Funny enough, we met through our younger brothers. They were on the same baseball team years ago and that’s how our families met. After about 2 years of being family friends we started dating. We dated for 4 months and were engaged for 9 months. We got married quickly but never looked back- 7 years of marriage and we are still very happy together!
We prioritize time with each other and time with our daughter. We are also intentional with extended family and friends and try to see them often. We do as many activities with our daughter as we can- we love being married and being parents!
Our home is a traditional suburban home in a cul-de-sac. We have a fenced backyard that backs up to a lovely tree line. Our neighbors are friendly and always ready to say “hello” as they go by. We are fortunate to live in a safe and beautiful neighborhood.
I am very loyal and affectionate to my husband and daughter. I love spending time with them one on one and as the 3 of us. As I parent my daughter I try to focus on connection and talking though correction - not shaming and guilting her into changing her behavior. My goal is that, no matter what, she and all our future children will always come to me with anything and everything because they know my arms will always be open to them.
I love being a husband and father. I am a hard worker and enjoy what I do for a living but I love coming home to my family the most. I enjoy playing games with my daughter and having family movie nights when time allows. Keeping my family safe is of utmost importance to me. It brings me joy when my daughter wants to come “help” me work on my car or with a project in the garage- it’s a way we bond.
