Mae and Nate met online more than twelve years ago. She was a blogger and college student in San Diego, California; he was a web developer in Detroit, Michigan. After a few months of long distance dating, she packed up her life and moved to Detroit. Five years later, they were married with a Wheaten Terrier "son" named Max. Enticed by the thought of a change of pace and a life in paradise, they moved to Honolulu, Hawaii in 2011. Now, they build websites together.
