Strong couple looking forward to a life of family travels, Disney ears, packed lunches, love and laughter.
Thank you for taking time to get to know our family. With great respect we welcome you.
From the time we met 16 years ago, we've wanted children. We are ready to share our travels, hiking adventures, our wonderful extended family, roller coaster rides and movie nights.
We hope that by sharing our life, you will see the love and laughter we share, our amazing family and friends, and know that we have endless love and opportunities to give to children we hope to welcome. We are ready with open arms!

Who We Are
We take each other’s best qualities and let them shine.
Our story began in 2003 while spending a night on the town. Eric just moved and was being shown his neighborhood. I was talking to a friend, who happened to know Eric’s roommate. We were immediately smitten.
Our first date was to my best friend’s birthday party. Eric met my closest friends from college, which took some bravery!
Our second date was just the two of us. We learned more about each other over dinner. We discovered that we shared many interests and had similar life goals. Family is extremely important to both of us. This was the first time we shared our dreams of starting a family. This commonality drew us closer and we’ve been happily together ever since.
We married in Laguna Beach, surrounded by family and our closest friends. Our relationship is filled with love, trust, laughter and adventure.
We enjoy traveling. We spend summers seeking new adventures. We are lucky to have the ability to see the world and have new experiences. We also enjoy hiking, camping, and spending time with our nieces and nephews. Most of all, we enjoy spending quality time together at home. We are excited to share these experiences with our future children.
After spending 16 years together, we have a good understanding of why our relationship works. It takes more than sharing similar interests. We value each other. We love and support one another to make each other’s best qualities shine. We know we can trust and rely on one another, even when times are rough.
We know we will be amazing parents. We are excited to share the good values instilled in us by our own families. We have a lot of love in this home to share.
Today is Eric’s Birthday!
We celebrated yesterday with friends and family. About 26 of us took over Eric’s favorite neighborhood hangout for food and to play classic board games. Lots of old friends, new friends and family mingled together. All of the kids had a blast playing games and then hide and seek.
Happy Birthday Eric! This year is going to be a great year!
