we.We wed amidst a snowstorm in January 2010. After our honeymoon we moved to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. & lived in a wee little studio condo. In July 2010 Elliott found out he was being deployed for a one-year assignment to Egypt & we also discovered we were unexpectedly expecting a baby. We moved to Sicily, Italy, in July 2011 & we will live here for 3 years. Every day we study a little Italian, learning word by word.
Elliott is a hippie peacekeeping veterinarian in the U.S. Army. He likes building campfires, sleeping outside, & planning adventures around the world. He grows a beard for Becca whenever he's on leave. For fun he goes birdwatching & reads DC blogs even in Italy.
Becca is a former ICU nurse & is currently volunteering as a visiting RN for newborn babies and post-partum moms. She thinks mommy-ing our baby girl is the best thing she's ever done. She likes knitting by the campfires he builds, reading old books, & going to small bluegrass concerts. For fun she started this blog & goes to the town market to do our weekly fruit, fish, & veggie shopping.
and baby makes 3!
Born on April 3, 2011, Magdalena Katherine is the blue-eyed joy in our lives. We call her Lena (LAY-nuh). These days she likes stacking and sorting toys, reading books with anyone who will humor her, and walking/running everywhere. She has an amazing amount of hair and a giggle for which we'll do absurdly silly things.
actually, make that 4...
We're expecting our second child in late January 2013. The adventure continues as the family grows!
