|Some of Michael & Becca's Favorites
|Way to spend a weekend||Saturdays are a day for play and Sundays are a day for rest and recharging! ||Going out and about on Saturday (shopping or being out in nature) and then really laid back Sunday spent at home after church. |
|Time of year and why||Late summer and fall! I love to hunt so it's an exciting time of year for that hobby! ||I love September through December! The beginning of the school year is exciting, and then there are several holidays that build up to Christmas (my favorite)!|
|Food to make at home||Our new house has a huge covered patio, so I've been really getting into grilling!||It's definitely taco night! |
|Way to hang out with our extended families||I love it when we head out to the lake with my family. With Becca's side, I love it when we have family dinner and game nights. ||My side of the family has an annual trip to a lake in Canada! With Michael's side, it's anytime we are together and outside. We're often having game nights, bonfires, picnics, or playing yard games.|
|Thing about our home||I love how private our home is, yet we're so close to everything we need. ||It's totally our yard and neighborhood! We're on 1 acre and nestled into trees and protected woodlands. It's idyllic and such a calm space. |
|Hobby or pastime||My favorite hobbies are hunting, guitar/music, and gaming. ||For me, it's totally weightlifting, coaching CrossFit, crochet, and other arts & crafts! |
|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Becca's special interests include trying and developing new skills! Becca is never tired of being a beginner at something! She has dappled in ukulele, painting, photography, and sign language. Becca is also passionate about living a healthy lifestyle! She is meticulous about prepping lunches and snacks for her work week, exercising throughout the week, and choosing joy for a healthy mindset.
Becca teaches at our local elementary school and has taught 5 years in kindergarten, a year in 1st, and is about to begin 2nd grade.
Michael's special interests include writing his own music and craftsmanship. Michael plays guitar and enjoys spending time plucking out new rhythms and songs. He will also collaborate with his brother on music! Michael is a craftsman through and through. A year ago, he couldn't find the right type of knife he wanted for fishing, so he MADE one. Then, he turned around and made a couple more as gifts for our fathers. Michael's craftsmanship also extends to projects around the home. He made our fireplace, entryway, and nursery batten-board walls. In the past, he's built Becca blanket ladders, coffee tables, and installed tile. Michael is the handiest man to have around!
He has worked in the construction field since the age of 16! Recently, he got to make the move from lead carpenter to an estimator.
Michael came to know Jesus in middle school and Becca came to know Jesus in high school! They met at a community college club called CRU which is a Christian club. Their faith is the center of their life. Becca and Michael enjoy reading the Bible and have a pile of studies they take turns going through together. They firmly believe they need to live out Christ's love to others and try their best to do just that each day.
|"Avid Homebodies"... with a side of adventure |
Yup. It's true. We LOVE being home. It's sort of hard to leave when it's just so nice to be home! We are introverts at heart, so we love to recharge in our retreat-like home surrounded by trees and nature sounds. BUT - we are also in an amazing part of WA state where there's so much to explore! So, when we do feel rested we love taking advantage of our surroundings: ocean beaches, lakes, rivers, mountain trails, and even quaint small-town shopping.
While we totally love a good lazy afternoon around the home, we also love stepping outside the door and going exploring! One of our recent favorites since moving to the new home is visiting a local salt-water beach on an inlet and beach-combing.
