For those of you who do not have the privilege of knowing us, or you only think you know us, here is some information about us. We have come a long way from the pictures at the top of this page. Our love of life, humor, God, and each other has made us the individuals and the couple we are today, and of whom this page is intended to give you a glimpse.
Christian grew up in southern California. He was homeschooled from second grade until he started attending community college. After attending a few community colleges, he graduated with a B.A. in government from Claremont McKenna College. He is currently in his last year at the University of Michigan School of Law, and will graduate in December. His interests include reading, politics, computers, apologetics, and martial arts. He anxiously awaits the Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring movie coming out in December.
Mandy has lived in Champlain her whole life. She enjoys spending time with her family, who mostly live around the same area that she does. She is an alumna of Northeastern Clinton Central School in Champlain. She recently graduated with honors from Clinton Community College, with an associate degree in humanities and social sciences. She likes singing off-key, painting on canvas (and incidentally herself), and wearing patchwork blankets and tapestries as clothes. She aspires to write paperback novels and to save the redwoods.
From now on. . .
After the wedding, Christian and Mandy lived in Champlain while Christian spent the summer working at Clute, Clute & Thompson, a Plattsburgh, New York law firm. In August they moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan until Christian finishes his last semester of law school. Mandy is attending Washtenaw Community College for the time being. After that, they will relocate to and Mandy will attend a 4 year school where ever Christian finds a job, but they have a few preferred locations in mind.
Much of their time is currently spent studying for school. But when they have a free moment they like to listen to music, have intellectual debates, read, write short stories, visit Burlington, Vermont, take road trips, learn stuff, play with the neighbor kids, blow bubbles, check toaster ovens and compose songs. They enjoy camping and just might purchase a yurt in the near future.
