About Me

Hello!  I'm Andrea! 

I grew up in a tiny little town in western Kentucky.  I spent just over 10 years living in New York City, but my husband and I recently relocated to Columbus, OH. I am happy to be back in the midwest, but it's been a bigger adjustment that I expected.

Christopher and I dated long distance for over three years.  He proposed in the most perfect way on December 30, 2013.  Check out that story here!

Most of my adventures these days are with him.  We got married on October 18, 2014.  Check here to read all about our big day! 

Fortunately, Christopher gets along with my family.  This is crucial because they are a huge part of my world.  My parents are both amazing people.  They worked extremely hard to provide an extraordinary life for my brothers and me.  I am proud to call them mom and dad.  I love the time we spend together.  We even went on a whirlwind European adventure together in 2011.

I am the oldest of my siblings.  The middle child is my brother - Jordan.  We were confused for twins when we were younger as we are only 18 months apart in age.  We fought and fought and fought back then, but today he is one of my closest friends.  We have lived together, gone on trips together, and been to most of the NFL stadiums for football games together.  And now, he and his lovely wife have given me a niece and a nephew...who I love more than life itself.  Seriously, I do!

Last, but certainly not least, is my little Bubsa.  My baby brother, McKinley, is awesome!  He is currently a medical resident at UK Hospital.  He is an ambitious fella and super funny.  And he's always up for an adventure with big sis :)
