Although both Jess and I will be writing on the blog, I (Alix) thought I would first write about Jess and me. We met in seventh grade, German class, both being awkward middle schoolers and probably taking the nerdiest class together made us quick friends. Then we found out we had more things in common and soon became good friends. Again in eighth grade we had German class together. Then high school came, I transferred to a different high school and Jess went to the high school where all our middle school friends went. We saw each other at church functions but not much more than that. I moved then after my Sophomore year to Washington and Jess and I lost touch. For college Jess went to BYU-I and I went to WSU, but like most plans, my plans for college changed and transferred to BYU-I after freshman year. Since I knew absolutely no one except Jess, I called her up and we were roommates our sophomore year. Jess takes most credit, and I don’t care if she takes it, but I met my husband through her, they worked together, which is great that your best friend and husband are good friends too. After sophomore year I got married but Jess and I still hung out all the time. Currently Jess is traveling the world and having crazy fun adventures. I am currently still stuck in the college town waiting for my husband to get into med school and embarking on my own adventure of motherhood.
Jess and I don’t claim to know anything. Really we don’t. I can answer math questions for you if you want, and Jess is an awesome writer (so if there is crappy writing happening on this blog you can attribute it to myself), and can speak like a billion languages, but really we are no experts. We just love to create and try new things. So enjoy our blog!

And I just realized that I don't have any half decent pictures of Jess and I, they are all quite goofy, so here is one.
