Who We Are
We met in college and it was love at first sight–for Jon :). He asked Nadia for her number and she said no! But we kept running into each other and soon started dating. Loving each other is the easiest and best thing we’ve ever done.
We’re both passionate about our careers, but we know what’s truly important in life and we never sweat the small stuff. We’re silly and easy going. We love being outside and creating new things. We like to travel, especially to National Parks, and explore new cities. We have a piece of art from every place we’ve been!
We love spending quiet time with each other and also having noisy and chaotic get-togethers with all our friends and family! We have a BIG circle of wonderful people and are surrounded by so much love.
We have two dogs who are the light of our lives! We rescued our a 4-year-old Aussie mix from a local shelter. He is super gentle, incredibly wise, and a big mush. We are also fostering an energetic 1-year-old black Lab puppy. She’s a guide dog in-training and since she was 8 weeks old we have been teaching her good behavior. She’s super smart and we hope she gets to be a guide dog for someone who is blind.
We’re also HUGE nerds about gardening. Every year we grow veggies, fruit, and flowers. We also go to the farmer’s market every weekend and are always learning about ways to help the environment.
Family traditions are important to us and we’re looking forward to creating some with our kids, like making homemade pasta on Valentine’s day, hiking in the mountains on New Years, and donating to charities every Christmas.
We spent this weekend in upstate New York hiking and exploring the little towns in the area. We hiked to a beautiful waterfall, ate great food, had good convos, and played cards ☺️
For Easter we gathered with a few family members for the first time in a long time! We’re grateful that the new coronavirus vaccines made that possible. We made peach cobbler with peaches from a local orchard that we prepped and froze last summer. It was a big hit
