We are excited to introduce you to Peter & Traci!
We have known Peter for almost 20 years. We have also know Peter to be goal driven and independent. So when Peter texted Mark to grab dinner to talk about a girl, we knew he was in trouble in all the right ways.
Peter and Traci were friends first and have done a lot of intentional work to navigate the transition from best friends to seriously dating and now marriage. One of the most notable things about them is how they blend the combination of competitiveness and fun. If you spend time with them, you will laugh...A LOT. You will also inevitably end up making a game of something. It will be fun, but no matter how ridiculous the made up game or scenario is, there will be a winner!
As Peter and Traci worked through all the things that come with preparing for marriage, they definitely made it fun, and their competitive nature adopted a "we can do this" perspective. Achieving their shared goals and desires is the new competition, and we are confident this is something they will crush...together!
