We met while attending high school in a tiny eastern Washington town. I had just moved to town, and nervously walked into my first-period English class during my freshman year. And there he was! A funny, sweet, super smart, friendly, and hot guy! We became friends and stayed that way throughout high school. We even went on a date once.
After high school we did not stay in touch. We bumped into one another at a friend's wedding three years later. In 1992, 1 1/2 years after our friend's wedding, we had our own.
Since that time, we've traipsed around the country & parts of the world together. I'm a photographer and a complete nut about architecture and all things mid-century. The Man is a veterinarian and has the same addiction to modernist styles.
We have a super great dog, Argus (his fans call him Gus), and two sweet kitties, Pogo and Etta Mae. We love working on our home, mountain biking, road tripping with Argus, and searching for mid-century treasures at estate and rummage sales.
We have a great time exploring the world together, and are now beginning our biggest adventure--becoming parents. Our sweet Little Man came home May 11, 2011.
He's a super dynamo, who hasn't met a piece of furniture that he hasn't tried to scale. He's got a smile that melts your heart, and infectious laugh, and a great sense of humor. He was born in South Korea and has a serious love of bananas, mandarin oranges, and peanut butter.
This blog started as a way to connect with other adoptive families, but it's morphing into more than that. We believe in positive parenting, eating well, living a healthy lifestyle, doing good things for others, great books, finding inspiration, living an authentic and honest life, and the pursuit of happiness.
And we also believe in learning new things everyday, which is where you come in!
Pixie, The Man and Little Man too!
