after five apartments in eight years, my husband (the fish) and i (the crab) finally bought our first home in early 2012. 

my zodiac sign is crabby cancer AND i'm a left-hander, leaving me creative...and emotional. some would say moody. 

i firmly believe where there's a will, there's a way. 

you are bound only by your imagination!

i'm also very stubborn.

thus, in any given situation, you will find me refusing to believe SOMETHING cannot be done...somehow...some way...

my adorable husband, fish, is a pisces. i think he's brilliant -- the quickest learner i've ever met. he can figure anything out. quick-witted. FUNNY. generous. kind. phenomenal cook!

fish listens to my rants and raves and figures out the practical aspects of my fantastic ideas. when i want to do something that's a little too out there, he brings me back down...usually gently.

we met in 2004 and married in 2008.

fish is a hardworking physician. he loves baseball, especially the chicago cubs. his lifetime goal is to see a game at every park in america. so far, we've only been to ten.

i'm a chemist-turned-stay-at-home-mom. i like to doodle, paint, draw. i love puzzles, especially of the logic and math variety. i was running a lot before our house-buying process started and i'm trying to find the inspiration to start again. my goal is to complete a marathon within three years.

we LOVE taking vacations, though we can't get away now as often as we'd like due to fish's insane schedule.

it's not just the two of us!
our big boy K was born in 2009...
he's an enormous handful...and buckets of fun!

...and our little guy H came in 2013!

we started crab+fish as a way to keep our family up-to-date on the goings-on of our household...we'd love for you to join us as well!

you don't have to take off your shoes.
