about us

We're from the Syracuse, NY, area and started dating when we went to BYU-Idaho for college. We were married December 2008 and have a daughter, Sophie. We will be welcoming a new baby in November 2013! We currently live in Mason, Ohio, near lots of family! Drew is working at Liberty Mutual Insurance as an Auto Claims Adjuster. Carissa is now a stay-at-home wife and momma! We know there's more in store for us in our future, and we say, "Come what may and love it!"

Our One Day Mini-Vacation

Lately we've been pretty busy working and doing other activities.  Drew has been recently promoted to "Shift Leader" at work and will be getting a raise!  Since Drew works so much at the theater and with the theater's hired cleaning business, we don't get very many opportunities to spend the day out doing something new.
About 3 weeks ago, Drew and I had the chance to take a trip to the Barron's in Skaneateles, New York (that would be Drew's parents).  It's not too far away from our home but we don't get to see them nearly as often as we'd like.  We had a nice dinner with the family and spent some time chatting and laughing together: the usual.  I really enjoy seeing Drew with his family; it's fun to see how his sense of humor matches his dad's and how he and Erik bounce off each other!
The next day, neither os us had to work (thanks to Lisa at the theater, Drew now gets Mondays off--she asked him what days I usually have off and she made it happen), so we planned a day in the town of Skaneateles!
Drew said there wouldn't be anywhere to park so we parked at the grocery store and walked into town.  It was a beautiful day and we had a great time!  We walked into the small shops, browsed a bit, and found some good bargains at the thrift store!
Sitting by the lake and talking with Drew was my favorite part of the day.  We talked about where we are in our lives and realized that we need to be doing better to stay close to the Lord.  So we committed ourselves to reading the scriptures together every day and making sure we keep our lives centered on the Gospel... instead of all our other worries and plans.
After having our little chat, we walked by the lake, went into a few more shops, and had some lunch at Valentino's (a local pizza and sub shop that Drew used to go to in high school)!
I don't know why something so small as visiting my husband's home town can make me so happy, but we had a really great time together!
