The “us” in Us and Him refers to myself and my daughter, and any future children who may join our little family. The “him” refers to Michael, my partner in life and Grand Theft Auto crime. Together we make up our crazy little family.
I met Mike through his brother in 2009. After we hung out for the first time, I went home and told my mother I had a weird feeling that I just met the man I was meant to marry. We were close friends for 2 years while we dated other people and then began hanging out regularly in Fall 2011. We made our relationship official on January 13, 2012 when we went on a romantic getaway to Niagara Falls. Now whenever we want some time together, that is where we go.
In the summer of 2012 we decided to move in together and found a cozy 2 bedroom condo to rent. However it didn’t last long, and that November we moved out and into our first house! Shortly before our move we decided we wanted to try and add to our family, and a little more quickly than we expected, in December of that same whirlwind year of 2012, we found out we were having a baby!
Brynn Avery was born on July 22, 2013, and in the fall of that year, Us and Him was born. I wanted a place where I could connect with other moms, write about things related to motherhood and my daughter, and share some of my favourite things.
I am so grateful for every single person who reads and shares our stories, likes our photos, or follows along. It has been an honour getting to know all of you and being able to make new friends!
