We have a serious soft spot for furry creatures. Our dog Cooper is a big part of our lives and we include him on all our family activities. He's a big hit with all our nephews, nieces, and the neighborhood kids.
We love exploring new places and seeking out new adventures. This passion started in college when we studied abroad in Poland. Since then, we have been all over Europe, the Caribbean, and the United States!
Mark's grandfather owned a steakhouse for 20 years. So a desire to cook and seek out great food has been passed down to him by his family. Mark loves to cook for Heidi and try new restaurants.
Music is an important part of our life. We met in high school marching band where Heidi played the clarinet and Mark played the saxophone. While our musical skills have diminished, we love going to concerts and always have good tunes playing in our house.
Mark is a manager for a company in the heavy duty truck industry, and Heidi works for Mark part-time. Heidi enjoys the flexible schedule that her work provides. And Mark enjoys working around trucks because it's like "Adult Tonka Toys."
One of our favorite things to do is sit back and watch the sunset next to a crackling fire. Whether at our house, family farm, or out camping- there is something beautiful about watching the vibrant colors of the day melt into the soft glow of the night stars.
