Our Story

June 24th, 2012

Graeme and I met in 2006 when we both worked at the same local advertising agency. I was a receptionist, he was the token cute office guy (trés Pam and Jim). Both recently single, it wasn’t long until our simple officemate crushes blossomed into a full-blown romance.

Fast forward to September 2010, and we’re officially married! In the interest of brevity, you can find further engagement details here. We had a beautiful wedding at the Stillwell House in Tucson, Arizona – surrounded by a multitude of friends, family, and loved ones. The day was perfect even with each insignificant mishap and it was easily the best day of my life.

Mosey on further to early Fall 2011 – we buy our first big home. THE home. Our project. Our castle. Our mortga…Our castle! With 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a large front and back yard with pool, this is the home we’ve built in our minds. Who knew our minds built it in 1947? The only detail we notice about the house (once we saw past the scary electrical wiring) is that it feels a little…empty.

Being my typical, overachieving, neurotic self, I could fix this. A little planning, a little iPhone app help, and a pinch of luck (or tequila), we found out we were expecting on February 19, 2012.

Nervous. Thrilled. In Love. Happy. Euphoric. 3 Pee Sticks. Scared Shitless. Inaudible Squealing.

Holy cow. 9 months to learn everything we need to know. Where are my notes from 10th grade health class?! This has now become a crash course in human development. Clearly, we’re going to need more apps.
