Thanks for stopping by! We are the VanDans; this is our family blog.
Dad: Danny | Mom: Annie | Big Sis: Cadence | Lil Sis: Everly

Our family in Avon, Colorado for our one and only summer trip, July 2020.

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! Our first daughter, Cadence was born on March 8, 2018!

Married on July 1, 2017 in San Diego

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! On November 5, 2019, our second daughter Everly joined our family!

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 moved to San Diego, where we got married and lived with Cadence her first year of life. We are now back in Denver raising both girls in this post-COVID era.
