Mike and I met 17 years ago at work. We worked for a very large restaurant/banquet facility that had a large catering business, hotel and restaurant.
We have always worked together and continue to do so.
We left our jobs to open our own restaurant so we and some of our team that made the change and came with us, would have better work/life balance and the flexibility to make our own hours.
I now work from home, we have more time off, more time together and are so happy we made the change, our restaurant is 3 years old now and enables us more and more freedom each year.
We spend our free time with our dogs and our families. We live and work within 10 miles of each of our parents and siblings.
We each have nieces and nephews so there will be lots of other kids around.
We like to read, listen to music, walk the dogs, have Sunday family dinners and Mike likes movies.
We like to take several vacations a year, some with family, some on our own, we travel inside and outside our country, eating at a lot of different restaurants is something we enjoy doing, it's a great way to meet people from the area and experience the culture the area has to offer.
Mike and I want to get down on the floor and play, be active and attentive with our child, as our parents were with us.
We can't wait to grow our family to include children. We will not rely on day-care, we look forward to being hands on in every way.
We will be supportive, understanding, loving and caring, we will provide a home full of patience and opportunity.
We hope to meet you soon!
We live in a nice suburb with great schools, parks, weekend activities.
We can walk to a park with a rock climbing wall, swings, courts.
There are always kids riding bikes and playing in the neighborhood.
We are a short drive to our lake house in the summer and a short drive to the mountains in the winter.
We have a big, fenced in back yard for the dogs and lots of play time.
Mike is patient and kind. He is passionate about many things. He enjoys reading (almost too much), he loves his family, his nieces and nephews and his dogs!
He is a very talented Chef, he attended a very prestigious culinary college where he graduated with honors, he is highly regarded in our industry and more importantly by his peers.
In addition to running our successful restaurant, he is a culinary instructor at a local community college where the students love and respect him and request his classes.
In his free time, he likes to rock climb, hike, ski and spend time outside.
He will make an amazing Father, he loves getting down on the floor and playing with all the kids in our family.
He's a loving, respectful man with a great family and great family values.
I love my Mother, I have been so fortunate to have a great role model like her to teach me though her words and actions. My Mother has shown me endless amounts of unconditional love.
She loves her family more than anything in this world.
I hope to be 1/2 the Mother my Mom has been. She has a way of turning simple Sunday dinners into special, memorable moments.
I talk to my Mother every day, we live close so we are able to share a lot of Sunday dinners and time together.
I love animals, all animals, my dream is to have a rescue farm where all animals can come and safely live out their natural lives.
I am fortunate that when the time comes, I can be a stay at home Mom.
I love having music on and dance around the house with the dogs. I enjoy reading, biking, playing games, attending games and activities our nieces and nephews are involved in and traveling.
My favorite time of the day is when I am walking the dogs, or doing something to enjoy the beauty outdoors.
I love our earth and try to do my part and be conscious of our waste and recycle as much as we can.
