Hi, We’re Kim & Pete

We Love our Not-So-Perfect Plan.

When we met and married, we knew what we wanted. The kids, the pets, the house, the careers. We had it all planned out. 

And then life happened.

Robbed of health and facing other challenges, life took some pretty dramatic twists and turns. 
But through all the setbacks that life has thrown at us, we’ve found reasons to hope.
Our beautiful children, hard-fought successes, and long-awaited reconciliations have taught us that even if our plans didn’t follow what we originally wanted, what we got was better than we ever imagined.

 

We’re glad you’re here.

Better Together!
