Aric and I met at work in 2011. After working together for a few years, we began dating. We moved in together in 2016 and were engaged and married in 2017 in a beautiful outdoor wedding.
We bought a house in 2017 and have spent the last year renovating it and making it our "home". We got a dog earlier this year, Bumper, who has been an absolute joy to us.
We both work full time but have flexible schedules that allow us to work from home when we want to.
We are active in our church and love spending time with our church family. We are active in church small groups and volunteer to serve whenever we can help.
To say we are best friends would be an understatement. We have loved our time as "just us" but are so ready to expand our family through adoption.
Our house is located in a quiet neighborhood that is kid friendly and close to the lake, parks, and some of the best schools in our city. We have a large fenced backyard with a pool and fire pit area as we love to be outside enjoying cookouts or playing with our dog. Our finished basement is great for movie or game nights with our church small groups. We love to entertain and we go all out for decorations on multiple holidays throughout the year.
Aric is an amazing person. He works hard to support our family, he is very supportive, and is the funniest guy I know. He is always making everyone laugh, he has the best personality!
Aric loves to fish, hunt, play golf and spend time out on the boat. He usually takes our dog Bumper with him wherever he goes. He goes out of his way to help people and is always up for something new. He even helps me with any pinterest project I come up with. :)
Aric was a track and field athlete in college, competing in the decathlon and he is a United States Olympic Athlete, representing the US in the Decathlon. Check out our photos to see Pictures of him competing!
Aric has 21 year old twins from a previous marriage and he was "super dad" when they were growing up, always taking them to sporting events, helping with homework, or helping them pursue their passions and dreams. He is so excited to raise a baby with me and go on this huge adventure again.
Christy is the most loyal and loving person I have ever met. When she says she is "all in" she truly is, gives 100% of herself.
Christy is a nurturer. She is always taking care of everyone. She is the best cook and is always trying new recipes. She also loves pinterest and is very crafty and loves to make things. She usually handles all of the cooking around the holidays, no matter how many people shes feeding. She loves the holidays, she goes overboard on decorating the house, inside and out, and she makes it all look like a hallmark movie.
She is very driven, she is successful in her field of work and is definitely a problem solver. She is always there to help anyone. When she sets a goal, she works tirelessly at it until she achieves it. I love how passionate she is about the people she loves and her interests.
Christy is my best friend and I look forward to watching her love our future child and see how she grows as a mother. She is so sweet and loving - she has the biggest heart of anyone I know. She's the love of my life and will make an amazing mama.
