Our love story began after a chance meeting while we were country dancing with mutual friends and it quickly blossomed into the most special relationship. We had a relatively short courtship, but to us, it didn’t feel that way, it just felt right. We got engaged within five months and were married even before our first year dating anniversary - that was seven years ago.
We are looking forward to continuing to travel the world with our children to be able to teach and expose them to different cultures!
We have a lot of similarities, but we also have differences in our upbringings that we feel have allowed us to experience many new things together and broaden our interests in each other’s lives, ones that we have chosen to expose our son to as well. We couldn’t be happier that we happened to meet that one fateful night.
Our wedding day was one of the happiest for us for many reasons but one of the most important reasons was that we knew, soon, we wanted to start a family. We value family more than anything in the world. We are a culturally diverse family. It is great for everyone because we are able to learn from each other's backgrounds and heritages. We feel so blessed to have a culturally diverse family because we are able to share our traditions with our son. He is learning Spanish as well as English and we are so grateful for that!
Pinatas were a big part of Michelle's birthday parties growing up and we are continuing that tradition for our son as well as our future child. Also, Michelle loves to salsa dance and hopes to teach our children the love for different kinds of dancing. We are looking forward to continuing to travel the world with our children to be able to teach and expose them to different cultures! We get together quite often with both sides of our families and we feel very fortunate to be able to spend so much time together. Between the two families, we have five nieces and nephews and a lot of our family time is centered around all of the children's activities.
