this is us
It all started with a game of red rover at a middle school retreat we were both serving at. Jack broke through Chelsea's iron grip and that was that. All the middle school girls knew we were meant for each other and here we are.
We got married outside of our church. It was a simple wedding at sunset on June 23. All of our friends and family were there, including all the middle school students who played such a huge role in us meeting. 2 years later we started having babies and they just keep coming.
We love EVERYTHING outdoors. Hiking, camping, canoeing, breathing. All the things. Like we're dedicated. Once we did a backpacking/canoeing trip when Chelsea was 13 weeks pregnant.
We both love Zambia and lived there at different times before we got married. Our kids have Zambian middle names!
This Is Us. Ugh. We cry during *almost* every episode. Jack says he doesn't but he does.
Our lives are far from perfect. Our marriage requires lots of patience and grace, just like any other marriage. And guys. It's worth it. We hope you'll bring us along as you begin your story.
Jack has the most contagious personality. He's intentional, sweet, spontaneous, goofy, outgoing, and adventurous. Everyone loves him.
He's good at freaking everything, which is annoying because we're both super competitive.
He loves This Is Us more than I do. If you've seen it, my Jack is basically a more athletic version of Jack Pearson.
He is an incredible daddy and I love seeing him lead, play with, and cuddle with our kids.
Chelsea is an amazing artist. She's extremely driven and won't settle for anything but the best! She's always wearing her contagious smile and positive attitude.
She's an amazing super-mom, who somehow conjures up the energy to take care of everyone - I love how she gets creative with our kids and loves them so well.
She's always dreaming up new ideas and looking for the next adventure.
Chelsea's a loyalist, whether it's friends or clients, she's always looking out for what's best for others!
