All About Us

Hi! I'm Mara and my husband is Kyle.  We live in our hometown by the beach in southern California.
I am dog mommy to my baby boy Cody and soon-to-be real mommy to baby girl Blake (coming soon).

Kyle is an EMT, Reserve Firefighter, Surfer.
I love to read, craft, blog, take Cody for walks, waste hours online looking at blogs/Pinterest (Kyle hates this) and plan for our future.  That's maybe what I like most about Pinterest, it's one long day dream about potential things that could be in our future.  I work two jobs and have just finished my postbaccalaureate in Communicative Disorders at California State University, Fullerton.  I plan on attending grad school but for now I'm taking a break to be a new mom.

When I met Kyle at Lake Havasu on Memorial weekend 4 years ago I was not looking for a husband but I found one anyway.  Sometimes life gives you exactly what you didn't know you needed at the time when you least expect it. 
There were a lot of naysayers in the beginning.  Kyle and I have a significant age gap, and
I'm the older one, but we knew that what we had was special and we didn't care what anyone else had to say about it.

Our love story may be unconventional but its ours and we wouldn't have it any other way. We have grown more in love everyday since the day we met and now its official and we couldn't be more thrilled.

Hi Lisa,
The white changing table was a hand me down but I think they got it on Amazon. The pad and polka dot cover are from Pottery Barn Kids.
I hope that helps :)
