About Us

Hi! My name is Sam and I'm the main blogger around here. Hal and I have been married since 2008. We were married in the Salt Lake Temple, if you'd like to know more about our religion, please visit here. Hal and I met at our local singles ward. He had been home for 16 days from serving a mission for our church for two years. I was apparently too irresistible though, and we have literally been together ever since. We are adventurers at heart and are returned from living and serving in Cambodia with the Peace Corps in 2012. We moved to Washington DC in 2013 for an internship and never left.

You can read about how it all began here.
And all about our wedding here.

Recent BYU Accounting Graduate. He's now working as an Assurance auditor in the DC area. Former Health Awareness Volunteer in the Peace Corps. He loves longboarding, snowboarding, and playing games he can win at.

She is working as an Legal Administrative Assistant and recently became a certified doula. She is a retired Village High School English Teacher.  She is no longer a studying addict and has her BS in Anthropology. She loves sleeping, reading, eating, and doing yoga.

Together we make up Samnhal, a couple trying to add spontaneity into their lives by making crazy decisions like joining the Peace Corps and moving across the country from all our family. We love trying new foods, going on trips, and playing with our kitty cats.
