Hello and thank you for taking the time to get to know us.

From day one, parenting has been the most rewarding journey we have taken in our lives. We value diversity of experiences, people in our child's life, activities and cultures. We look forward to welcoming your little one into our fun-filled, laughter filled, silly and loving community of family and friends who are all important and will play a role in supporting and nurturing your child's growth.

Who We Are

We jokingly tell people we met on Craigslist, which is partially true. JP was living in a house on Capitol Hill with 4 other people and one moved out. We posted the room on Craigslist and the first person we interviewed was VC. We hit it off instantly as we talked and joked about riding bikes, backgammon and Sponge Bob. I thought to myself, "Yeah, this will work" and convinced my roommates to select VC.

We became instant friends through rock climbing and VC helping me through my first year teaching. We spent a lot of time together and after I moved out of the house several months later, started dating instantly.

Over the next several years, we had our ups and downs; lived together, traveled, loved, fought, broke up and then found each other again. We married in 2012 and the adventure has continued.

Our daughter, Effie, was born in 2014 and nothing makes us happier than being a loving and adventurous family.

And yes, we both go by our initials, which we did even before we met.

Adoption Diary

New Year!

Everyday I am thankful for each other, our health, food and home.  We had a wonderful holiday.  Many, many movies nights on the sofa, fires in the fireplace, playing with toys and of course, puppy snuggles!  Wishing you all the best in 2021!

Getting the Holidays Started

Went out to visit friends in a town called Leavenworth (to be sure, we all isolated and then i went and got tested prior).  Leavenworth is a beautiful “European Village” in WA.  The town was created with the theme and feel of a swiss mountain village.  Hope the lights and season is brightening up for you all.
