Hey there, welcome to our family blog! We are a family of 5 living in South Florida on a mini farm just living the dream. Both my husband and I work from home running our own businesses and we also homeschool our 2 youngest children Jack (11) and Emma (10) while our oldest daughter Chloe (22) attends university. We settled in South Florida about 9 years ago after living in Toronto Canada for 2 years, prior to that we were living the Pura Vida dream in a remote beach town called Nosara in Costa Rica (Our youngest Emma was born there).
My husband John was born and raised in Southern California (North Hollywood, Studio City) and I’m originally from Toronto Canada. We met on a business trip in Phoenix back in 2004 and it’s been a non-stop adventure since that very day. As Dr. Seuss says “Oh the places you’ll go”. We got married in Las Vegas back in 2006 and have spend the last decade raising our little family and traveling the World on adventures big and small.
A little over a year and a half ago our son decided he wanted to try hockey, but what we didn’t know is that it would completely take over our lives and start us on a new adventure. Shortly after his start in hockey our youngest Emma decided she wanted to learn to ice skate too. She started in the learn to skate classes and rocketed from that point to competitive figure skating today.
Chloe our oldest is in her last year of university and while most of her focus is on her classes and writing papers she finds time to participate in her schools mock trial team and is also a member of the school band. She is a clarinet player and has been playing since middle school.
