about us.

We met in Tucson on Labor Day Weekend of 2002.
Got engaged in San Francisco on Labor Day Weekend 2008.
Said “I Do” in Rancho Santa Fe on Labor Day Weekend 2009.

Together we… graduated from the University of Arizona (Go Cats!), said goodbye to Tucson and hello to Phoenix, got married and became "The Tings," grew our family by adopting our French Bulldog son Hunter & daughter Sydney, have begun to explore the world, see lots of concerts, play a whole lot of backgammon, go through our fair share of ups & downs and fall in love a little bit more each day.
