Who We Are
We met on New Year’s Eve, 2015 when our friend groups all went out together.
We all went to a Diner after the party, and that is when Chuck first asked Kat for her number. He called, the very next day...and never stopped calling. As husband and wife, we understand that a good marriage requires thoughtfulness, to know how to make your partner laugh, kissing often, prayer, challenging each other, learning new things together, supporting one another emotionally and spiritually, and helping each other grow into best
versions of ourselves.
We met once we were more established and we appreciate and understand the value of waiting for the “right fit.” We spent many hours learning the importance of care, mutual respect, cherishing each other, sacrifice, reciprocity, and renewal prior to our wedding day. We feel that we complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and are blessed to have one another. We are looking forward to sharing our child with both of our families, teaching and guiding them through the ups and downs of life, seeing the beauty in the diversity of our world, and to appreciate his or her culture as well as ours.
How did August go by so fast? I am grateful that the heat is a little more bearable and honestly I love the fall. Since I teach, next week we go back to school for a week of meetings and setup before the kids reappear on Sept 4th. Every new school year means a chance to start over and become better at what I do. Not many professions offer that, so I am grateful even if it means giving up my lazy days of summer snoozing, painting and relaxing. Thanksgiving and winter break after all, are not too far away:)
Going to Vermont last week was so relaxing. It was just what we needed. The City is exciting, but sometimes we need to relax and recharge at a slower pace, and surrounded by nature. We love exploring new places and of course, eating lol. It felt good to breathe in fresh mountain air, and see the gorgeous flowers and trees in full bloom. There are so many amazing places to explore…we are fortunate to be able to do so. On the way home, we stopped at The Vermont Country Store. It has a ton of nostalgic toys, country furnishings, cute pajama sets and candy. I bought a Raggedy Ann doll and two of my favorite childhood books: The Little Engine that Could and The Poky Little Puppy. Now our future baby already has a little box on the living room floor filled with some presents to cherish and enjoy:).
