We met in March, 2014 and have been inseparable ever since. We were introduced by Adam’s cousin who is also Karen’s co-worker and were married in September, 2015. Adam works in sales, and Karen is a high-school Spanish teacher. We both love our jobs a lot, especially when Karen gets the summers off! Our home is in a quiet neighborhood in Bloomington, MN. We live right next to a huge park reserve that has a playground and lots of walking trails for our friendly black Labrador, Vina.
We love our family so much and are always finding time to be with them. Both of our extended families are quite large which makes weddings and holidays really fun! We love to camp, play games and travel with our immediate families.
Adam’s parents are Jim & Sue that live out in the country in a small town near Willmar. He has 1 younger sister, Holly who just graduated from college.
Karen’s parents are Henry & the late Diane who passed away in 2013. Her dad lives in New Hope. Her older brother, Jeff lives in Chicago with his wife, Alyssa & their adopted son Ian. Karen’s older sister, Christina lives in Maple Grove with her husband, Jim & their son Nathaniel and daughter Julia. Her youngest sister, Sharon also lives in Chicago.
We both have learned a lot from our parents’ strong marriages, their faith and hard-work ethics. We plan to teach these to our child as we make it a priority to spend time together in order to build a strong and loving family.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us; we hope to have a chance to know and meet you in person!
