Welcome to this Window Into Our Life

Our Story

Lucas and I met when we were teenagers at our family campground.  Even though he lived in another province we were penpals through the fall and winter and inseparable during the summers.  Once Lucas graduated high school he moved to my area for university and we started dating. 

We got married in 2002 while we were both still working on our undergraduate degrees - mine in Psychology and his in Computer Engineering.  After university graduation we moved to Ontario where I am now a Ph.D. student in Psychology. 

We are now quite settled in our new home.  The home was only 5 years old when we bought it but we have continuously been making it a place where we feel comfortable - always a work in progress.  Our current projects are my office and our outdoor space.

Lucas and I on vacation in Hawaii recently



Our home is part of a 3 house townhome unit... luckily we are on one of the ends so we have direct access to our backyard.

Our 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath home is perfect for us right now, especially now that we are working on our backyard space.

One side of our living room - complete with the puppy - Izzy.

The other side of our living room... check out the Ikea plastic chairs... not exactly our style but they work for now :)

Pretty self-explanatory eh?  The kitchen.

 Our super tiny 1/2 bath.  My hubby made the vanity and mirror himself - we gave up trying to find something that we liked that would fit in the small space (its smaller than our linen closet!)

A pic of our backyard looking toward the house... we are planning to build an extension on the deak and move some of the planting.

Our backyard facing away from the house... not the best view considering the apartment complex behind us.  In the next month we are fencing all the way around with a wood privacy fence and we have some major landscaping and planting plans... check in soon!

... pics of upstairs rooms are coming soon ...

Our First House

Yup, we lived in a trailer!  It was perfect for us at the time though.

Needless to say though, we didn't exactly have much room for all our stuff :)



February/March 2008 - Hawaiian Islands...
