Our Leisure Time
Cheering on the Cubs!

During the spring and summer we like to spend as much time as possible outside. We have a vegetable garden and love to make our own homemade salsa with the ingredients fresh from the garden. We often can our salsa so we can give it away for others to enjoy. We enjoy having friends and family over for cookouts and Michael loves to grill out on the back patio. Where we live we get to enjoy all four seasons and we love taking advantage of what each season has to offer. During the fall months we like to make s’mores around a fire pit in the backyard. We also like going to a local pumpkin patch and picking out pumpkins to carve. In the winter time we always go to a local tree farm and pick out a real Christmas tree to decorate. Sometimes we enjoy just spending a relaxing evening at home watching a movie together with a big bowl of popcorn.

In our down time, Michael enjoys taking in professional baseball and football sporting events in Chicago. Michela likes to refurbish old furniture or enjoy a cup of tea while reading a good book. On the weekends we love taking trips to new places. We recently were able to take our nephew on his first trip to the zoo, which was so much fun. We can't wait to enjoy these times with our child, as each weekend brings an opportunity to explore new things.

How We Met
Enjoying the California Sunshine

We met in college when we both attended a meeting on campus. During the meeting we saw each other and soon afterwards we approached mutual friends who later formally introduced us. We instantly became friends and began dating. While dating we attended sporting events, traveled, and hosted a weekly game night with friends.

Two years later we became engaged on an evening horse-drawn sleigh ride through one of our favorite Colorado ski towns. We believe everyone is placed in someone's life for a reason and we feel blessed to have one another to spend our lives with. Michael is a very loyal person who cares deeply about all the people in his life. He has such an energy for life and always brings a smile to everyone he is around. Michela is a determined person who brings out the best in those around her. She is selfless and has a generous heart for helping others.

We feel that marriage and adoption are both so special. When we said our vows we made a commitment to make each other our whole lives. In the same way as adoption we are not biologically connected, however the bond that we share is more important to us than anything else. We know that the moment we meet our child we will feel that same connection and love.

Family Traditions

We have a close-knit family who always enjoys getting together for birthdays. On birthdays we like to make a large buffet style meal, with lots of desserts. We then gather around the birthday boy/girl and watch them open their cards and presents. After that we usually sing happy birthday as a group and watch as they attempt to blow out the "trick" candles that never seem to blow out. Soon after we are usually playing frisbee or bags outside. We love playing board games inside during the colder months. It is great to have everyone there as a support group when things are going well or in times when we need a hand.
