We live in a small community in Missouri. Our home sits on 10 acres where we can often be found enjoying the outdoors. Though we cherish the peace and quiet of where we live we are minutes away from a large city with many accommodations that we frequently enjoy. We look forward to sharing fun outings to the zoo, pools, hands-on interactive museum and more with this child. We also love to visit Missouri's two largest cities, St. Louis and Kansas City (which are a few hours drive away), for fun adventures!
We share our three bedroom home with our sweet dog Tucker. Our favorite room in the house is the kitchen. It seems to be where we often gather. Whether it be for a cup of coffee, to prepare a meal or to share about our day with each other. We cannot wait to share our home and lives with a child.
We are both Realtors for a brokerage company based in a close community with an award winning school district. Our work family is very family oriented and is privileged to participate in many community events. From the annual summer barbecue contests and firework display to annual Christmas events that include a parade, lighting of the trails, outdoor showing of the movie Elf and breakfast with Santa, just to name a few! The community is dedicated to celebrating its residents and families and we are blessed to get to be a part of it.
We are blessed to live near our families allowing us to frequently share in each other’s lives. Family is incredibly important to us. To have each other is such a blessing, but to also get the wonderful families we acquired through our marriage is beyond amazing.
Michael's family loves to get together for family dinners and board games. We always gather for birthdays and special events. Michael's mom is incredibly talented and makes birthday cakes for all of her grandchildren. She always asks what kind of cake they would like and never disappoints. It is such a treat to get to see and EAT her creations! Regardless of why we are gathering, our nieces and nephews love when Uncle Michael is around to swing them in the air, jump on the trampoline, wrestle in the floor or partake in any shenanigans they can join in together. It always includes lots of laughter!
Coretta's dad and Michael share their passion for farming and cattle and frequent many related events together. This allows Coretta and her mom to have a girls day enjoying a tea house and searching for treasures at an antique store. We all share our love for the St. Louis Cardinals and try to catch a game together each year. Another favorite is when our niece comes to stay with us for a couple days. We have as many tea parties, play-doh challenges, movie dates and fun outings as possible!
