1-Gender Reveal

Thanks for stopping by! We are the VanDans; this is our family blog.
Dad: Danny VanDan | Mom: Annie VanDan | Baby: Cadence VanDan

My husband and I got married on July 1, 2017. We were affectionately known as #DannieDyad for the combination of our names “Dannie” and the word “dyad” meaning a pair. Shortly after, we found out we were pregnant with a baby girl on the way! Cadence is due on March 11, 2018! Looks like we will be a triad very soon!


We wanted to start this blog to document her first years of life (and however long we can stick to this!). We also wanted to connect with other families and share helpful tips we’ve learned as new parents about marriage, parenting, travel, daily household happenings, and more!

We are a mixed Chinese-Vietnamese family raising a child with an American upbringing. There are few blogs out there sharing this experience! Please join us on our journey!

I grew up in Denver, CO where I met Danny in 2013 when he moved there for his first job after optometry school. We dated for a few years and moved to San Diego in November 2016. We are enjoying our life together as a SoCal family and currently nesting as we prepare for our little one’s arrival.
