Thom Watson and Jeff Tabaco first discovered each other’s blogs in early 2003. After reading and commenting for a few months, they first met in person that June, and have been together ever since. Jeff and Thom became registered domestic partners on February 13, 2009, and became engaged on Valentine’s Day. They are currently planning an autumn 2009 wedding in San Francisco.
