Ferndale has its fair share of lovebirds, so we decided to check in with a few of them before Valentine's Day and ask them to share relationship and date night secrets.
Today, we take a closer look at what makes Ferndale residents Tim and Amy Gattshall so sweet.
How long have you been together?
Met at work in May 2003 and the day that Tim put in his 2 week notice to leave the job we started dating. We were engaged February 2008, married May 2009. Now we have a beautiful 19-month-old son Tyler.
What’s the secret to a successful and happy relationship?
Being each other's best friend.
What famous couple would you compare yourselves to?
Monica and Chandler because Tim thinks he's funny and he's really not.
Why did you settle in Ferndale, and how long have you lived here?
Total of 11 years, buying our current bungalow in 2006.
We love the sense of community and proximity to independently owned bars, restaurants and mom & pop stores. We enjoy all the street festivals and culture the city has to offer.
What’s your favorite romantic night out in Ferndale and why?
It started as half-off Monday night dinners at the WAB and then it transitioned to ice cream at Treat Dreams and now its shopping at Modern Natural Baby!
