We were raised in Minnesota by our wonderful parents and grew up about 20 minutes from each other, but didn't meet until college. We started out as friends, then began dating. After a year of dating, Eric surprised her by proposing in his apartment at a friend's birthday party. Of course, Megan said yes! We were married a year later in a church in Megan's hometown. After the ceremony, we had a big reception and honeymooned in Wisconsin at a bed and breakfast at the confluence of the St. Croix River and Mississippi River. We are so happy together and are excited for this next journey to become parents for the first time!
Three years ago, Eric and Megan bought a 4 bedroom new built house in a suburb of Minneapolis. We live in a good school district and a town that has beautiful parks and recreation facilities. Our neighborhood has flowerbeds, beautiful trees, and well-maintained lawns with children constantly playing on the street. There are lots of kids and the neighborhood is multi-generational, which is important to us. We love being able to walk to the park! We are just a short drive to the center of town with lots of shops, entertainment, and restaurants. We can't wait to have custom artwork from little ones hanging on our fridge. We have some baby items, and will be buying more. Your baby will want for nothing if you choose us. Once he or she is home with us, our family and friends will have a huge shower for us.
Growing up, Eric always cooked with his mom, and enjoys being introduced to new recipes that he would not normally pick up. He is very helpful around the house. Eric takes time to exercise whether it is going for a run outside or going to the gym. Eric looks forward to spending time with our new baby on future runs and exploring trails in the Twin Cities. We love spending time with our nephews and nieces as well as our doggies. He will no doubt be a wonderful father!
Eric is a hard worker, and enjoys his career as an Engineer. He has formed strong friendships at work, and is well respected by his employers as well as coworkers. He has a very flexible work schedule, and his work is based from home. He has incredible job stability and is a great provider for our family.
Megan loves family and friends, and enjoys spending time with them. Megan comes from a large extended family that is very close, and family is very important to both of use. Megan's parents are loving life and enjoying retirement! No doubt that this baby will have lots of love and attention from grandpas, grandmas, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Megan loves to lap swim, and used to swim competitively in high school. When not swimming laps at the local outdoor aquatic center, she enjoys sewing and watching movies. Megan consistently goes out of her way to connect with others as a counselor. She has a wonderful ability to encourage, support, and relate with almost anyone.
