We never knew it but we grew up locally to each other in neighboring communities living strongly parallel lives. From our family backgrounds to our interests in high school, college experiences and career decisions, to become service providers, we were sharing experiences without having met yet. After returning home from college and beginning our careers fate intervened and we met on eHarmony. It was almost a completely missed connection though! We love sharing with people exactly what happened that lead to us being matched and how we ended up together from our respective sides of the computer screen! Thankfully we did end up meeting and once we did it was clear early on it felt like we knew each other already and that we were made for each other!
We live in a two-story Cape style home with four bedrooms and a spacious fenced-in backyard. We are surrounded by a wonderful community & nature. Our favorite spot inside is our living room but our backyard is our sanctuary and we can't wait to play outside as a family on warm summer nights or cozy snow days and everything in between! It is also the best spot for the most beautiful sunrises!
We bought our home in 2016 from the family that built it three short months before our wedding! We were supposed to look at another house that day but the appointment didn't work out. It was a whirlwind of a summer to get the house ready and we moved in just a couple of weeks before our big day! We were so glad to have found our forever home and are very grateful to our parents for easing our nerves and helping us see beyond the wallpaper!
Since that time we have continued to put a lot of love into our home with other projects and renovations to make it our own, and to have room to grow! We still have so many more ideas and projects to come but one thing is certain our house has become a beloved home and the holder of many happy memories that we can not wait to add to!
Jamie is a talented, fun, and loving person that enjoys spending time with her family. She is always excited when she is asked to babysit her nephew or god-daughter/niece and is always happy to read, play, get them ready for bed, or to experience them learning something new because getting to take care of them means she always learns something too. She has a love for animals and a special place in her heart for puppies and dogs of all ages. Jamie's life experiences make her wise beyond her years and whether it's teaching a dog a new trick or behavior to supporting a family member or friend, you can always count on her.
Gerard is an easy going, inquisitive and gentle person with an enthusiasm for life. He has the contagious laugh to match these qualities, loves to learn, and enjoys opportunities to experience new things. From inventing a new shake, hosting unique events at home, or planning a new outing, he always has something to contribute and uses this to create meaningful relationships with his wife, family and friends. Gerard loves hockey, aero science, history and languages, and is eager to share his interests with his nephew and niece as they grow up! Family time is full of those opportunities and our nephew loves to have Uncle Gerard involved in anything he does from playing trucks to brushing his teeth!
