Roderick Leonard Lee relocated to Atlanta, GA from Irvington, New Jersey in 1998. A very charismatic, free spirited lover of music and all-time great debater; Rod prides himself on having the most sophisticated playlist out of all his peers. Although, he will cringe during discussions of romance, he secretly enjoys all the sappy ideas that Monet suggests. He has a profound interest in books and documentaries. If the choice was his, every modern radio station would play Gil Scott Herring and Roy Ayers.
Monet Antoniette Waller moved to Atlanta, GA from Linden, New Jersey to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations Management at Clark Atlanta University in 2005. After graduation, Monet secured a career with the Neiman Marcus Group. One of her biggest accomplishments was the completion of her mission trip to Ngaamba, Kenya as a volunteer for a Christian medical relief team. She loves to travel, shop and watch romantic comedies on Saturday nights while drinking hot tea.
Their story began one beautiful Sunday afternoon in December of 2009. They met at a Christmas Party and instantly became friends. Developing a friendship first, they spent many hours talking on the phone like teenagers in high school. Rod and Mone't discussed past relationships and future ambitions only to find that they had similar “war wounds” from love. It’s amazing how love will find you, totally captivate you and transform you all in the blink of an eye. Who knew that between them they would create a love so substantial that it would challenge them to become better people to each other and to themselves. After five years of dating, it was time to make things official. They are beyond blessed to share a love that they once only dreamed of.
