We live in a quaint neighborhood in San Jose, CA called Willow Glen. We are walking distance to top rated schools, parks, and local restaurants. We love our home and our neighbors. We live in a close knit community with great neighbors. We all know each other and look out for each other. The nearby schools provide ample space for Rusty, our beloved retriever, to run around.
Our home has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Our office/music room is one of our favorite places to be. This is where Jonathan plays guitar and records his own music, Rusty takes naps, and Crystal practices her yoga. It’s a small room, but big enough to fit all of our hobbies. We have a great backyard and some projects that we are currently working on are: a garden, ample running area to play, and a lounging area to read books.
Crystal is very close to her sister, Tiffany and her family. They live about a mile away. Niece, Alexis (9), and nephew, Kai (6) come over often for sleep-overs or just to visit. Crystal’s parents also still live in the home she grew up in which is about 1.5 miles away. It’s nice that “grandma” and “grandpa” are nearby.
Jonathan’s parents are retired and live in San Rafael, just north of San Francisco (about 1.5 hour drive). We are so fortunate to be able to visit with them once a month in between their volunteer commitments and world travels. Jonathan’s brother, Ryan and his family just moved to Minnesota! We are really looking forward to having lake time in the summers with our niece Olivia (almost 2 yrs).
