Hi, my name is Elise and my handsome husband is Jamie. We are the Dear family. I cook a lot, craft, dance, knit, and I get dressed almost everyday (I don't consider it fashion, but I wear loads of dresses!). My blog Dear Family, is about all of those things, with a little husband thrown in. Husband is a pilot and loves all things apple, including the fruit. We love Jesus, Colorado, South Africa, coffee, public transportation, bike rides, farmer's markets and swing dancing. I love meeting new people and would love to hear from you! Please visit and we can sit down to a virtual cup of coffee. Because everything is better with coffee.
