1. What is something you want to make sure your child gets to experience?

Neither of us had the privilege of being able to travel when we were kids. Now that we have the means, we want to be sure our child gets to travel and experience new places around the world.
We love to do this now as a couple and can’t wait to share this with our child.

2. What is a challenge you are proud to have overcome? What advice would you give others struggling with something similar?

We aren’t proud that we had to go through infertility, but we are very proud that our marriage was strong enough to get through it. It proved we are able to get through the toughest times and come out stronger in the end.
The advice we would give others struggling with infertility would be to just be there for each other. Be sure you are communicating and understanding each other’s feelings. No one can understand what you are going through better than each other.

3. What is your favorite TV show or series?

Jill: “This is Us” is my favorite TV show of all time because the life events are shown in such a real, relatable way. I was able to relate to some things personally and some not so much, but the way they execute the show is so touching.
Chris: “Lost” is the first TV series that I seriously got into and loved. I was at a friend’s house where they were watching the Season 3 finale, and my friends said we had to watch the show before doing anything else. I never watched a single episode, but I was completely drawn in that night—so many twists, turns, and mysteriousness.

4. Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?

Jill: Body movement. Whether it be a short workout, a long workout, or just a simple walk around the neighborhood, getting up and moving my body each day is very important to me and brightens my day.
Chris: I love a good puzzle or trivia. Whether that be a puzzle video game, Wordle, or sports trivia like Immaculate Grid, I really enjoy taking some time to work my brain outside of work.

5. What is your greatest accomplishment so far?

Our home and finances are definitely our greatest accomplishments.
Fortunately, we are very stable and have worked hard to have no debt. We have always been great savers and responsible with our finances/budget.
