Mitchell and Phoebe Reagan met by chance on a cold winter day in Denver, Colorado. She was a ski-instructor at one of the many lodges in the area, and he was on vacation with his friends, unwinding after their first semester of college. The two hit it off quickly, and found themselves gravitating to each other every chance they got, talking, laughing, sharing mugs of hot chocolate, and stealing each other's body heat in more ways than one. But, as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and soon enough Mitchell was leaving the slopes to return to California where real life awaited him, and all Phoebe had to remember him by were a few pictures, a mailing address, and a phone number - or so she thought. Two months, and a positive pregnancy test later, the young woman was forced to make some of the toughest decisions of her life; decisions that had her climbing into the driver's seat of her car and making the long drive to the address that Mitchell had left her with. She didn't expect anything from him, but she knew that - at the very least - he deserved to know that he was going to be a father.

The news was received about as well as she had expected it to be - disbelief followed by denial and a fight that could have raised the dead had they been near any cemeteries. But, what mattered to Phoebe was that he knew, regardless of how he felt, and she was back on the road the following morning, wanting nothing more than to get home where she could crawl into bed and fall apart without any witnesses. The next few months were stressful and exhausting for her. There was so much to do - things that she had never even thought about until her mother or grandmother pointed it out - and time was zipping by quicker than she liked. It felt like she would never be ready for what was to come, regardless of how much advice she received from family members. With help, though, she got through the pregnancy and labor, more thankful than she had ever been before that her parents had been more supportive than anything else, despite the disappointment they had felt over the circumstances early on. And, though she hadn't expected it, she instantly fell in love with her little boy. He was all that mattered.

For the next few years, Phoebe did what she had to do to give Trevor the kind of life that he deserved. After all, it wasn't his fault that Mitchell hadn't wanted anything to do with either of them, nor was it his fault that she'd gotten pregnant in the first place. It wasn't easy, and there were many nights where she found herself curled up in bed with tears streaming down her face because, sometimes, it was all too much. She was still so young, and she should have been out having fun with her friends. Those feelings never lasted, though, and all it took was for her to look at Trevor to know that the sacrifices she' had to make were absolutely worth it, and she would do it all over again if it meant giving him the best she possibly could. It may not have been much, but she did her best, and what he lacked in possessions, she made up for in every other way that she could. If there was one thing Phoebe was absolutely certain of, it was that her son would always know how much she loved him, and that there wasn't a thing she wouldn't do for him so long as it was in her power to do it.

A knock at the front door only three weeks after Trevor turned four yielded yet another surprise that the universe had decided Phoebe needed: an apologetic Mitchell. He was sorry. He'd been younger then. Scared. Unprepared for what his life would become, and while he knew he didn't deserve it, he wanted a chance to try and get to know his son. Phoebe resisted. She didn't trust him, and certainly didn't trust that he would stick around. The last thing she wanted was for Trevor to get close to him only for him to leave them both yet again. Mitchell never left, though. He found a job in Denver, and got a house just down the street from where Phoebe and Trevor lived. Every evening, on his way home from work, he would stop by to say hello, and see how they were doing. Sometimes, he'd bring dinner with him, and other times he'd bring Trevor gifts. Eventually (though it took almost six months), he broke Phoebe down, and the two decided to give a relationship between them a legitimate chance. After all, they owed it to themselves, and to their son, to at least give it a try.

The second positive pregnancy test came when Trevor was seven years old, and after Mitchell and Phoebe had been married for just shy of a year. It was another surprise but, this time, Phoebe wasn't at all concerned about having to do it on her own. Mitchell had proven to be great father, and very much the man she had met on the slopes during his winter vacation. In fact, because he'd missed the entirety of Phoebe's first pregnancy, he was extra attentive, conceding to her every want and whim, and just generally doing everything he could to make her happy. If that meant running off to the mini mart at three in the morning, then that's what he was doing, and if it meant foot massages at five in the morning, then he was doing that too. He knew it would never make up for the mistake he'd made while she'd been pregnant with Trevor, but he had to try if he wanted to forgive himself in the same way that Phoebe already had. And when he was the first one to hold his daughter in the delivery room after her birth, her tiny little body squirming around in his shaky grasp, he was finally able to do that.

