    Josh and Leah have been married for three years. They live in the Kewaunee area and are members of Prince of Peace Catholic Church. They enjoy having bonfires and cookouts in their new backyard, taking trips up north, and just relaxing with a movie or board game on the weekends.

    Josh's hobbies include watching and playing sports, specifically basketball and soccer, as well as playing video games to wind down at the end of the day. Leah's hobbies consist of reading and crafting. Together Josh and Leah enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities, whether that be having a cookout, playing outdoor games like cornhole, camping, hiking, or just sitting outside together and enjoying the sounds of nature. 


    Josh and Leah both have large extended families that are also very excited to welcome a new addition.
