|Date||Since we started dating, every anniversary and half-anniversary we go out for a steak dinner. Those are always my favorite dates, because we both love steak and we get to celebrate spending another 6 months together!||The Christmas that Josh and I were engaged, I got us tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway in Chicago! It was an amazing show and such a fun night!|
|Season/Holiday||Christmas, my favorite time of the entire year, is stuck right in the middle of winter, my least favorite season.||Autumn is my absolute favorite time of the year! I love all of the colors, decorations, and food that it brings. I impatiently look forward to Thanksgiving all year and cherish the traditions of watching the Macy's Parade with my siblings, gathering around the table with my large family to eat together, sharing what we're thankful for, and hanging out until the early hours of the morning.|
|More About Our Family
We were both raised in strong Christian homes and grew up going to church, youth group, retreats, and camps. In college, we both held leadership roles in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, where our faith became our own and grew even stronger. Our relationships with God are very important to us and are at the center of our marriage, and we hope to give our child the same strong foundation in Christ that we were given by our parents.
