Merry Christmas from our growing family

Wishing you
God’s rich blessings
of love and joy
now and in the new year.

Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy
which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

—Luke 2:10,11


our family


Dog Mom


I cherished matron of honor duties for both Alissa and Anna as they said “I do!”; also, showers, bachelorette parties, and wedding planning via FaceTime! Nick and I spend weekends exploring San Diego, beach time with Gigi (the goldendoodle), and hanging with family and friends. I enjoy “sister Tuesdays” waiting out traffic with Alissa. In addition to exciting personal events this year, I made some professional changes, too. I am enjoying my new role at Intuit. 🙂 Looking forward to traveling more with Nick in 2023!


Reality OFF | Virtual ON


Had tons of fun this year, started going back to concerts and 49ers games and enjoyed much more hanging with friends and family. Me and my cat Haley are enjoying the single life (for now) but I am super happy for my siblings and thankful to have a much bigger family with two new brothers-in-law. Looking forward to another trip to Japan this coming February.


Mrs Adventure


In 2022, I ventured down the alphabet to officially become a Vaziry. Before our San Luis Obispo wedding in November, we were able to travel (Mammoth, Oregon, Scottsdale, Austin, Las Vegas, Miami) and celebrate Anna’s marriage to Sean. Our year was filled with love and joy on all fronts. After honeymooning in Cancun, we settled back into normal life—remote work, teaching yoga, and daily fitness classes. Commuting once a week to Carlsbad is made better by waiting out traffic with Amy at a happy hour in Solana Beach.


Mrs Frequent Flyer


In September, Sean and I got married in Carlsbad; we are still savoring what a beautiful day it was! We are so grateful to our family for how they supported us as we planned from afar and traveled back and forth for all the family festivities this year held. We are feeling more settled in Washington and enjoying the beautiful landscape. We have gotten more involved in serving at our church and are excited to see what God has in store for us in the coming year.


Ninja Organizer


These are a few of my favorite things…Spending time with the kids, a family summer trip to Havasu, celebrating our 35th anniversary in Kauai, having two weddings which come with two new sons-in-law, playing with Gigi (our grand-doodle), an occasional pickleball game, morning walks, and weekend hikes.

Quite a year! We had several exciting (well-planned) events and one unexpected. Two weddings were certainly high points. It was exciting to gather and celebrate as family…now extended! We’re thrilled to welcome McCarrell and Vaziry men and their families! Susan and I celebrated our 35th, too. Sadly, we said goodbye to my dad this year. In spirit, he celebrated with us, as we also celebrated him. A rainbow for me will be curating his woodworking tools in a woodshop of my own.
