Who Are We

I realized that I never really introduced Aaron and me(Molly), because I never really thought that too many people besides my mother would read this. But, I have noticed that we have 11 followers and my mother only has two email addresses. I am going to give you a brief summary of Aaron and I, in case you don’t know us. If I don’t know you, I’d love it if you would introduce yourself in the comments.

Aaron is my husband, of course. He is a “construction materials testing technician”. Which is a really long job title which means that he keeps buildings from falling over. By testing concrete and looking at building plans, etc. For fun, Aaron likes working out in the yard, hiking, geocaching, mountain biking, camping, basically anything that means being outdoors! I think that the first word that most people would use to describe Aaron would be quiet (he is very quiet!); other good adjectives for him are sweet, hardworking, patient,  and active.

That photo is from our honeymoon. It is Glacier National Park, which is one of the many places that we went to on our honeymoon.

Aaron and I are largely opposites. I just graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Classical Antiquity, which I will probably never use! I have my own business, the Paper Hat, where I design and print custom napkins for weddings, birthday parties, etc. It is really a lot of fun. If I ever get an opportunity for free time, my first instinct is to take a nap, but I also love taking our dogs hiking, playing any kind of board game which involves trivia or words, traveling, reading, and picnics.

This is also from our honeymoon, also from Glacier NP… we went to so many other parks, but we had actually showered on the first day of being in Glacier.

Aaron and I live in Lawrence, Kansas, home of the Jayhawks. While it is our home now, neither of us grew up in Kansas… Aaron is from Missouri and I am from Pennsylvania. We love Kansas because of the open spaces. We have three dogs, weimaraners. I am a crazy dog person. All three of our dogs, despite their high energy levels, are great with everyone. They are all from a weimaraner rescue, Heartland Weim Rescue, which is a really fantastic organization if you live in the Midwest and want to adopt a weimaraner (see my crazy dog person side coming out?).

Is there anything else that you want to know about us?
