Brad and I met while working a summer job in our hometown in 2005. We built an incredibly strong relationship over the years while dating. We had a long distance relationship for about 5 years while I finished
college and earned my Master's degree. During that time, we grew to know and love each other for who we truly are, flaws and all. Then in 2013, we finally tied the knot and have been happily married for the past 6 years and counting. Over the last 6 years, our relationship has become even stronger and more pure through the hardships of infertility, the joys of making memories, and our general day to day life together. We left the honeymoon stage behind us and embraced what marriage truly is--loving, respecting, appreciating and supporting your partner whole-heartedly through the roller coaster that is life.
We have lived in our home for almost 5 years. There are 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, an office, dining room, living room, kitchen, and finished basement.
Our house is in a quiet, safe, and friendly neighborhood with many families with children of various ages. Our home has a large backyard to play in. Within walking distance there are great public schools which our children will attend; as well as, a playground and splash pad. There is also a bike trail kiddy corner from our home.
Brad and I love our home and work to make it a safe and happy environment for our family. We have an empty bedroom that we cannot wait to decorate as a nursery and it already has a crib waiting to be slept in!
I love being active and outside when I can. Reading, gardening, running, and playing outside with Owen are all activities that I enjoy and just can't seem to get enough of. I believe I have a good sense of humor and strong morals that make me a great husband and father. I give my family unconditional love, respect, and will always do my best to be the father my children deserve.

Brad is a true partner, amazing father and my rock. He is caring, genuine and generous. Whether he is mowing the lawn, playing with Owen or doing random tasks around the house; Brad loves being active. His smile will brighten anyone's mood and he has an incredible sense of humor. A few things that made me fall in love with Brad were his spontaneity, how loving he was towards others, and how safe he makes me feel.
My husband is a kid at heart. He is goofy, imaginative and loves Transformers. I love that he has a strong balance of being care-free and being serious. He can always make me laugh but knows when to put his adult hat on.
Brad teaches high school mathematics; everyone's favorite subject, right!? He loves working with children of all ages and has been since he was a teenager teaching kids swim lessons. His level of patience and ability to positively influence others astonishes me.
Brad is a hard worker; he is respected by his students and co-workers. Brad is athletic and loves coaching high school soccer. His quick wit and charm make those around him feel warm and welcome.
Our family is Brad's top priority and he will do anything needed to support us. He is an incredible father because of how he loves Owen and his ability to guide and support him.
I am driven, self-motivated, and supportive. I am quiet, love to laugh, and have a big heart. I adore being a mother and being with my son and husband. I like to think of myself as a fun, adventurous and level-headed person. I am a life-long learner. Being outdoors, reading, running and painting are some of my passions.

Theresa is an amazing woman. She is patient, empathetic, full of love, and energetic. All these traits make her an amazing mother and high school counselor. Her ability to make teenagers (even the moody ones) comfortable is incredible.
She radiates happiness when she is playing with our son Owen. She isn't afraid to get dirty, play in the rain/mud, or be silly with him. Theresa loves to be active by working out or going for walks; but, also cherishes the relaxing days that include snuggling with her family or sitting by a fire while drinking hot chocolate.
I truly am blessed to have Theresa as my wife and a mother to our son. She supports her family 100% and is a beacon of love, warmth, and happiness in our family. Words aren't enough to describe the type of person she is and the type of mother she has become. To put it simply, she rocks!
