Both of us are from sunny Southern California and are currently students at Brigham Young University. We grew up in the same home town (about 3 minutes away from each other, in fact), but didn’t meet until about 8th grade. We dated in high school and about 5 years later (after missions and a bit of college) we were married in the Newport Beach, California Temple in August of 2016.

We are currently are both studying tech and design for theatre; Matt is studying sound design and Susan is studying stage management and on the side light design. We are constantly busy with shows and work (Matt at BYU Broadcasting as an engineer and Susan in the theatre department as a lighting technician), but like to make time to go snowboarding or escape Provo whenever we can.

As for why we are starting this blog: we have both had some sort of blog in the past just talking about our lives, so we decided that in this new stage in life we should probably keep track of our weeks and document it in some form. That and we both have siblings that are or will be on missions and suck at writing a weekly email, so we’re hoping this will motivate us.

We also hope to be going on fun adventures this summer, so this would be a place to write about them and post some fun pictures.

So anyways, that’s us.
