Who We Are
We both were born and raised in Michigan with a parent that was a teacher. We both attended Northern Michigan University where we met during Band Camp; Carrie's first and Douglas' third. After Douglas graduated from NMU, he moved to the Detroit MI area to start a new job while Carrie continued in school. We both moved to Minnesota due to a job relocation before the beginning of Carrie's last year at NMU.
We are not what you would call party people, in fact we find enjoyment in the slower things in life. We enjoy spending time talking and visiting with our neighbors on someone's deck or patio. We also enjoy going to the movies or watching TV at home all snuggled up. Something we try to do every year is attend a Minnesota Vikings game in person. In addition to having fun at or near home, we love to travel, whether it is a road trip or flying to a new international destination. Douglas loves to spend his free time remodeling the house and Carrie enjoys birding and volunteering at the wildlife refuge.
We cherish spending time together while still giving each other our own personal space. Now that we live closer to work than in the past, we are able to spend more quality time with each other at home instead of in the car. We plan on continuing this closeness as we build our family to let our new child or children know they are surrounded by love and will always be protected. The best way we spend time together however is on our travels. Those can be the best of memories and experiences.
We currently have 2 adorable dogs named Aspen and Willow that we love tremendously. They are a big part of our family and can make even the worst of days bright. A new child, or children, being added to our family will have the joy of growing up with these beautiful puppies.
