We live in a cozy home in a family-oriented neighborhood in San Francisco. Our neighborhood is full of young children and families, with local parks, great schools and a vibrant main street. As a neighborhood, we get together for BBQs, multi-family garage sales and Halloween.
We spend a lot of time in our backyard gardening and playing with our dogs. It’s the perfect place for our child to play ball with Robbie or plant flowers with Erin.
When we’re together inside our home, we love to cook. Robbie’s “go to” meal to make is a healthy stir fry. He also loves to BBQ. Erin likes to cook Italian food - mostly recipes passed on from her Grandmother, Aunt and Mother. She also loves salads, so she’s always chopping up vegetables. From April through October, the TV is tuned to baseball (go Giants!). And when the Giants aren’t playing, the house is usually filled with music.
Our home away from home is a beautiful cabin in Lake Tahoe that’s less than a mile from the lake. Every 4th of July week, we gather with Erin’s family to have fun on the beach, swim and go boating. In the evenings, we take turns making dinner and play board games and cards.
You’ll also find us at the cabin between Christmas and New Year’s Day. If there’s snow, we can’t wait to get out and explore! On New Year’s Eve, we make homemade pasta and Erin’s grandmother’s delicious spaghetti sauce. We dream of the day when we can share this magical place and these special occasions with our child.
We have two dogs: Rosie and Buddy. Rosie is the cutest little mutt you’ve ever seen! She has light brown hair with a little pink nose and green eyes. She’s cuddly, curious, and is always up for a game of “tug of war.”
Buddy is a playful 6-pound Yorkie. He looks like a Teddy Bear, so we call him Buddy-bear. Both dogs are gentle and very good with kids. We’re looking forward to watching our child form a special bond with these energetic and sweet pups.
