Rebecca and David unite

David lures Rebecca back to Pittsburgh with a proposal to share their lives, two cats, an old car, and a business. They live out of their office, work late, cook up a storm, win a few awards, and marry in 1999. They celebrate and finally move out of the office, inherit a mystery garden, tiny kitchen, and working fireplace!

They currently live, work, and play together near Frick Park – thankfully, not all in the same place!
