Our next Pott. Co. Couple, Johnny and Lindsy Brown, are on lucky year number 13! The couple met at the Nishna Renaissance Fair held in Hancock in October, 2002. At the time, Lindsy was still living in Des Moines and the couple made an effort to hang out some but after several months, Lindsy made the move back to Omaha. From there, Johnny took matters into his own hands with a conversation known among all their friends! Johnny simply said, “I heard you’re single?” She said she was and he replied, “Well, I’m interested” which led to their first date on March 12, 2003 and as they say in movies, the rest is history!
The couple took up residence in Johnny’s hometown of Oakland and were married on February 22, 2008 by a county court judge and had a reception at the Bohemian Café in Omaha. The Browns has since moved to Carson where Lindsy works for Fox Creek Fundraising and Johnny works at America’s Best Contacts and Eyeglasses in Council Bluffs. When they aren’t working, the twosome likes to listen to music, watch movies, walk around old parts of cemeteries, take long drives in the country so Lindsy can take photos of the scenery and moo at cows. I can also attest that you will see them at most area small town events, too! Needless to say, they are a fun-loving duo always up for something new! In fact, Lindsy has started painting with watercolor and acrylics while Johnny is off performing weddings as an officiant and he also loves to promote local bands online. I dare to say there are few dull moments in the Brown household!
If you’ve ever seen Mr. and Mrs. Brown out and about, you won’t be the least bit shocked by their marital advice as they are generally some of the most jovial people you’ll run into! Johnny and Lindsy’s advice to all couples is to hold hands often and say “I love you” at least twice a day. Clearly, they take their own advice! And the world is better for it!
Thanks, Johnny and Lindsy for showing us true love and for loving Pott. Co. You sure know how to put love into the world!
