We met online almost 10 years ago and have been together pretty much ever since. We have a lot of common values (we're both lawyers) and similar hobbies: we like to travel and have fun outdoors but really really love our down time.
Our values are important to us. We believe in education, for sure, but we also really want to raise a well-rounded and happy kid who's engaged with the world.
We live in Olympia, Washington. A city with a small town feel and sense of community that's close to nature, including the Olympic and Cascade mountains. But, we also have family in Seattle and Portland, which are very close by and offer big city amenities, medical services, and universities.
Olympia is a safe community with good public schools, parks for dogs and people, and beautiful water views.
