US

WE ARE VERY SIMILAR IN MANY WAYS. We both enjoy spending time outdoors and exploring new places, we enjoy home projects and keeping busy. We differ in that Michael is a big planner, a bit more reserved and shows his love through acts of service, to him actions speak louder than words. Sara is a bit more spontaneous and enjoys change (always moving the furniture around). She truly values quality time, giving her full attention to show love. The differences between us provides our marriage a balance which keeps life happy.

HOW WE MET

I (Sara) flirted with this handsome guy (Michael) at a Hockey Game. We exchanged numbers and a few days later we went on our first date. We quickly learned how much we had in common, raised similarly, shared similar beliefs and genuinely enjoyed each other’s company. It wasn’t long before we knew we found someone special. We had a beautiful wedding, purchased our dream home and spent the last 5 years making it our favorite place to be. We have a marriage built with love and a friendship filled with laughter and happiness. We are grateful and appreciative of the life we have made together and we are excited for the future of our family.

We feel that the closeness we have and the balance of our personalities will aid us in being a team WHEN IT COMES TO PARENTING. It is hard to say who we will be as parents as it will be a new role for us. But we know that when it comes to relationships, as long as we lead with love, faith and trust, the rest will fall into place.

About

SARA

Sara is easy-going, kind and compassionate. I fell in love with Sara for so many reasons but one of them being the way she cares about everyone and everything in her life. She never takes herself too seriously, she is always dancing in the kitchen when she thinks no-one is watching, she loves to decorate for the holidays and has a major sweet tooth. Growing up, Sara was a tomboy and very adventurous, climbing fences and getting dirty. She had a wild imagination and still does. She is a Godmother, “bestie” and aunt to her friends’ little ones, she loves to play games with them, create activities, have fun conversations, and never passes on a facetime. I know Sara will be a fun and happy mom who will love our child with all her heart. She will help them navigate challenges, create healthy habits and live a life they are proud of.

The school district is award winning and is ranked in the top 10 best and safest districts in the state. We love where we live, we are close to the city, beaches, hiking, skiing, and most importantly our family.

Our Family

AND FRIENDS

Family is so important to us, we are very lucky and blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives.

We are very close to our immediate family. Together we celebrate every birthday, holiday and often get together for family dinners. We share many laughs, lots of stories and the occasional never ending game of Uno. The family group chats are going off constantly with pictures and funny messages. We also have a close group of friends from Michael’s fire department that we consider family. We are fortunate enough to see them nearly every weekend. Most of our friends have small kids who lovingly call us Aunt and Uncle.

Our family and friends have been so supportive of our journey to parenthood. They are excited for us to welcome our future child and experience all the wonderful gifts that a baby brings.

OUR

Faith

Sara grew up in a Catholic household, she was an altar server for many years in grade school and is a member of the rosary society at our parish. She attends Sunday mass and leans into her faith often. Michael has also received sacraments of the Catholic church. He attends mass with Sara on holidays, for remembrance and special occasions. We plan to raise our child in the church and plan to teach them morals, ethics and values rooted in our Christian faith.

We hope we did a good job of telling you who we are as individuals, as a couple and future parents.
