Our Story

Welcome to our blog! Here's the quick and dirty about us:

Chad and I met on our first day of college at Utah State University. We started studying together, since we were in the same math class and lived in the same apartment building. But, those late-night study sessions quickly turned into excuses to hang out together. And that's how our story began. After two years of dating, we tied the knot on August 17, 2002 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

We currently live in Tucson, Arizona. We moved here after living in South Florida for five years, where Chad graduated from medical school and completed his internship year of residency. He is now working for the University of Arizona completing a three-year anesthesiology residency. I was fortunate enough to keep my job from Florida and now work remotely from home. I am the manager of advertising and communications for the business school at Nova Southeastern University.

And--most importantly--Chad and I are thrilled to be parents! Our little angel Reece was born on Jan. 26, 2010 and our handsome little Jace was born on June 30, 2011. We are so blessed to be the mom and dad of such darling and sweet kids.

10 Year Anniversary at the Oregon Coast

Chad and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on August 17, 2012. A decade under our belts...we are practically veterans at this whole marriage thing! :) We celebrated our anniversary at Cannon Beach, which is on the coast of Oregon. My mom and aunt stayed with the kids (THANKS GRANDMA!) so Chad and I could get away for a few days together...and it was amazing! Our hotel was right on the beach overlooking the infamous Haystack Rock. Yes, for all of you Goonie fans, that is the rock where One-Eyed Willie kept his hidden treasure! :) We were a bit surprised to be at a beach that was so cold (we were totally spoiled living in South Florida) but fell in love with the quaint beauty of the Oregon Coast instantly. Chad was crazy and went swimming in the ice cold water...but only stayed in for about 30 seconds before rushing back to our campfire to warm up. Roasting marshmallows and eating smores on the beach was lots of fun. And we enjoyed jogging along the beach, getting a couples massage (which Chad totally enjoyed!), eating yummy seafood, sight-seeing, and just being together. 10 years flew by...and I am so happy to be stuck with my wonderful hubby for the rest of eternity. Te Amo Mucho Chaddie!
