For us, family is everything. It was just a normal part of life to see our aunts and uncles on a weekly basis. We also spent lots of time with our cousins, who are more like bonus brothers and sisters. We were both raised with lots of love and laughter and we look forward to passing these relationships on to a child.
We both have amazing parents and we know when given the opportunity, they will be even more amazing grandparents. The best part about our family is how much we all enjoy spending time together. Holidays feel like a family reunion, when all the extended family that doesn’t live nearby can come together. Everyone can get together and enjoy a big Thanksgiving dinner or at Christmas, playing games, making cookies and opening gifts together. Everyone is just so loving, we cannot wait to welcome a child into the family to add to the love.
Robyn’s family lives just down the road, which makes it super convenient when we need help with a project or need an ingredient for a recipe. Justin’s family is more spread out physically, but just as close emotionally. We look forward to taking trips to visit them and showing the child what a big loving family they are a part of.
