I’m Analisa, and ill be most of the talking on this adventure. My better, very handsome half is Zachary (Zach) and we are the Jolley’s. Were the ones in the above photo. (I know, couple goals) We met back way back in high school, and all throughout high school, we both had mutual friends and knew of each other but were never super close. But we reconnected after Zach got back from a church mission in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when he slid in the DM’s. (Its 2019 that’s how the magic happens now a days ok) It took a few tries but I finally agreed to a rad date to a Fall Out Boy concert and obviously the rest is history. We got hitched on March 7th, 2019 and have been in our own little bubble ever since leaving March 8th, 2019 to travel. That thing called “the honeymoon phase” is still a thing for us because we literally have been living a dream ever since we said “I do”.
Before we even met, we both grew up sharing a love of exploring new places, and trying new things. Zach did a lot more exploring than me, even while dating; when he went to multiple countries such as Japan, China, Bora Bora, Thailand and more. I on the other hand was always spending money on food or clothes, and was limited to taking cheap in state road trips, or taking flights around the U.S. Still, I loved being outside and exploring places I had never seen before. When we met we immediately founded our mutual interest in traveling, and hoped maybe one day we could take cool trips to the ruins of Machu Picchu, or eat crepes while overlooking the Eiffel Tower. When deciding where to live when we got married, we looked at many different places to live but nothing felt like home. Then we realized home for us, is wherever we are together. So we decided to pack our things, and embark on an adventure of a lifetime. A dream for the both of us.
