Welcome to our Journey!
Just like the majority of the country, and the world for that matter, we are a couple of people who are on this journey of life, trying to figure it out one day at a time. By reading our blog, you’ll see that we are very passionate about a few things, our children, our love, and our future. The thing is, we definitely don’t profess to have it all figured out about any of those. So we welcome you along for the ride as we learn more about ourselves, each other and life in general.
Now to provide a little insight into who we are. Our story is not atypical by any means, so no fun and fireworks there. We are a couple of college sweethearts who fell in love very early in life and started a family right away. We now have four amazing children who we work hard every day to secure a better future for. Our family loves sports, in fact our two oldest children are very heavy into basketball, so you can typically find us court side playing the role of #1 and #2 fan while we corral and try to keep the other two entertained. Like most, we also love to travel and expose our children to new and exciting experiences.
To fund all of our crazy shenanigans, you will find us punching the clock in corporate positions for a large non-profit organization. We both love what we do, as we are presented with new challenges day in and day out to keep it interesting. Our goal in this area of our lives, is to excel in our careers through hard work and subject mastery. We are life-long students when it comes to our professions and our thirst for knowledge and hard-work is finally starting to pay off.
As a couple, we’ve had several ups and downs in life, some that have threatened to stifle our pursuit towards earning the American dream. It’s through those trials that we feel we have grown closer and learned more about self-discipline, taking calculated risks and making smart choices that have helped us to hopefully right the course and get back on track. We are far from perfect, and as you will see, there are many lessons we are still learning along the way while defining what success looks like for our family.
For us, the fireworks don’t come from the story, but from each chapter that we create with our family. We feel that if we are leading lives where we are fully engaged as a family and feeling empowered to be the best versions of ourselves, all while enjoying the fruits of our labor, then we may be on to something special.
Thank you for joining us on this adventure. We hope you are able to learn something new along the way!
