About Me

Ira Petersen, 2013

Hi! My name is Iryna, but I go by – Ira (Why? You can ask me why when we meet).

I am a proud Ukrainian and a happy wife to one amazing man that makes me laugh like no other and a mother to a beautiful, smart little girl and a happy, chunky little boy. I met my husband (Aaron) while he was living in Ukraine for work, but never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that one day I would fall in love with an American and follow him half way around the world to Phoenix, AZ.

We love to travel and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Going out for breakfast with my family on the weekends and spending time with friends are two of my favorite things to do.
