She’s a senior graphic designer from the Twin Cities. He’s a project leader and engineer from Milwaukee. She’s creative, loves reading, sipping a latte (make that a decaf) by the lake, anything Disney, snowball fights and reality TV. He’s logical, enjoys soccer, volleyball, camping—basically anything outdoors—and hates reality TV.
We met during our freshman year of college while living on the same floor in the lakeshore dorms at UW–Madison. Then we fell in love. In the whirlwind after that we graduated from college, moved in together, got married, moved to Milwaukee and bought our first home a few blocks away from the sandy shores of Lake Michigan.
First came our cat-baby named Eva, and she is a talkative little lady. Sometimes we think she is part dog (she plays fetch, comes when you call her and knows how to sit on command). Henry is obsessed with her, but knows not to bother her too much. She isn’t the biggest fan of having a toddler around, but she tolerates him to the best of her ability.
Henry arrived in November 2013. We were so blessed to have him after a year of trying to conceive, a miscarriage and a long pregnancy. We got through the newborn phase without too much trouble. Next up: Potty training and the terrible twos!
And introducing Baby #2!
Henry is so excited to be a big brother, and we are so excited to expand to a family of four! We can’t wait to meet our little GIRL, who is due on March 22, 2016.
