|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Kat enjoys anything creative. She has spent time pursuing dance, painting, drawing, creative writing, singing and playing musical instruments. She had even worked with interior design, floral arranging, and much more. She was even a freelance makeup artist in her free time for a while! Kat spends weekends in her garden because she loves to watch things grow and come to life. She loves the design, the challenge, and fulfillment that comes from creating something from nothing.
Most of Garrett's interests are activities that take him into the great outdoors. Fishing, hiking, paddle boarding, boating, playing all sports, exercising and barbecuin' are just a few things that bring him joy. He loves the smell of fresh air, the feeling of the sun's rays, and the sound of water rushing down a river! For him, it's not only about doing those activities, but also about bringing others along for the adventure; because Garrett loves to share his joy with others!
Our faith is everything to us. Kat works full-time at our church as the Director of Communications and Garrett is actively pursuing further education and training to become a pastor one day. Our faith is more than just what we "do", Jesus is a huge part of who we are. Our relationships with Him is what informs just about every decision we make because we truly aim to live our lives for Him.
|Our Musical Interest|
We have very wide musical interests! Both of us can appreciate all types of music and spend time dancing to it in our kitchen! Garrett loves oldies, country, and anything that reminds him of the beach. Kat likes acoustic music, like Jack Johnson and John Mayer, and really enjoys jazz music, too!
|About Our Home|
Our home is modern, clean, and very bright. We aim for our home to be cozy and peaceful. With tons of windows and intentionally selected decor and paint colors, our home is always warm and inviting to others, while still being a place where rest comes easily. We have three bedrooms, and the large, corner bedroom is decorated and ready to go as a nursery! It has plenty of windows and lots of space for your baby to grow. We are planning on turning our first level into a playroom; it opens right up to the backyard for lots of fun both inside and outside! We are excited to make memories as a family roasting marshmallows around our fire pit, snuggling up and watching movies on Sunday afternoons, and playing fetch with our dogs in the backyard!
|We live in the state of...|
Virginia! Living in Virginia means we have easy access to Washington D.C. and all of the museums and rich history there. We are surrounded by incredible historical & educational opportunities at every turn, while still being just a car-ride away from apple picking, a day at the beach, or tubing down a local river. Living in this area also means access to beautiful diversity & cultural experiences of all kinds that we can't wait to share with our children. This area offers so much while still providing a wonderful home-town feeling.
Our neighborhood is well kept and quiet. We have a beautiful fenced in backyard and also have a community pool. There is a private neighborhood park around the corner and the library is less than a block away. It's the perfect distance to walk to for afternoon story time! Our neighborhood is filled with young families. With plenty of places to ride a bike, throw a ball, and go on family walks, we think it's the perfect place to start our family!
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...

We're open to staying in touch and sharing memories through photos, letters, and visits. We hope to talk to you soon!
