We met in college. We both volunteered for the same non-profit organization. We became friends right away, and 1 year later we began dating. The rest is history! We have now been married over 10 years, have celebrated many accomplishments and milestones together.
Our greatest joy has come from becoming parents. We are looking forward to completing our family through adoption very soon! Our daughter, Emma, is greatly looking forward to becoming a big sister very soon. She is wonderful, caring, joyful child who is quite sweet and kind hearted to other children, especially those that are smaller than her (babies are her favorite!). We are not sure who is more excited to bring another baby into our home, us or her!
We live in a small lake community. We are lucky to have a beach right in our backyard! We live at the end of a dead end street. We have many wonderful neighbors, many of whom have kids. Our neighborhood has a dedicated playground and seasonal activities for families to enjoy. We have 4 large bedrooms, 1 of which is ready to fill with our next child! We love hosting family and friends, especially on those summer weekends. We hope everyone feels at home when they are in ours!
Nick is witty, calm and dedicated. He works hard and plays hard. He loves to be on the move and is the main reason we live on the lake. When Nick isn't being an awesome dad or husband, he enjoys golfing, running, exercising, and spending time with family and friends. My favorite thing about Nick is his dedication and loyalty to those around him!
Nikki is fun, outgoing and caring. She is one of those people who is everyone’s best friend because they instantly feel comfortable around her. Our daughter (and future child) are incredibly lucky to have a mom like Nikki in their life. Nikki makes time for daily exercise, cooking delicious meals, and spending at much time with family and friends when she isn't saving the world as a social worker. My favorite thing about Nikki would be her daily quest to have fun and brighten everyone's day.
