Shawn Townsend & Symone Sanders: Dating, Wedding, Kids
One of the very few benefits that Shawn and his longtime partner Symone had in this lockdown was that they got to spend a lot of time with each other.
Talking to Washingtonian, Symone revealed her favorite quarantine activity was dinner with her supportive beau. She further revealed,
“I used to be on the road 22-25 out of the 30 days in a month, so having dinner together is not something we used to do very often. It has been a blessing to be able to sit down at our dinner table, pour libations, and just talk about our virtual workdays, the news, and catch up on our favorite shows.”
Although the couple had not exchanged wedding vows as of 2020, it didn’t stop them from supporting each other in their work.
