Hello! I'm Jessica.
Wife to Nate.
:: Nate's good lookin,' hard workin,' and the best daddy to my girls. He obsesses over Michigan Football and loves a good weekend outdoors exploring the Pacific Northwest. We met in March 2008 during a wild St. Paddy's day weekend in Wrigleyville, Chicago. We eloped to California a year later in May 2009 before my hunny deployed to Iraq for the 2nd time as a U.S. Marine.
Mama to Dagny, Kate & Trudy.
:: Kate, our blonde miniature dachshund, was born in Tennessee on October 27, 2010 and officially made us a mama and daddy. She came to live with us in downtown Chicago - little city dog, she was! She loves cheese, rotisserie chicken, and barking.
:: Trudy, our chocolate miniature dachshund, was born in Texas on August 2, 2013 and taught us that dachshunds are actually capable of listening and not being spiteful - ha! She came to live with us when we were living with my parents in the suburbs of Chicago and our hearts grew 2 sizes that day! She loves vacuums, copying Kate, and kissing our face.
:: Dagny, our tiny strawberry blond human baby, was born in Washington on December 23, 2015. She has absolutely rocked our world to the core and we couldn't imagine life without our sweetie. She loves life...but in particular, she loves her puppy sisters, milkies, smiling, and sleeping.
