About Us


Chris and I met in April 2010.   Our first date was at Stonewerks Grill at the Rim.  This would eventually be the place that Chris would propose!  The summer was spent getting to know each other…which included 6 mile runs through Helotes and having incredible conversations at Starbucks afterwards that would last for several hours!  We traveled a bit…visiting friends in Austin and Houston…and enjoyed family vacations in Rockport.  It didn’t take us long to figure out we loved each other and wanted to spend the rest of our lives together!


  • Love your blog! So happy to see progress on the house. Wish you guys a wonderful rest of summer. Hope we can visit soon.

    Chris, is there a way to get a “notification” when you have entries to your blog? It wasn’t til tonight that I thought about you guys and your house and “stopped by” to see if there were any updates. Boy, were there. It looks great. I also saw that you answered my question about the “bags” in the foundation, though I am still not quite sure all its purpose as I replied at that point in the posts…
