About Us

Thanks for stopping by! A little about us:

He’s a small town boy, from small town Indiana. She was a sun kissed islander, born a half a world away.  Only a miracle could bring them together…  

About Us


Ok so that sounds a lot more dramatic than reality, but sometimes we need a little excitement in our life! Which is how we got here…

Jem was born and raised in a small town in Indiana. He grew up playing in the woods, spending hours down at the creek and gaining an immeasurable love for the outdoors.

Kim was born in the Philippines, but her parents moved to the states shortly after so all she’s ever known is Indiana.  Unlike Jem, she grew up in the city and thoroughly enjoyed the convenience of it all.

We met in our late 20s, fell irrevocably in love and started this amazing adventure called life together.  Six years married, two fur babies and one human child later, we were satisfied with life.  And for some, satisfaction is a great place to stop.

But not for us Pattons.  

Follow our journey to becoming the NEW New Mexicans!
