Payton and I met in September of 2003, and were married 4 years later in Austin, Texas, on September 8th, 2007.  It was one of the best days of our lives, filled with laughter, tears, family, and friends.  3 years later, we were blessed with our greatest acccomplishment so far, our son, Charles Eli Bridges.  Eli was born on a Saturday, a full moon Saturday at that, and on a daily basis continues to inspire Payton and I to be the best people we can be to ourselves and to others.

We have both lived in Austin for over 10 years now and plan on being here for a long time.  We look forward to discovering new things about Austin and raising our children here.  We split our extra time between Plano, Carmine, and Fredericksburg visiting our families.  In any other spare time we have we love to walk around South Congress (after grabbing a coffee at Jo's, of course), play with our "other children", Cooper and Maddie, travel outside of Texas, and do pretty much any activity there is to do outside.  We love photography, Spanish guitar music, old cars, and living in the moment.

We hope you enjoy this blog that documents our lives with our new son with pictures, stories, and anything else you can imagine.
