Together is our FAVORITE place to be!
We met in high school and the sparks flew. Quickly we became inseparable and haven't been apart since! We were married five years later, in an outdoor ceremony surrounded by nature and the people we loved most. Life together has been a journey filled with adventure, joy and sometimes heartache, but always love and respect. We are best friends and share core values of honesty, respect and compassion. We feel so blessed to share this life together.
We both come from large extended families, and have always wanted a home packed with the love of a big family! Adoption captured our hearts with the adoption of our oldest son, Jonah, and we have sincere compassion for his birth mother. Adoption is the perfect way to complete our family! We are so excited with the possibility of growing our family through adoption again! We have so much MORE LOVE to give!
Every spring we visit the baby farm animals at the zoo, splash in puddles, and plant a flower garden
In the summer, we visit the ocean and family, go camping, and pick berries. We spend as much time outside as we can by visiting parks and lakes all around our beautiful state.
Fall is our favorite season! We love visiting the apple orchard, picking pumpkins, and hiking. Dressing up for halloween and pumpkin carving is so much fun!
Every winter, we bake cookies, make gingerbread men and a gingerbread house, visit the Ice Castles, and cut down a fresh Christmas tree. We also love to go sledding.
Our home is more than just a house, it's where we cuddle, craft, play, learn, and dance together. Our home has a sunny yard with a playhouse and swings. We love to barbecue in the summer on our patio! We live in a family friendly neighborhood, with a park and nature trail directly across the street. We live at the end of a secluded and safe street that we enjoy riding bikes on all summer and fall.
