Although we lived less than a mile from each other since 2006, we didn't meet until 2012 and started dating right after Memorial Day, 2013.
Chris is the one who initiated our first date where we sat at an outdoor cafe and talked for hours. We found out that we had a lot of things in common. After a few more dates over the summer, and after Chris made sure Frank loved baseball and the theatre, we officially became a couple over Labor Day weekend on a beach trip. Four years later we got married in Washington D.C. with our family, friends, and dog Freddie by our side.
We've known since the beginning, without a doubt, that we both wanted to be dads. With a shared passion for seeing the world, experiencing the arts, science and sports, we've never run out of things to do together and can't wait to share new experiences with our child.
We live in a very spacious two bedroom townhome and have already started preparing the room for the baby. It will be filled with sunlight, books, stuffed animals and has an extra bed for those late nights when we are doing the nighttime feedings or getting in some extra snuggles.
We love to cook, relax, and entertain in our home. We often have friends over for special events or dinners and can't wait to learn to make baby food.
We feel lucky to live in a place that is so vibrant with a lot of young families and a very strong sense of community. It is a place filled with beautiful monuments and museums that we love sharing with friends and family that come to visit often. We are grounded by our quiet neighborhood. Sometimes when we are walking our dog down our tree-lined street, we can see the Washington monument in the distance. Every time, we are reminded of how lucky we are to live in such an amazing place. As your baby grows up in our city and community, we look forward to introducing them to all the things that made us want to live here.
I am incredibly thoughtful and loving. I have a really big heart that fuels my passions. Two of which are baseball and the theatre. I LOVE the Washington Nationals. I can't wait to teach our future child all about the game! I will also teach our future child how to appreciate the arts.
I love experiencing new things and plan to surprise my family with many adventures down the road. As a dad, I will devote everything to our child. I will do whatever it takes to see our child succeed academically and plan to spend many nights helping with school projects in their future! I will make sure our child knows I will always be there.
I love to learn and discover new things so I am constantly reading. I love anything related to transportation-- planes, trains, spaceships, etc. I have so much knowledge to share with our future child! My passion for learning and discovery helps to fuel my love for travel. I will be the dad that is super involved and will help create a little explorer. When our future child expresses and interest in anything, I will take it and run with it!
