Meet the Family
"Home should be an anchor, a port in a storm, a refuge, a happy place in which to dwell, a place where we are loved and where we can love.”
-Marvin J. Ashton

Nearly a decade ago we decided that being afraid wasn’t a good enough reason not to do something. If we couldn’t come up with any other reason but fear keeping us from a dream, then we had to jump in and do it. Following that philosophy has taken our life from normal to amazing. We’ve brought 9 children into our family both through birth and adoption, built a successful business, traveled the U.S. in a RV, and traveled the globe, and now we're building a not so tiny house.
Do you know what they call living like that? It’s called living with no regrets. We want to squeeze every single happy drop out of life that we possibly can. And we hope that as you come along on our journey, you’ll not only learn some great tips and tricks for happy living, you’ll be inspired to step into the darkness and start living the life you were created to live too!
