Who We Are
Our story begins when we met in Hoboken, NJ in the fall of 2012. We struck up a fast conversation and realized very quickly we both had many things in common, amongst them mutual careers in real estate, love for arts and sports in general, specifically football. Also, we learned that we lived on the same street, just a few blocks away from each other. After dating for two years, Patrick proposed to CJ on the roof of a building in Manhattan as the sun set on a fall day. About a year later, we married in Nantucket, Massachusetts, an island in the Atlantic, surrounded by our families and friends. This was a special place as it was our first vacation spot together and has become a yearly vacation tradition. We moved across the river from New Jersey and now live together in upper Manhattan in South Harlem, and both work in New York City. Since we first met, we always knew we wanted children and look forward to building our family and writing the next chapter of our story together.
We spent Labor Day weekend in Cincinnait, OH and had a great time! First, it was CJ’s grandparents 60th wedding anniversary - YES – 60! CJ is the oldest of eight cousins and it’s not often everyone gets together in one spot and we had a wonderful time catching up. One of Patrick college classmates had their wedding this weekend and she is from Cincinnati so we were able to attend the festivities. It was fun to have all our mutual New York friends in Cincinnati to enjoy CJ’s hometown. We both love ammusment parks and we spent the day at Kings Island (CJ’s first job at “Ice Scream Zone”) and rode every roller coaster in the park.
Being around all our family and friends we get so excited to meet our baby and building our own family routines & traditons. We are very lucky to have such a large and supportive group of friends in our life.
After a fun filled weekend it feels great to be home and back with our fur baby, Hamlet.
We just returned from a week-long vacation with Patrick’s family in the Greenbrier West Virginia. It is a resort in the mountains that Patrick’s family has been going to for over 30 years. All fourteen of us including our adorable five nieces and nephews ranging from 10 months to 10 years old were there. We really enjoyed spending time with everyone, swimming at the pool, eating ice cream and Patrick even went horseback riding twice. It was fun to watch our ten-month old niece Everly begin to learn to walk all around the cottage. We also got some great puzzle and lego building time with our nephews who are both growing up so fast. We both love being outdoors and the West Virginia mountains a stunning spot to play golf, hike or even morning tennis. We hope to share our love of the outdoor and sports with our child. The highlight of every day was everyone getting together for a big family dinners.
We had a great time and can’t wait to bring our child to explore new areas in the future and build our own family vacation traditions. =)
