Our names are Jessica and Edward Proctor.
Jessica is 34 years old and Edward is 35 years old.
We do not yet have any children.
Jessica works full-time for Pendleton Woolen Mills as an Inventory Planner and has a flexible work schedule. She likes reading, baking, cooking, drawing, painting, running, watching movies, and seeing musicals.
Edward works full-time for Nordstrom as a Chef and has a flexible work schedule. He likes skateboarding, cooking, running, hiking, reading, watching movies and gardening.
We celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas by sharing meals with our immediate families (sometimes separate and sometimes all together). We also like to celebrate birthdays with our families. We started going apple picking many years ago when we lived in California and we have carried on the tradition in Oregon. We are looking forward to creating new traditions.
We live in the State of Oregon in the city of Hillsboro, which is about 15 miles from downtown Portland.
We live in a townhouse on a cul-de-sac in a suburban area. We have a backyard and live next to a large green space and have various trails and playgrounds within walking distance.
We have four indoor kitties.
We have no children, but we each have experience with kids. Edward has three younger sisters and worked at a daycare center in high school. Jessica led the middle school youth group at her former church for two years during college. We have several friends with children who we have spent lots of time with, as well as a four year old niece and 5 month old nephew that we see as much as possible.
We have both read The Connected Child and The Five Love Languages of Children. Additionally, Jessica will be taking an introductory psychology class this Fall.
