ABOUT THE COUPLE

I became best friends with Jerad’s sister while I was in nursing school. She and I played on a kickball team with nursing school friends, along with Jerad and some of his friends. Jerad and I became friends, started dating, and quickly fell in love. Our relationship has always had a strong foundation based on faith and family. We still consider ourselves lucky to share the same values and opinions on the most important aspects of life: religion, prioritizing family and wanting children.

About a year after we began dating, Jerad cooked a steak dinner at his house for me. After dinner, we were going to watch a movie, but he proposed instead! We sat and talked for an hour before we called anyone which was special to us. We then called our family and close friends and met some friends out that night to celebrate. It was a fun, low key night—the way we like it! We had a large wedding in the church I grew up attending. All our family and friends were there to celebrate with us. It was a beautiful and perfect ceremony. Afterward, we had a reception with dinner and a band. It was one of the most fun nights we have had together. We felt so loved, and we talked to and celebrated with the people we loved and even had time to dance and enjoy the night ourselves

ABOUT OUR HOME

We have lived in our house for six years and absolutely love it. Our house has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a large backyard. It has a small upstairs that serves as a playroom. We also enjoy spending time in our back yard and entertaining family and friends.

One of the reasons we moved into our neighborhood was because of the community. We have a very active neighborhood with a civic club, moms club, garden club, and more. We know so many of our neighbors, and there is a culture of friendliness, warmth, and focus on family. The moms club has fun activities for kids, including Breakfast with Santa, a Fourth of July Parade, and an Easter egg hunt, just to name a few. We have lots of young children in the neighborhood including many children who go to Claire and Grace’s school. My mom and sister, Jerad’s sister and brother all live within two miles from us. The girls now have four cousins who live close by! Our families are all growing and we are so thankful to have so much family near. Our church is only five minutes away. There is where we attend church Sundays and where Claire goes to school. We are lucky to have a huge community surrounding us.
