Emily Farris is a cookbook publicist by day, and a writer and provocateur the rest of the time. A Kansas City native, she moved to Brooklyn immediately after graduating high school in 2000. While there, she earned a bachelor of liberal arts from The New School and published a cookbook. Emily returned to her hometown in 2009.
Kyle Hopkins is a high school English teacher, originally from Prairie Village, KS. Before meeting Emily he taught English in Seoul, South Korea. He holds two bachelor degrees from the University of Kansas and a master’s degree in education from Pittsburg State University.
We met in 2010. In the video of our engagement, Kyle recounts the story. Together, we like to eat as much as we possibly can, drink whiskey, talk baby talk to our dog Jack, listen to good music and plan our future family farm.
Here’s one of our engagement pictures, taken by our talented friend, Jennifer Wetzel:
