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 exploring 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 we have been training her since she was 8 weeks old. She’s super smart and we hope she gets to be a guide dog for someone who is blind.
We also love gardening—we grow veggies, fruit, and flowers. We 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.
Over the weekend we sailed our boat to a neighboring town and stayed on the boat for a night! It’s a little bit like camping but on the ocean
For Nadia’s recent birthday, we celebrated by hosting an on-the-grill grilled cheese party! We had several kinds of bread and cheese and lots of different toppings. Our friends got to make their own creations that Jon grilled up! Everyone loved it and we’ll definitely do it again! We love having fun themed parties and celebrations with the people we love!
