About Us


We are Luc, Kara, and Charlie. Luc and I are both graduates of Illinois State University. Luc and I originally met while "youth representatives" to the Illinois Great Rivers Annual Conference for the United Methodist Church in June 1998. In the fall of 1999, we were both attending ISU, ISU's Wesley Foundation, and living three floors apart in Watterson Towers (one of the world's largest residence halls). Our first date was to a movie playing at Capen Auditorium on campus. From there the rest is history. 

We married June 28, 2003, following graduation, and have been laughing at each other, and traveling ever since. 

 
Luc is a Chicago sports fanatic. He has also become a beer and coffee snob over the years.
Kara loves to bake and read.
Charlie, Charles Howard Kibreab, is our son and came home March 2012. He is amazing and grows every day. He loves Jake and the Neverland Pirates, books, watching hockey, playing, making us laugh, and smiling.
Joey Ramone is our dog and first born. He loves animal crackers (limited at this moment due to his weight), cuddling, walks, and sleeping.
