The idea is that
we each have a little space for idle detail and personal musings.
Well... We met in college better than 12 years ago now. Our first
happenings were as Organic Chemistry lab partners during a summer
semester. We were geeking out playing mad scientists. Jennifer was
taking care of stray kittens and working a real job. Keith was also
studying Physiology and German that summer, and of course enjoying the
sunny southern weather. Our circles ran in wide opposite directions and
it would not be for another 2 years that our paths would cross again.
In April 1995 Jennifer arrived one morning to the apartment in
Deerfield, Florida with fresh bagels and we have been together ever
since. Within the following 3 months we graduated together and departed
for our first travels together to Europe. Everyone said that Europe
would be the litmus for us both. We both grew stronger together during
the summer months and by September 1995 we had moved cross-country to
San Francisco, California.
Our first place together was a small humble one bedroom in the Inner
Sunset at 11th and Irving. There we would stay for better than four
years while we established ourselves on the west coast. It would take
Keith almost five years to finally ask Jennifer to marry him on New
Years Eve 1999. It would take another year to pull together the wedding
and on June 17th, 2000 we were married in Annapolis, Maryland.
You will now find us living happily up north of the city in Fairfax,
California. We bought a little house in a neighborhood just west of
town. Its simple living that allows us to enjoy
the area and continue to travel.
Jennifer can be found doing all sorts of things these days.
Some days she can be found working hard on budgets and
programs for Chiron
(soon to be Novartis).
Others she's busy around the house on projects or chasing
Stella around the place. This year promises to be as interesting as can
be as she considers what new work to do on the house and of
course havina a blast with Stella.
As soon as she gets the chance she will be
adding more about what she's
Stella Cosgrove was born on September 6, 2004. She has pretty
much moved in and is doing her best to run the place. In the
months she has gone from crawling around the house to full on runnning
room to room. You can often find her pulling stuff out of the
kitchen cabinets or sometimes flipping pages in books while
sitting on her bedroom floor. Curiosity rules the priority of events
for her. Followed only second by eating food. She's
happy to put a smile on anyones face.
Keith has been digging being a dad and working with a
team that developes email security solutions. Amazingly his
latest job is within the same 5 blocks in San Francisco that he has
worked from for 10 years.
It has been more than two years since the long
hiatus from the office where his days were filled with with
both leisure and personal projects.
He now spends more time "thinking" about surfing and "dreaming" about
the days spent out in the
channel break off of Bolinas, California. This year he plans
more evenings doing bike
rides with Jennifer and Stella along trails in the Marin County Open
Space. Personal projects
are at a minimum these days as playing with Stella has taken over the
free time. Occasionally you can find him in the garage
attempting woodworking, in the back bedroom goofing on this
website, and readying for the next
