We met in high school and dated for ten years before we got married. We have always loved adventure and change. We have lived in several states in the US and for two years in Switzerland for Peter’s work.
Currently, we live in Livingston, MT, and we plan on making Livingston our permanent home. We recently purchased a ranch here and are remodeling it to be our own.
On our many adventures, we raised two wonderful boys. Our oldest son is a software engineer, and our youngest son is an entrepreneur in the computer field. Peter and I are now pursuing our dreams by starting our own ranching business together.
Peter and I have always loved the outdoors, nature, and being physically active. For me, it started in my early childhood. My father was a professional freestyle skier, and I learned to ski when I was 18 months old. My parents also had me swimming, ice skating, dancing, and horseback riding all before the age of 6 years-old.
Pete loved being active at an early age. He was involved in several organized sports from elementary school to high school; his real passion for exercises ripened during college. He is an avid hiker, skier, and CrossFit fanatic. We enjoy camping, kayaking, ice skating, and traveling together; which is how this page came to life.
Since moving to Montana, we have found many more opportunities to explore the outdoors and enjoy our favorite activities. We created this site, blog, and YouTube channel to share all our experiences and inspire others to get outside and unlock a passion of their own. No matter what level we are at we still get out there and try. Looking silly together makes the adventure that much more fun. It is the simple act of trying that inspires us to experience new challenges and feel “Pretty Rugged” doing it! Join us on our adventures and find your Pretty Rugged experience.
