about us.

hi! she is melissa and he is alex. we met, fell in love, were married, and then had olivia.. here is our story. 


we met 10 years ago when our mothers accidentally introduced us. we dated for three years and then we were engaged. she stayed in miami to finish school.. he went to gainesville for law school.



we were married on december 26th, 2010 and then we moved to gainesville while he finished school.  two months into our married life we adopted our first born, max. he made life fun. six months into marriage and we hear that baby is on the way. we moved back home to miami to be with our family and to bring our baby girl into the world.


once olivia was here... everything changed. its all about olivia now. with a little bit of us in there too.

she is a full time working teacher who is on the verge of going insane, a lover of all things crafty who is constantly starting projects she never finishes, and a shopper with no money. she is a planner, an organized mess, and a lover of cupcakes.

he spends a lot of time playing video games, watching and reviewing movies, and talking about anything and everything. he is an attorney, the funniest guy you will ever know, and the best papa to our little girl.

olivia is the cutest little chunky monkey. olivia loves pulling all of papa's game controllers out of their place, dancing to the beat in her head, and poking mama's eyes. olivia loves it when mama sings, blueberries, strawberries, and rasberries, and playing with water.

max is (in our honest opinion) the sweetest, cutest, funniest, coolest dog in the world. max enjoys begging for food in the cutest way possible, stealing pieces of paper so we can chase him around the house, and sleeping at the foot of the bed. max loves rocking chairs, cherry tomatoes, and the hand pointer in the wii console.
