🤕🧟♀️🥴🧟♂️😱 HI! Yep, that’s us! If you are new to our profile, today you will get a little snippet of who we are as we talk about RISK! We are Kurtis and Dayana, raising our two boys in an ultimate DIY fixer upper venture to turn a normal suburban estate into a place where our many passions invite others to pursue theirs fearlessly! Over 5 years ago we risked our own dreams of adoption to make sure a brand new baby girl would never have to wonder why her birth mama couldn’t keep her. Walking away still as a family of 4 was never our initial plan, but what we gained was a satisfaction of knowing we did the right thing. Sometimes doing the right thing, means jumping into the scariest free fall and trusting God will carry gently to solid ground. We later sold our “American dream” home without knowing what was next and we landed in a place where our imaginations could run wild with project ideas and so the renovations began! In all of this, we opened a lot of yucky doors some of which include injuries: grinders slice knuckles, ladders fall and ribs are broken, bee stings and allergies develop, fire burns and chemical burns, oh and there’s always the poison oak battles. Frustrations and setbacks a prime breeding ground for depression and desperate measures. We both have struggled in ways even the closest people to us, sometimes even each other, were unaware at the internal spiral. Is this our every day? No, but it’s part of the life we have chosen. Would we call ourselves risk-takers? Not necessarily, maybe leap of faith “jumpers” if there is such a thing. What we can tell you is that for what feels like the first time since the adoption journey, we are both steady at the same time! How that is possible after launching our own business, with little in the bank well before we had planned??? We would say it’s because we did some heavy spiritual house cleaning of our hearts earlier this year and our God is a faithful provider! A friend just popped in for advice on chasing a dream after divorce and said “I had to see what you thought since you’re the bravest person I know!” WOW😭 Now TAG the BRAVEST person you know; they may be clueless to their courage!
