Their Story:

We met in high school and were friends for a couple of years. Then Jaime asked me to become his girlfriend. We were together for about a year before he moved to California, where he lived for a couple of years. Then, Jaime returned to Mexico and proposed to me.

We got married in 2001, then moved to California and had our first two kids in Santa Barbara and lived there for six years. Some friends invited us to visit them in Bentonville during the summer of 2008. We immediately fell in love with the area and moved that same year in the fall. We lived in Northwest Arkansas for about four years and had our third child. Jaime got a job offer in Conway in 2012, and we decided to move here. Our last two kids were born here.
