We met in 2009 at a work trade show. We bonded over our love for the outdoors, travel, and food. After two years of dating, Bill proposed and we were married in Jamaica on March 3, 2012. After trying unsuccessfully to have children, we adopted Giuliana domestically in July 2015. These last two years have been the most enjoyable of our marriage. We love being parents and raising our family together. Family is extremely important to us and we are excited to add another child to ours. We have plenty of love to share and know that Giuliana will be a great sibling.
We are active and love to be outside. We love to travel and trips together as a family. We have gone camping with friends, visited friends at the lake, and to the beach. We enjoy taking our boat to the river nearby or to a lake.
Bill has a large, Italian family from Pittsburgh, PA. While he is an only child, he grew up with several cousins. Bill's parents are very active grandparents and visit often. Jen has two sisters and two nieces. Her parents live two hours away in the mountains of Virginia.
We have been blessed with great friends. We are active in our church and are members of a great couples small group. We love volunteering alongside our friends at auto care days or packing lunches for homeless shelters. Bill enjoys singing in the choir and performing in the annual Christmas production. Jen loves meeting with friends in th neighborhood to do yoga in the park. Giuliana attends birthday parties, loves her friends, and any festival with a bounce house.
We live in 1940s cape cod in a great, walkable neighborhood. We have a large back yard and live less than a mile from three playgrounds, an elementary school, a river side trail system, a large farmers market, Giuliana's preschool, and a petting zoo. On Saturdays we love to ride our bikes to the farmers market for breakfast and produce. We share a vegetable garden with our neighbors and many young families live in the neighborhood.
