I think my success rate as a doll match maker is pretty good. There have been only two flops out of ten so far. Today, I want to show case my five favorite couples living in Dollton.
Darren and Grace Davis
Darren is a web designer. Grace is a florist and the owner of Bloom Service, a local flower shop. These two were made for each other…literally. Mattel created the Darren character to be Grace’s boyfriend, so naturally they make the perfect couple. Darren and Grace have one child- a son named Julian (age 5). Here Grace models one of the fashions from that combo pack I mentioned in my last post. I took two pictures, so you could see it with and without the jacket. The tee says LOVE and is a separate piece from the skirt.
Tory Amber Foreman
Dr. Matthew Foreman is an orthopedic specialist in sports medicine. He is one of the team physicians for the Atlanta Hawks. His wife,
Tory Amber, writes a column for the Arts & Entertainment section of the newspaper. She is also on the charity board for a local nonprofit. They have twin daughters, Macee and Makenna (age 6).
Tory Amber was an early birthday gift from the hubby. Squee! I
need to find her an articulated body.
Thomas and Camille Edwards
Dr. Edwards has his own practice, Dollton Family Medicine. Camille, a former accountant, is now a SAHM and PTA treasurer for their daughter’s elementary school. They have two children, Serena (age 6) and Thomas Junior, better known as Tommy (age 3). Camille is Grace’s older sister.
My first flop as a match maker was my attempt to pair Dr. Edwards with Baby Phat Chandra. There was NO chemistry whatsoever. Who knew such a thing was even possible? This was how I learned that just because I have two dolls paired in my mind, it’s no guarantee that it will work out in real (well, not quite real, but you know what I mean) life.
Jamal and Lena Joyner
Jamal is the pastor of the local church. His wife Lena used to be a teacher. Now she oversees the youth ministry and counsels victims of domestic violence. They have four children.
Marisa de la Cruz and Stanley Kirk
Marisa is a celebrity singer/songwriter who grew up in Dollton. She now resides in Atlanta. Since, Dollton is just outside of metro Atlanta, she visits whenever she can. Stanley, a music producer, worked with Marisa on her first two albums. The couple has been dating for almost a year.
