We should have known…


When two people from extremely different backgrounds partner up and start a family, their lives are ruined. Completely and utterly ruined. In the best way possible. Usually…or, at least sometimes. 

We have discovered that, for us to be able to live to our full potential, both individually and as a family, we needed to abandon our assumptions of what our lives would look like, and embrace the reality that we’re an unconventional family. And unconventional families require an unconventional approach to life.

It took far too long for us to realize we needed to do things our way. And, frankly, we don’t even know what “our way” is. At least not yet, but we’re figuring it out. And, most likely, so are you.  

And that’s why we created The Vā. It’s a space for us to explore what “our way” is (or isn’t), to connect with others like you who are finding their way, and to learn along the way.

Tālofa! Welcome to The Vā. We’re the Northrup’s.
