" Top five reasons Cristina and Dan are the best of the best: 1. They are the life of the party. Every conversation is made more fun with Cristina’s contagious laugh and Dan’s bottomless supply of hilarious stories. You can’t NOT smile around them. 2. Cristina dreams big. She knows what she is capable of and gives it everything she has, whether it’s working out, being an entrepreneur, crocheting, reading books and learning new things, or excelling at her job. She doesn’t do anything halfway. Cristina pours her heart and soul into everything she does. 3. Dan works hard and plays hard. When Dan was in college, he and Cristina spent many Friday and Saturday date-nights in the library studying. He’s not afraid of hard work, as evidenced by the time and energy he has spent finishing their basement. But, he definitely knows when to put his work down and have fun! He is always down to go-go-go, whether it’s playing board games, or snowmobiling in -20 degree weather, or tearing up the lake on a slalom waterski. 4. Cristina has a way with kids that I can only dream of duplicating. My kids ONLY EVER SLEEP in their crib/bed, in the dark, by themselves. But somehow Cristina is famous for putting my kids to sleep anywhere and anyhow. She’s held my 3-year-old while she slept through dinner at a sushi restaurant, and put my active baby to sleep in a hammock under the bright sun. She makes kids feel comfortable and safe, and it shows. 5. Cristina and Dan are so anxious and excited to build their family. Their home is a happy, loving, uplifting, and accepting place. They are absolutely ready to be the very best parents. "
