All about me, or at least as much about me as I think you might care about.
I’m Lizz, married to Jamie, we are the parents of Max(well). We’ve been married since 2006, and Max was born in 2008. We recently added 2 silly cats to the mix, who Max promptly named Princess Leia and Chewie.
Jamie and I have known each other since high school, and I had a big crush on him back in the day. We met at summer camp, but didn’t get together until 10 years later. Of the couples/families that make up our 10 closest friends, I think 9 of them were also at the same summer camp.
We talk about sending Max there too, but then we’re torn, since we know what *really* goes on after the counselors fall asleep!
We’re from the San Francisco Bay Area (basically Silicon Valley) and have both lived here our whole lives, with no desire to relocate too far away from right here.
That’s pretty much the gist of it. Here are some posts that talk about things that set us apart and keep us from being completely run-of-the-mill:
- Our marriage ceremony was performed by one of the friends from summer camp, just a week after he was ordained a real, honest to goodness Episcopal priest. Wanna see wedding pics?
- We are dorky big Beatles fans. Our wedding was kind of Beatles themed (ceremony music was all Beatles and the invitations referenced “All You Need is Love”) We even went to Liverpool on our honeymoon.
- Max was born 12 weeks early due to sudden and severe pre-eclampsia. He weighed 2 lbs, 4.8 oz. and was 14.5″ long. You can read his dramatic birth story here.
- I am a two-time kidney transplant recipient, one from my mom in 2004, and then again from my brother-in-law in 2010. While I have yet to blog my entire illness, dialysis and transplant journey, I’ll go ahead and take this opportunity to show off this post, which was syndicated on BlogHer back in January 2011!
