Adventure and Jesus- it's what draws us together!
Luke and I met during a 3 week camping, hiking, exploring, science and art class trip through Baja California. I was the student and he was "teacher assistant". His dad was the head of the biology department at Biola and has been leading scientific research trips to Bahia De Los Angeles for over 40 years. Eventually they added the art department (yay for me!). In 2004, due to an illness, Luke had to take his dad's place in guiding the class. We quickly became friends, but as mentioned above, we didn't date for another 9 years!
We are passionate about discovering new things: restaurants, activities, places and more. Groupon is wonderful for this. We've learned salsa dancing, fencing, hot air balloons, and more. We have grand dreams of opening a fusion style restaurant, but love photography too much to focus on anything else.
When at home, we love working at fun boutique coffee shops and watching movies (Luke is a huge movie buff-ask him just about anything). We have discovered that we also enjoy cooking together and try variations of new recipes. While we try to be healthy overall, we are both powerless against chocolate chip cookies.
Cumulatively, we have been to over 30 countries! I was a student ambassador through People to People International. A program to help the youth of america develop an appreciation and understanding of other cultures. Luke has been on several missions trips around the world.
Most importantly, our faith is the foundations of our lives. We both grew up in solid christian homes and churches and both have a minor in biblical studies. While human and prone to mistakes, maintaining biblical integrity and the love of Christ in our lives and business is a high priority and a filter for all that we do.
