About Couplehood With Craig
We have a lot of fun together being goofy and nerdy and we are almost always doing things together that we both define as epic because we are so perfectly matched. I feel safe for the first time in my life, I feel truly loved, and I appreciate every day we have together.

Kristen's Best Trait
My best trait, in my opinion, is my brain, but people frequently say that I am funny, smart, and a very genuine person, that I care about people.

Craig's Best Trait
His heart is extraordinary. I have never known anyone as wonderful, affectionate, and bonded with people as he is. He is also smart at his job and many various topics and he is responsible, which are traits I admire immensely in Craig. He is fun and funny, so I love to be around him.

Kristen's Least Awesome Trait
My brain is equally my worst quality as it is my best quality. Also, insecurity and an overall lack of self confidence is something I struggle with.

Craig's Least Awesome Trait
He is messy and not good with focused finishing of tasks.

Kristen's Catch Phrases
Teamwork makes the dream work, for the betterment of the relationship, don't feed evil so it has to go away because if it can't feed then it has no other choice, do the right thing just because it is the right thing to do, I have many phrases that I repeat often to people, be an angel in the now because peace comes from within.

Craig's Catch Phrases
Navy terms mostly that have poop and swears in them!

Kristen's Hopes and Goals For The Future
Peace, love and joy forever and ever, Amen. I also pray for our forever peaceful, loving marriage with none of the worst things people do to each other ever becoming an issue in our relationship, and that we can survive as a team feeling safe and content in our life together. As far as goals go, helping to perpetually change the world for the better and financial successes. I also hope Craig doesn't go out to sea ever again! I would be content to live happily ever after in our little life in Virginia Beach, with our writing as our common thread hopefully becoming lucrative for a retirement third income, traveling more of the world, now with my husband. Being close with Craig on many levels weaving a life we both are grateful for.
