We own a beautiful home in a family-filled neighborhood on the southwest side of Chicago. Our home is open and bright and each room has its own personality. We have a small garden and backyard where we can grill and play bags in the summer. Our community has great schools and recreational areas. The pool and ice skating rink are only a few blocks away. Our neighbors take the holidays very seriously. There is a spectacular fireworks show on the Fourth of July, tons of trick or treater's on Halloween and summers are filled with block parties. We love to walk around looking at all the fantastic lights and decorations during Christmas. It's almost a winter wonderland.
Chicago is a diverse and magical city filled with museums, beaches, sporting venues and we get to call it home. With a quick car or train ride we can catch a Cub's game or go see some of Patrick's work at the aquarium. We enjoy movies in the park and all the free concerts. When choosing a place to start a family it was important that we had the best of both worlds.
Our friends and family have been unwavering in their support for us. There are so many great things we could tell you about them, but there isn't enough paper in the world. They are all unique and beautiful. They come from different backgrounds and diverse families. They are students, teachers, business men and women, animal people, builders, lovers of life and so much more. They each have amazing talents and they can't wait to share them with a new member of the family.
We are very close to our families. Both the ones we were born into and the ones we weren't. It never matters why we get together, just that we do. We love to cook for them, celebrate life with them or just sit around a fire and talk and laugh with them. We couldn't have asked for better friends and family. They have taught us what unconditional love, true friendship and support really are. We see some of them a few times a year and others almost every day. They have held our hearts and hands in hard times, made every celebration special and make each day a little better.
