My name is Heather and I grew up on Long Island, NY (hence my affinity for spray tanning).
Just so happens that he grew up on Long Island too!
After 6 years of dating we got engaged!
Then came the big wedding.
More importantly, the honeymoon.
We decided to make Boston our home after college while JP attended grad school.
In November 2010 we introduced a new member to our family.
We called Boston our home for 12 amazing years and truly believe it will always feel like “home” for us.
JP finished up his PhD and defended his thesis in August, 2012!
And a week later we were on our way to our new home in Atlanta where JP would do his postdoctoral research at Emory. I also managed to land a great job (not as a mover)!
It wasn’t very long before we received news that our family of 3 would soon become a family of 4!
So we did what any normal couple living in an affordable area of the country would do…we bought a house!
And on December 10, 2013, 9 days past my due date, we welcomed Allston Richard Canner!
The road to getting pregnant was a big bumpy but totally worth it!
