We are excited and grateful to have the opportunity to introduce ourselves. We have been together for 4 great years and are pressing forward for many more. Our relationship started as a friendship that just keeps getting better and better. We have both learned from mistakes in our past and are willing to do the work to make our relationship better tomorrow than it is today.
Leslie and I are both registered nurses. Leslie has worked in the operating room for 19 years and I have worked in the intensive care unit for 14 years. We both enjoy the high intensity of our jobs and feel good about helping another person at the end of the day. When we are not at work we definitely like to play. Did you say outdoors? Then we are in. We enjoy activities such as hiking, bicycling, playing with our dogs, going to music concerts, traveling, and enjoying time with friends. We both like to be active, yet can enjoy an evening in to relax. We hope to share our extreme love for the outdoors and our passion for traveling with our child.
We live in a suburban residential neighborhood on the outskirts of a major city sprawling with activities and opportunities to pursue. We live in a 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, 2900 square foot home with a fenced in back yard; sitting on a quarter of an acre. We live in a very active neighborhood with children of all ages. You can see people walking their dogs, running, biking and playing with their kids during the day and into the night.
We have a fun-loving 5 yr old chocolate lab named Brodie. He is full of energy and always on the go.
I am from a family of four. I was raised in a small town in the Midwest where it was engrained in me early that handwork, determination, honesty, and integrity will yield fruitful results. I think all of these characteristics that will help in parenting.
I would like to think the traits that make me a good partner are my positive outlook on life, having fun in everything that I do, taking the time to stop and smell the roses with my wife, and my honesty and integrity. Without a trusting foundation, you have nothing.

Leslie is definitely one that was born with the maternal drive. She has wanted children since she can remember.
Leslie is someone that sees the best in everyone. She is patient, giving, encouraging, and still very much a kid at heart; all characteristics that I know will make her a great parent.
She is a great partner because she pushes me daily to be the best that I can be. She can make mundane tasks fun and keeps me laughing. Good relationships require work to keep them strong, but I had no idea how fun and positive a good relationship could be until Leslie said yes to our first date.
