It was pretty close to love at first sight. We met at 14 and I knew there was something special about her. We were good friends for 8 years through high school and college before we started dating. I think that base helped us to be more than just husband and wife. We are best friends.
We recently moved to a suburb north of Milwaukee. We chose this neighborhood because of the fantastic school system, proximity to work, and more space to grow our family. We have a nice big yard and plenty of space inside to play as well. We have four bedrooms and a great playroom that the kids love. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen and dining room hanging out and doing typical family activities.
