Hi guys! First blog post as a newly engaged woman! I am excited to introduce A Doering Lifestyle. Creatively thought of using my (almost) married name, Doering (pronounced door-ring)
My fiance, Jonathan and I have known each for 16 years and have dated on and off for 12 years. Needless to say he’s my best friend and we’re excited to take this next step in our relationship.
So without further ado…… Let’s welcome these important people…………….
We got engaged on September 27, 2017 and our wedding date has yet to be set, but we are aiming for Summer 2019.
He works for UPS since 2004 (right out of high school) Jonathan shares my love for travel, movies and food! He doesn’t like to announce it, but he can throw back cookies like no other. He’s the absolute definition of a cookie monster.
Meet my sisters;
HALEY (L)+ KAITLAND (R)
My tiny tot of a half-sister, Haley was a surprise baby. But the loveliest person you’ll ever get to meet. She’s driven for academics, loves to laugh and a goof ball at heart . Did I mention she’s a Valentine’s Baby! All the more reason to say we LOVE her!
Kaitland is our dearest rebel. However, she is kind and has a soft heart. She loves music, a pianist from her finger tips to her toes. She has taught herself how to read music and has marveled at every instrument. It’s a footloose kind of life in Kaitland’s world.
CHELSEA + STEPHANO + MICHAEL
Chelsea is closest to me in age and in relationship, my twin pillar. I am so proud of my Marine sister! She enlisted about 3 years ago and continues to amaze us all with how strong she is mentally & emotionally. She recently became a mama’ to my baby nephew Michael (March 2017) We are absolutely lucky to have him in our lives! He is quite the bundle of joy. Chelsea married my brother-in-law, July 2016. He’s the best husband to my sister and a great example of a man to my nephew.
MOM + CARY
Mom, what can I say, she’s my twin and my first best friend. She’s multi-talented (probably where Kaitland got it from) and our biggest supporter.
She’s caring and an extremely hard worker. She stays active by chasing after Haley and being involved in all her school activities. I’m sure she never thought she’d be a “soccer mom” again! 🙂 All in all, she loves her all of us and we get along quite nicely!
Cary, is my step-dad and is the only dad, I’ve ever known. He plays the electric guitar and works in Sales and Marketing. Often times, he’s there to “tell it like it is” and a fairly intense man. But with a wife like my mom, it’s hard not to get him to chuckle every now and again.
If you haven’t noticed were a very laugh out loud kind of family. They’re my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s completely unfortunate we’re two whole states away from each other and I tend to miss them often.
Sit-back and enjoy the read……..
