We were newlyweds awaiting the elusiveness of sleep one evening. As we waited to drift off we started discussing the numerous upcoming changes facing us. We spoke of career hunting for me, academic pursuits for him, and the goal of purchasing a home for our family.Before long, our conversation turned to aging, yacht clubs and retired life. It was then we decided that his middle name (Charles) along with a nickname given to me by him (BunBun) would be more senior friendly identities. In that quiet moment, alone in our newlywed apartment, we made a pact to be Charles & BunBun—an incredibly accomplished and utterly fabulous retired couple with a solid respect for the value of white pants and bold lipsticks.Hence, here we are... aspiring to be Charles & BunBun.
