Hello, nice to meet you.

We are two people who value faith, family, and friendship. 

This site is a home to things we do, things we like, and things we dream.

We hope this finds you well.

Our entire story can be found in the "us" section on this site. We have been blessed to be able to share our favorite moments through film, photos and the-bates.com over this past year. Thank you for being a part of our journey, whether it be by knowing us personally, watching our videos, or reading our blog

This is a bit of who we are.
