Leslie is from Louisville, KY and Javier is from Punta Arenas, Chile. We met at Belmont University in Nashville, TN in 2008 and married in December 2009. Throughout the existence of our little blog, we have shared bringing our first two dogs home in 2010 and 2011, buying and renovating our Nashville house in 2011, finishing four masters degrees between the two of us, changing and restarting two careers in 2013, bringing home a third dog in 2015 and moving to Louisville KY in 2016. We originally started this blog so that Javier’s family could keep in touch with our daily lives from a distance; his whole family still lives in Chile and we don’t get a chance to talk to them on the phone as much as we’d like to. For the first 6 years we wrote every post in English and in Spanish, and covered everything from home improvements to travel to our dogs. We moved from Nashville to Louisville in 2016 so Javier could start a job as a nurse practitioner and the adventure continues, albeit in monolingual form. We hope you enjoy the ride – thanks for taking a look into the Los Rodríguez Life!
