Katie and Chris started dating in June of 2006 while working together at the local Wal~Mart. Chris soon finished his undergraduate degree in Linguistics at UC Davis while Katie pursued a career working with adults who have developmental disabilities.

After Chris was accepted into the PhD program, they decided to move down to Davis together and get married. A description of their engagement is available here.

This blog is about their adventures living together, planning a wedding, coping with school and new jobs and learning to adapt to a new culture in what is widely known as the People's Republic of Davis.
