we live in orange county california but often dream of living elsewhere. it was pouring on our wedding day. and still we took photos under the rain and got married outside surrounded by trees and our family. we took a pact not to get a dog until after one year of marriage. shockingly, we lasted and on Valentine’s Day last year we rescued a pup. he officially takes up half our bed, his name is Lloyd Christmas and yes he has his own instagram profile. road trips are our jam. we plan on owning a VW bus one day and taking it everywhere. right now we live in a 1920’s home where it’s colder inside than out and the doors get stuck but we love it. we met in high school. dated after graduation. and twelve years later got married. in between that we started this business. friends call us quirky, our family thinks we’re different. we take both as a compliment. getting dressed up is our steaze just as much as camping, being in nature and getting mud on our boots. we love home cooked meals, brewing our own coffee and bingeing on netflix (because who doesn’t). we hang out together way too much, laugh a whole lot and snuggling is our favorite.


we crave genuine relationships.
we believe in honest conversation and find inspiration in the imperfect.

joe likes cars. like a lot. he inherited a 1976 toyota celica liftback and is working on restoring it back to life. he rocks long curly hair and wears a man bun most days. he is half mexican but don't tell his pale skin that. @merrilljoe
kathrina has no sense of smell, but loves the smell of books. she has been described as a "low key but super crazy" britney fan and is highly competitive when it comes to board games. you can always find her thanks to her loud laugh. @kathrinadiane
