Hello, and welcome to our little family blog! We’re the Custances, Kelly & Nathan. We’re passionate about learning, growing, and adventures! We’re huge foodies, and we love being outdoors and exploring as much as we can.
In March of 2016, we welcomed our first kiddo into this world, Clark. He is the light of our life, and we enjoy watching him grow.
A little about me (Kelly):
I was born and raised on the Arizona side of the Tri-State Area (Arizona, California, Nevada) by two Southern California Natives. I grew up swimming, boating, and floating down the Colorado River (when it wasn’t a scorching 120 degrees outside). I was homeschooled (by my wonderful mom!) for 6 years alongside my brother. I graduated from our local public school at the age of 17 with an entire semester of college under my belt. I love learning. Love it. I’m fascinated by history and art, and I’m particularly passionate about photography. I graduated in 2014 with an Associates of Science Degree with an Emphasis on Digital Photography & Technology (whew, that was a mouthful wasn’t it?), and I plan on going back to school soon to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.
I’m an introvert by nature, but I love people. I’m totally socially awkward, but I’ve learned to embrace it. I could easily eat Mexican food every day of my life and be completely satisfied. Not even kidding. Oh, and I’m unapologetically a dog person. #sorrynotsorry
A little bit about Nathan:
Nate was born and raised in BEAUTIFUL, sunny, Laguna Beach, California. (The level of my jealousy over this will never diminish. But whatevs.) He grew up pretty much doing awesome stuff like most coastal residing Californians do, I imagine.
He was adopted as a baby, and raised by the most wonderful couple. His mom owns and operates her own catering company, and his dad is a music professor.
It should come as no surprise, that Nathan is an incredible cook, and an amazing musician. He played several sports in High School, was in Choir, and was the bass guitarist in a band (that performed at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, how cool is that?).
Nathan is extremely passionate about Music, and can find something he likes in just about every genre there is. My favorite memory of him while we were dating is when he showed up at my door and serenaded me with Andrea Bocelli. Yup. Happened.
Nathan makes pretty much everyone around him feel like his best friend. I haven’t decided if he’s an extrovert or an inter He’s a total geek. He loves video games, comic books, and the like. And as much as he dislikes the mundane nature of traditional school, he’s a total nerd. He’s constantly reading.
