Hi, I’m Lindsay. So let’s start with the basics… ASL? Hah, jk well kind of. Born and raised in Lake Zurich, IL. Iowa Hawkeye graduate. 30 years old (at the time this was written on 11/22/14 at a local Starbucks in LZ). Currently employed at Walgreens & been there for 10 years. I really love the Wag- ask anyone. Ok, back to me. I have no idea how to really write an about me section so I will keep this short. I love to have a good time & laugh a lot. I enjoy eating, not so much the cooking- but I’ll clean! Good food is a must, and it should always be followed by a tasty treat. I love to vacation and travel to new places. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Mr. Tripp is our cat and he’s awesome. I love to plan, like a lot- so I guess that’s what makes this next chapter in my life pretty intimidating & scary, but really really exciting. I plan to add to this section after a few months in to our adventure so stay tuned..
Jeffrey Robert Mikos here. Born and raised around the Chicago area. Spent about 5 years in Milwaukee for college. Absolutely love Milwaukee. I really like cooking and trying a bunch of different foods, hanging out with friends, traveling and sports. I played basketball in college. In the last couple of years I began to take an interest in wine (mostly drinking it) and I liked having a garden when we lived in Grayslake, IL. Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. There is almost nothing that can make me laugh harder and more consistently than a game of “cup up top.” I am the youngest in my family (I have an older brother). Could this about me section be any more boring?
We’ve known each other since high school in Lake Zurich. We lived with Lindsay’s parents in 2007, bought a house in 2008, engaged in 2010 and married in 2011. In between marriage and now we spent a year living in Wicker Park, Chicago. Since August 2014 we have been living with Lindsay’s parents…again. We are like two peas in a pod. We enjoy a lot of the same things which can get us into trouble sometimes. Six short months ago we would have considered ourselves “corporate people” working full time jobs at large companies based in Chicago. We had always joked about taking a break from the day-to-day and traveling. It quickly became a reality when we couldn’t come up with one single good reason not to give this sabbatical a shot. We’re most excited for how it feels to be removed from the day-to-day routine. What’s it going to be like when the day of the week has no bearing on what we do? What will we do when we do not have to do anything? The biggest fear we have is being away from our friends and family, we’re going to miss everyone.
