Hello world! We are the Gee family. Just your average young family exploring the planet 😉
Our parents originally met in a flower shop in Vladivostok, Russia. They were both missionaries serving for the LDS Church. They later courted and married while attending Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. Settie graduated in Communications and Garrett finished his eligibility with the BYU Soccer team in 2015 and then dropped out. We were going to take the typical next step in life and “grow up” and build a house and settle into careers..buuut how bout not! We’re not quite ready for that. We feel like we still have so much to learn about life and happiness before we can set up our future life and home.
That’s why we started our family bucket list. We decided as a young family that now was the time to form healthy habits and create traditions that will hopefully shape us into better people the rest of our lives.
I love my fam and find pure joy in raising my 3 kids : Dorothy, Manilla, ..and Garrett.
I’m originally from Denver, Colorado. When I was 21 I moved to Vladivostok, Russia to serve a mission for my church. That’s where I learned a deep LOVE for serving others and experiencing new cultures.
I graduated and began working as an online marketer and web developer. For 2 years I worked to support our family while Garrett worked on his crazy ventures. His hard work began to pay off and I was able to change careers from “bread winner” to “bread maker” 😉
I love exercising, nutrition, and cooking. I’m excited to try new workouts and hopefully learn some great cooking from different cultures around the world.
I also like dark chocolate, Michael Bolton, the Denver Broncos, Nike, scuba diving, bad ABC TV series, gardening and looking at the stars.
I’m really close with my parents and siblings. We chat almost everyday. Now I’m grateful I get to start my own family with our own closeness and traditions together.
Many people have questioned why we are traveling now and not waiting until our children are older and will be able to remember these experiences better. I think there will always be reasons to put things like this off. And there are of course, tons of reasons to worry. But I already worry about my kids at home every day. 😉 What better way to teach my kids about animals or foods or how to be kind to everyone than by taking them around the world to do it in person?
