about us

We are born and raised Marylanders.  We love Annapolis, crabs, Old Bay, and the O's (well that one is more me... I married a Cardinals fan).  We met when I was 12 and he was 14, and that's when it all started.  Fast forward through many on-again-off-again stories, and the 2 of us became the 4 of us:
We added Winston and Jack in 2008.  We love them way too much (if that's even possible).

Skip ahead another year, and you will find us here:
A proposal on 6 Sept 2009, while on RnR from a 10 month deployment to Iraq.  Did I mention I married a Marine?

That  brings us to our next stop:

After that we settled into married life at our first duty station as husband and wife - Camp Lejeune.  2011 brought another deployment.  This time 6 months in Afghanistan:
Yes, he left when I was 30 weeks pregnant.  No, he didn't get to come home for the birth of our son.  But they got to finally meet when Dad came home:
We spent a wonderful year together as a family, then we learned of our next duty station.

It was a big move and we are currently residing here:
In case you can't tell, that's the Australian flag.

That's right, this red-blooded American family is now living in the land down under.

And there you have it!  The severely abridged version of how we came to be a Marine family, with a little man, and 2 awesome dogs.  This is our life.  These are our moments.  Semper Fi!
