We bought our house beautiful home three years ago. We live in a cape style house, with three bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms, an open concept kitchen, dining room and living room. It is a cozy house with brightly colored walls and pictures Allison has taken of beautiful scenery. We have a basement that we would like to do over at one point, but for now its the perfect place for a child to ride a bike on, or draw with chalk. Our favorite room is our sunroom. It has windows on all sides, and looks out onto our gardens and backyard. Last year Brian built an amazing patio for all of our summer entertaining.
The street that our house is on, is made up of two small dead end roads where there is a total of 9 houses. There is lots of trees and trails located in our neighborhood. Our neighbors are all extremely friendly, and we even have several potluck meals throughout the year where everyone joins in. We have the perfect street where a child can learn to ride a bike, play with our dog, or even roller skate on.
We cannot wait to share our neighborhood and house with our new child.
Allison grew up with her mother, father, and younger brother, although, it was never just the four of them. Allison comes from a huge Italian family made up of plenty of aunts, uncles and cousins. Family gatherings were always a big event. These gatherings always revolved around good food and plenty of laughter! While Allison’s family lives two hours away, we make it a point to see them at least once a month. Allison’s family loves the ocean, and when she was 12 they purchased a summer home on the ocean in Maine. To this day we still all go down and spend most of our summer in this great tiny little cottage on the ocean.
Brian grew up with his mother and his sister, as well as his father and his step-mother. Brian comes from a much smaller family with only two aunts, an uncle and one cousin. Although his family lacks size in comparison to Allison’s you would never know it. To this day his mother and sister are not just family but one of his closest friends. Brian’s sister, aunt, uncle and cousin live in North Carolina. His sister has a son named Liam who loves his uncle Bubba (His sister’s nickname for Brian) Brian’s family also loves the ocean, as they grew up in a house on the water.
Both of our families could not be more excited to help us welcome a new child into the family!
