We are The Uptons, a little family with huge dreams. PJ is a dreamer, wanderer, and creative thinker. He loves wide open spaces where he can explore, build, and develop. He would absolutely live by himself off the land in the Alaskan wilderness if it weren't for his other half.
Cassie is a designer, adventurer, and creative soul. She loves taking risks and jumping head first into the unknown. She would totally spend every day floating in a crystal clear ocean with a 5 star resort waiting for her on the shore in literally any tropical location.
We met, became friends, fell in love, moved to a new city, dated forever, and got married in June of 2014. You can hear more about our blog story in this episode of our podcast. We were blessed with our sweet Adelaide Shae in January 2017, she changed our lives and our hearts forever. We wouldn't be complete without our fur baby scooter, a jack russel, beagle mix with attachment issues and a huge heart. Our little family is perfect.
Philip Marie is a place for husband and wife teams to find community with other couples that are venturing out on this crazy journey of marriage and entrepreneurship. We want to connect with other couples that are working towards personal growth, reaching their goals, and mapping out a future of their own design. Couples that are striving to be who they were created to be.
On our website you can find podcasts where we interview other husband and wife teams for tips on business, relationships, and the unique task of combining the two. You will also find videos, and resources for business, leadership, personal growth, wellness, and overall life balance (or as much balance as possible) all to encourage you to build your business and life and to live fearlessly free.
We also share our journey as a husband and wife team through all of life's ups and downs and transitions. we hope this little space online is a source of inspiration for you to follow your dreams and live a life that makes you happy.
PJ and Cassie have a huge heart for the world they live in and feel called to give back in any way they can. We came across The Sparrow Fund in a crazy fun way that you can hear more about in this podcast episode. The Sparrow Fund is and organization committed to encouraging and supporting families in the adventure of adoption. They do this by providing training and connecting opportunities as well as grants to families in financial need to enroll in programs specifically designed to provide counsel and comprehensive medical reviews of their referred child. They are also deeply invested in supporting China's orphans and those who care for them. Learn more about what they do or how you can get involved by visiting their website here.
Philip Marie is currently donating 10% of their total revenue to The Sparrow Fund
