We (Josh and Maggie) met in 2005 while doing karaoke and became best friends and partners. Josh thinks it was because of his singing but it was really just because Maggie thought he was cute and funny. We were married in 2008 and had our first child, Magnus, in 2011. Our second child, Axel, was born in 2014.
As a couple, we are pretty low-key in our day-to-day lives, and have normal routines such as going to work and being home for dinner. Josh has an office in NYC but usually works from home. Maggie works from home part-time and is getting certified to be an art teacher for elementary school kids. Josh truly enjoys skiing and Maggie is interested in learning to sail someday. We like to garden and cook on the weekends, go on hikes, BBQ, and watch nature shows. We love to travel and before we were married, we used to go on a lot of trips.
Magnus is a fourth grader who enjoys basketball and Hamilton on Broadway. Axel is a first grader who thrives on fast running and enjoys making movies. The boys are best of friends and love each other, and are also super excited by the prospect of welcoming a new brother or sister.
As a family, we love learning about animals and nature. Before the pandemic, we were focusing our trips more on places like Harry Potter World in Orlando, Florida, or summer beach vacations closer to home.
“Maggie and Josh were our role models as parents before we had our daughter last year. They are kind, fun, nurturing, and have the happiest home!”
—James and Mihwa, close friends
