Welcome to a glimpse into our lives as a young married couple just trying to navigate this crazy thing called life. I grew up in New York City and lived within a 5 block radius of my childhood home for 23 years of my life. Grew up next to Columbia University, went there for college and vowed to never leave the Big Apple. Jokes on me, because *love* makes us do crazy things. Enter Eric: nerdy Harvard boy from Fresno, California. When Eric got a great gig in San Francisco which would offer both of us a better lifestyle (not spending 16 hours of everyday in the office), we packed our bags and left. Life in California was SO much better – we finally had some free time, unlimited outdoors adventures, and no more freezing winters.
Eric was not a dog lover, but as mentioned earlier….*love* makes us do crazy things. He decided to follow along with “happy wife, happy life” and thus Calvin joined our family in 2017. Turns out, Eric became a dog lover the moment we brought Calvin home. He fell in love with the loyalty and companionship that dogs add to our lives. He fell in love with the happiness and help that Calvin was able to offer during challenging times. Calvin fit into our active lifestyle perfectly – he’s always ready to go on adventure and does not know how to take anything slow. Even though we had our hands full with Cal,
We decided to buy a house so we could get a second dog (that statement is partially true)
Samson joined our family in 2019 and we continued to go on our adventures but Samson’s demeanor offered a sense of calmness to our family. His perspective is very different from our busy lifestyle. Samson inspires us to take a deep breath and relax – we don’t always have to be on the move. Our family was not quite complete yet so in 2020 we added a kitten named Cleo to our family.
