(Goss Household Profile)
Kenzie Goss (66 years), Tyler (64 years)
After raising children for about forty-six years, it was time for Kenzie and Tyler to downsize their home. Dean was a junior at EU, and it didn’t sound like he’d be needing his old bedroom after graduation. He didn’t know exactly what he was going to do, but he had options, and so they sold their home.
Etienne Bernard (42 years), Violet-Adele McCarthy (39 years),
Two months until forty, more than two years worth of negative pregnancy tests. Her entire life seemed to have passed in a blur until she started trying for a baby. Each month was agonizingly long, each phone call was intrusive, and each menstruation was an utter disappointment.
Marshal and Lorelei Krouse celebrate their ninth anniversary. They can barely believe how much they’ve been through since their wedding day all those years ago. Their nine month old son, Otto is the biggest surprise to Lorelei, as she had thought one would be fulfilling enough, but she has no regrets.
Adam Brindley (32 years), Paloma (31 years),
narrated by: Paloma
Our bakery was celebrating its one year anniversary, and we had decided to release a blueberry cheesecake to commemorate the occasion.
We had gotten into a routine with Adam cooking breakfast while I got ready, but recently I was coming down with him and rummaging through the fridge.

John Russo (76 years), Zeke Traver (46 years), Morgan (45 years), Cicely (15 years), Vivienne (15 years)
Morgan had to work on the twins’ actual birthday, so they’d gotten permission to go shopping with some girls from school, and they scheduled the family pool party for later in the month. With great persistence, the girls had talked her into a co-ed birthday party. They insisted that turning fifteen and being banned from boys was archaic, and Morgan wasn’t swayed. It wasn’t until they exclaimed that Lewis had ruined their lives did she relent.

Alice London (27 years), Julia Millett (26 years)
narrated by: Alice
Having Julia for a roommate has been great, we’ve been close friends since grade school. We don’t mind doing mundane things together ether, like meeting up on Thursday after work, and getting groceries together. Lainey was a bit of a dictator over groceries that I mostly just paid her and picked up my own stuff after work. It’s actually a decent time with Julia though.
Isaac Gavigan turns 29 this February, and after a hard night of partying, feels lucky that he gets to carry his very drunk wife home. Lauren is going to feel it in the morning, and Isaac thinks that brunch is in order. He’s really hoping that this year will go slower than the last few have; he feels ill-prepared to turn thirty.