Mackenzie was a tiny little thing who, from a young age, liked to behave as if she were at least two times her size. She was spirited and loud and rambunctious, but exceptionally loving and friendly - even to people that she didn't know (which wasn't always a good thing). Her grandma liked to say that she'd never met a stranger, and that couldn't have been more accurate. Even after the family moved from Denver, CO to Tustin, CA, Kenz was quick to make friends. From the moment she was able to walk on her own, without anyone having to help her along, she was getting into everything - especially if it was something that she shouldn't have been getting into. And once she learned how to run, Mitchell, Phoebe, and Trevor were constantly having to chase her down. She was exhausting, to put it mildly, but even at the end of the longest days, when their patience was all but spent and they were practically falling over out of sheer exhaustion, they were happy - and even that seemed like quite the understatement as far as Phoebe was concerned.

Growing up so near to Los Angeles aided in Kenzi's big dreams as she grew up. She became enamored with music, and becoming a musician. The stars in her eyes never dimmed, even when she realized that her dreams could potentially never be anything more than that. Every free moment she had was spent honing her skills on a hand me down guitar that Mitchell had bought inherited, and her school work often took a backseat to this endeavor. That didn't mean she wasn't a decent student. Her grades weren't spectacular, and she wasn't going to be getting any academic scholarships or awards, but they were enough for her to graduate on time and near the middle of her senior class. Even that didn't seem like much of an accomplishment to the young girl, though. Her sights were set on getting out of Tustin - something that she did manage to do. But, her stint in Los Angeles was short lived when she realized just how cutthroat the "industry" could be after a few years of trying to break into the business in any way that she possibly could. Slightly downtrodden, but not yet ready to give up, she left L.A. behind for Costa Mesa.

At twenty-four years old, the last thing she wanted to admit - to herself, or anyone else - was that she had already failed. So, she re-evaluated her life plan and revisited the option of college instead. It wasn't what she wanted, but it was better than the prospect of not moving forward with her life. If she couldn't do what she wanted to do professionally, then she was going to continue to work toward that goal in some form. Enter Orange Coast College and their music program, and a job as a part-time lounge singer. It's not where she wanted to be, and not what she'd hoped to accomplish when she left Tustin, but she's come to accept that it's better than nothing at all. At least she's still doing what she loves to do, and that's what she reminds herself of everyday when the prospect of getting up and dragging herself to class is a daunting one. She's still young, and still figuring her life out, but she's content with where she's at and where's going. For the time being, at least.
Facts ONE One of her earliest memories is of her listening to, and watching, her dad play the guitar. That nightly ritual became the greatest influence in her life when music became one of the most important things to her. In over two decades time, that hasn't changed. two Was gifted her first guitar, a beat up number that her dad had picked up from a local pawn shop, just before her seventh birthday and fell in love with it from the moment shet first held it in her hands. Though she has amassed quite the guitar collection over the years, she still has her first one and still counts it amongst her most prized possessions. three Music is her first love and her biggest passion, and the one thing she has always dedicated her life to even if all the work she has put into it hasn't gotten her to where she would like to be, professionally speaking. Getting a record contract and making music for a living is a dream she can't, and won't, give up on. four Though she is much better at playing the guitar and singing, she also knows how to both read and write music. five Was never very academically inclined, but took to a few subjects pretty naturally. English (literature, grammar, writing) was one of those subjects. Aside from music-related classes, it was the only subject she was very good at. Despite her dislike for all things educational in nature, she still graduated from high school with a solid 3.2 GPA. six Arrived late to her own high school graduation because she lost track of time while writing a new song. Showed up only because she knew her parents would be pretty upset if she hadn't. seven Lived in Hollywood from the age of 18 (the day following her high school graduation, in 2007) until the end of 2013 where she was pursuing a career in the music industry. When that fell through, she moved back with her parents in Tustin, CA. (Orange County) before getting an apartment of her in Costa Mesa, CA. (Orange County) where she had a few roommates before her ex-fiancé moved in with her in 2014. eight Met ex-fiancé, Mason Burke, at a house party in Hollywood shortly after moving there. Despite years worth of infidelities on his part, they were together for eight years (from 2007 until 2015) when she had an affair of her own and realized she had fallen out of love with Mason and fallen in love with Alfie. She and Alfie began dating on September 1st, 2015, after she called her engagement off. nine Worked as a waitress at 25 Degrees while living in Hollywood, as a lounge singer and cocktail waitress when she moved back to Orange County, and now as an administrative assistant at her mom's real estate agency despite not needing to work to make a living. ten Has three tattoos, to date. A treble clef on the inside of her left wrist, a quote that reads "My choice was the right choice" on her right hip, and an anchor on her right thumb. eleven Learned, through three home pregnancy tests, that she and Alfie were expecting on January 29th, 2016. Told Alfie the news a few days later. The two are currently planning for the arrival of their little one in the fall.
