I remember walking up the stairs to the dark auditorium of Pulaski High School in August of 2014. Sam and I had just moved back to Milwaukee. Although I would tell everyone that things were great the fact was that we didn’t know anyone, and for an extroverted person like myself, I was struggling with being “new” to the Milwaukee area again after 7 years away from home. We were trying out a new church: Crossway Milwaukee. Most churches we had tried since moving back were faithful churches, but the thing that made Crossway different was that the people were SO NICE! Especially these two! Emily and Kyle welcomed us warmly from the moment they met us that day and were one of the reasons we kept coming back! Since then, they have grown to be some of our closest friends. We have raised kids together, shared in their struggles and joys and laughed a lot!
With the addition of their newest daughter, I was super excited to get some photos of them as a family of four. You can definitely see their joy and love for each other in these photos! Love this family!
