment when I fell in love with Nelson, but seeing him with his kids—what a great dad he is, his playfulness, his passion for helping kids as a teacher, our shared love of winter, the outdoors and Christmas—we are both Christmas freaks,” explained Julie. “Through all of life’s stressors, he was still there,” said Julie, noting Nelson’s support and love for her.He returned to settle on Manitoulin, teaching in Wikwemikong since 2007.“I came to the Island to find myself,” shared Julie.Meanwhile, Nelson was a Haweater, born and raised on Manitoulin.The son of Dale and Kathy Wood of Sheguiandah, Nelson attended Manitoulin Secondary School before going away for school and eventually becoming a teacher.“I married my best friend and I love coming home knowing that I get to spend time with him and our family,” said Julie, adding that their family also includes their two ‘fur babies’ Sparky and Atlas.
“We really lucked out.” A special element of their wedding was the couple’s cake.“Through a month of hiking we really learned a lot about each other,” said Julie.“I asked around about him and learned he had a good reputation too.SHEGUIANDAH—Playfulness, a love of winter and Christmas: three things that Nelson and Julie Rochefort-Wood discovered they shared four years ago when the couple met through a Little Current singles group Nelson started (and which this reporter wrote a promotional piece for at the time).“The first time I tried it (the singles group), it didn’t work,” said Nelson, laughing. I tried to organize it again a few months later on April 27, 2012 at the Little Current Legion. I had just moved to Manitoulin and didn’t know a lot of people.” Julie might not have been looking for love, but when she entered the Legion that night that’s what she found, she just didn’t know it yet.
