Like most kids of our time, I grew up playing outside. We lived on a lake, so I was always swimming, boating, fishing and ice skating. It was a great way to spend a childhood! My parents worked quite a bit, so it was usually just me and my brother at home. This taught us how to take care of ourselves from an early age.
When I went away to college, I worked really hard to keep my grades high and to graduate. I was ready to grow up and get out into the real world. I now work as a mortgage loan officer and love my career. When the boys were little I worked a lot. I feel like I wasn’t always there for every milestone. I am excited to now have a job that offers me the flexibility to be home more and enjoy the little moments with our family.
I feel like my life really started when I met Ashley. We fell in love and got married within a short amount of time. She has a big, close family and they welcomed me right in. It took me a while to get used to the loud, crazy, fun love that they all had for one another. Now, I am a part of that amazing love. They love our boys the same way they love me.
