We are Vinny and Bernadette. We met 7 years ago on an online dating site. From that first date we both new we were meant to be together. After six months of dating Vinny popped the question at a Vineyard. I love telling people this story of how Vinny planned out the day he was going to pop the question. The story is actually quite funny, when Vinny was planning to propose I actually planned the entire day with out even knowing it lol. That week he had asked if I wanted to go wine tasting and if I could look up vineyards that we can go to. So I was like sure, I like wine sounds like plan. So I went ahead and looked up three places for that weekend, even though he actually had the day all planned. Vinny kept it a complete secret from everyone except for my Dad. My Mom can’t keep a secret and he couldn’t tell his parents they so bad at keeping secrets too. The day he proposed to me was so amazing and so unexpected I was completely so blown away, I remember him asking “it’s yes, right” lol. We have been married for 6 years and every day still feels like the first time we met. We can't say that every minute has been easy, we have had to work really hard for some things, like trying to conceive a baby to getting our home in order and now hoping to find a child to bless our home with. We are lucky because we are the same in so many ways.
We always try to please one another and enjoy the little things in life. Like relaxing on a Giant Rock on a lake at Arcadia National Park to dinner and movie on Date Night. We enjoy traveling to different places learning new things. We enjoy decorating our home for every Holiday especially Christmas. We both can get a little carried away with decorations. It makes us happy and everyone who shares it with us seems to enjoy it too.
We live in family oriented community with great schools offering every opportunity one can ask for. We are surrounded by family and friends we enjoy spending time with. We can not wait to share all our adventures, home and especially our love to a child.
We love our home and can't wait to share it with a child. We have worked very hard to make this house our home. We live in a close nit small community on Long Island, New York. We are in walking distance to a park, our town beach and local marina.
We enjoy taking our bikes down to the docks and watching the boats or taking walks down to our beach and enjoying the sand and sun.
We are surround around great neighbors who also have young children that someday can become friends with our child. We enjoy spending time with them whether it's a BBQ at any of the homes or just hanging around out front on the stoop talking to each about our day.
This baby will grow up with so many fun things to do and great people around them. We can wait to share our life with he or she.
I am having such a hard time writing about myself. I knew I have always wanted to be a mother. Life doesn't always pan out the way you hoped/wished it to go. I am grateful for everything else in my life and I know this was the path I was set out to take on and I can not wait for the day to hold this little miracle in my arms and watch he/she grow up to an incredible person.
I come from a very close family. My parents are Italian immigrants who came here to better themselves. They have always been very supportive of my siblings and I. My parents direction truly marked the person that I have became today. I am a hardworking, dedicated, kind, honest person because of them. I hope to instill this in our child.
After High school I wasn't sure what to do. I ended up going away to Collage and I studied Culinary Arts. I always loved food and thought this was a good idea. My career in the Culinary field didn't last long. It was a lot of crazy hours and I began to loose my inspiration. For the last 13 years I have been working for a Printing/Box company. I love my job and I love what I am doing. I have moved up through the years and I enjoy teaching others.
I have two younger siblings a Brother and a younger Sister. We have always been very close and that still stands today.
I love being an aunt. It prepares me for when my day comes to being a mom. I have 4 amazing nephews all unique in there own ways. My nephews Rocco and Dominic are the oldest they are huge Hockey fans and Vinny and I try to see them as often as we can. Then we have Joey my Brother's son he is almost 4. He loves riding his bike and playing with his train set that Vinny and I started for him. The youngest of the bunch is Everett Luca my Sister's baby he is so cutest thing I love watching him ride around the house and his smile when I yell out his name.
I come from a big family so I can't wait for our child to be in the mix and watch all of them grow up together and build the memories as my siblings, cousins and I have done in the past.
I am looking forward to teaching he/she about where they came from I can not wait to watch them grow up. I will love and support them each step of the way just as I was. I want to share all that life has to give and build a life time of memories they to will appreciate when they are older.
I feel I am a strong caring, loving person I will do all that I can for someone. I can't wait to be a dad it is something I have always wanted. I want to pass on all the things I have learned in my life, fun and important. I want to let them learn new things and find out what they are interested in and encourge them to chase their dreams. Give unconditional love and raise a good person who will always feel love, cared for protected and will know they can accomplish anything.
I believe the little moments matter a lot from the daddy daughter/son trips for ice cream to just playing outside teaching them how to ride a bicycle. I can see my self pushing a wheel barrel doing my gardening and them close behind pulling there red wagon wanting to help.
I believe in encourgment and morals and doing the right thing even when it is hard is important.
I have a great family. My parents, sister her husband and her two sons. I see them as much as possible but not enough. Growing up I was close to my mom, my dad worked alot. I consider myself extremely lucky because I spent many years working with my dad as I got older and experience I would not change for anything. My mom was born in Brooklyn, NY and my dad just outside Naples, Italy. My dad came here when he was just 8 years old.
For the last 10years I have worked in a construction, in a Laborers Union. I enjoy my job it is very important to enjoy what you do for a living.
