the welcome mat

Hi and welcome!

I hope you come and stay a while. Stay for the laughs, the encouragement, the adventures, the stories…and join us as we share new lessons in parenthood and in married life, discover cool new technology, styles, foods, projects, and all things kid-related. Come with us as we navigate this amazing adventure of life with our two favourite sidekicks: Dominic and Audrey seeking all things beautiful, true and good, especially HIM, in our humble lives.

Our blog started as a wedding blog for our family and friends but after the last fireworks faded into that blissful summer night over the Charlottetown harbour, we continued to find it to be a wonderful space to share our new adventures, especially since we had family and friends from all over the world. With “City Girl” from Los Angeles, California and “Island Boy” from Prince Edward Island, Canada, and because our travels as a missionary and seminarian (respectively) together has taken us all over the globe from South America to Europe to Asia, we loved the idea of sharing bits and pieces from our lives through a universal medium. Coupled with Brendon’s technological skills especially in web development, and Maria’s eye for design, it was a natural fit.

We sincerely hope you come visit us here often, and always be able to come away with a smile, some inspiration, comfort and blessing. We hope we can enrich your lives through ours in a small way and that through opening our hearts and lives to you, that you may be able to experience God’s loving hand through it all.

With all our love,

Maria and Brendon

    I’m not sure how this works – if we’re welcoming your blog or you’re welcoming us to your blog, haha! But anyway, thank you for keeping us updated on how things are going for both of you. We’re enjoying your blog so much! God bless you!
