we're the markhams.

or as most people know us, Casey & Aaron.

Aaron's a deep thinker, fútbol fan, mathematician & milk lover. Casey's thoughtful, loves organization, takes a lot of photos & has random spurts of crazy energy. Some of our favorite things to do include dancing together in the kitchen, eating freshly baked chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven, & taking road trips while listening to Harry Potter audiobooks. We love Jesus more than anything else & our ultimate desire is to glorify God in our marriage as we go wherever we're called to share our love of Jesus with others.

In case you haven't met us, here's a very quick run-down of our story. We met as seniors in high school at a summer program in Charleston. Then Aaron went to Furman & Casey went to Duke. After dating for quite some time, we finally got married in September of 2015 back in Charleston, the city where it all began.

We spent our first two years of marriage living in Greenville, SC before moving to Nairobi, Kenya in September of 2017. While in Greenville, Aaron completed a master of divinity degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary & Casey ran her own wedding photography business. Currently, we live in Nairobi and work for the amazing organization CARE for AIDS.

This blog is our way of sharing stories and updates from doing life in a new culture. We know that many adventures are in store and we can't wait to see how God is going to grow us, change us and work through us.
