Where We Live

A beautiful view from our local park
Hi there,

We’re Matt and Josh, and we’d like to tell you a little about our life together. We’ve been a couple for almost thirteen years, and live with our sweet three year-old daughter Maggie in a leafy, peaceful neighborhood full of parks and playgrounds near downtown Washington, DC. Josh likes to say that our community is an “urban Mayberry” because living here feels like the quaint little town on the “Andy Griffith Show” where neighbors stop, smile, and say hello.

Our home is a couple of blocks from one of the best schools in the area, and minutes from the museums, galleries, and national monuments that make our city a fun and interesting place to live.

About Matt

Matt is originally from the foothills of eastern Tennessee, where he was raised on his family’s farm near the Great Smoky Mountains. He grew up loving the outdoors, and would play in the fields and run through the woods as a kid. Matt also helped his family tend to the crops and gardens.

To this day, Matt continues these traditions – usually spending his time trying new recipes in the kitchen with ingredients from our garden.

Everyone lived on farms near each other, so they would spend time together canning and preserving jams, jellies and vegetables from what they grew. To this day, Matt continues these traditions – usually spending his time trying new recipes in the kitchen with ingredients from our garden. Matt grew up to attend an Ivy-league law school, and now works as a lawyer for a big law firm here in the city.

About Josh

Josh is originally from New York City, and moved to the DC area as a kid. As the child of former hippies, he was encouraged to be creative from an early age. He expressed this by doing things like painting and gluing toys to his bedroom walls, and today satisfies his love of art by checking out local galleries and exhibits.

Josh later realized a passion for making the world a better place and exploring different cultures.

He has a huge heart for animals, whether he’s feeding the neighborhood stray cat or supporting our local animal shelter. Josh later realized a passion for making the world a better place and exploring different cultures, living for a time in South Africa and travelling to dozens of countries on five continents. Josh feels lucky to have a job that allows him to spend lots of time with his family while also creatively using technology to help more people around the world have an opportunity to start their own small businesses.

About Us

We believe that the keys to happiness are cherishing relationships with friends and family, appreciating the little things in life, and spending as much time with nature as possible. We both love to read and travel, and feel strongly about the importance of a good education and learning more about the world around us. Most importantly, we believe in the importance of creating a happy, safe and loving home full of laughter and new adventures.

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” - Winnie the Pooh

For us, the lyrics to one of our favorite songs ring true, “home is wherever I’m with you.”

Thanks so much for reading our letter and taking the time to get to know us a bit. We know that whatever decision you make is the right one, and wish you all the best.
