Who We Are
We both grew up in Iowa, where we met in college during summer break, and we felt right away that we had something special. We married in 2009 at the botanical garden of Des Moines, Iowa, surrounded by all of our loved ones. After graduating college we moved to California and have made it our home since. We both always knew we wanted children, and after putting some roots down in California we were blessed to start our family with Jules.
We adopted our daughter Jules as a newborn in 2017. She’s a curious, playful, caring three (and a half) year old who loves painting, playing soccer, and going to the zoo. She can’t wait to be a big sister.
We have so much fun growing together as a family and spending time with one another. Between regular visits from our parents, and visiting siblings and cousins, we have a rich and supportive family. Things we love doing together are going to the pool, taking walks to the duck pond, camping in the redwoods, and playing board games. We also love traveling together, from weekend trips to the ocean, to a family vacation in Disneyland, to exploring the coasts of Ireland together. But, no matter where we are, we are always at home in each other’s hearts.
Our life together is built on mutual love, respect, and honesty, and we strive to instill those values in our children as well. Our greatest wish is to provide a safe home filled with unconditional love, where our child can have fun, laugh, and create memories full of warmth. We believe it is our responsibility to provide a well-rounded upbringing for our children so they can achieve their dreams, no matter how big they are.
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us. We would love to hear from you, and we are here to talk to you at any time if you would like to know more about us.
