My husband, Nate and I have 5 dogs. We show our 3 Siberian Huskies in AKC dog shows all around the country for fun and enjoy living in a zoo with the Siberians, our Mini Aussie and Pekingese.
I love creating- taking photos, painting, and drawing. When I’m not pursuing some sort of artistic endeavor, you can find me trying to master snowboarding, using the word “literally,” literally way too much, pretending to be an interior designer while decorating my house, listening to podcasts, trying to make it to all of the National Parks, talking true crime, traveling the world with my husband and existing almost exclusively off of tacos + green tea.

Kristen + Nate
Nate and I met in 2009 and after bonding over knee surgeries started dating. We ended up drifting apart a few months later and didn't talk for nearly two years but almost exactly to the date we originally met, we reconnected and the rest is history.
In August of 2017, Nate took me on a surprise trip to Colorado for my birthday and proposed to me on the edge of Dream Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was pretty magical and I jokingly said, "I guess dreams do come true at Dream Lake."
On 7-22-2018, we eloped in Las Vegas for our "legal" ceremony. On 8-8-2018 we had our ceremony on top of the mountains at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in British Columbia surrounded by our close family and friends with my brother officiating our ceremony. We had our reception at a vintage bowling alley in Banff, Alberta. It was one of the best days of our entire lives.
