|More About Our Family
|Where we grew up:|
Michael grew up in an urban neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan. He stays loyal to his Michigan sports teams (even the Lions). Andrea grew up in a rural town in northeast Iowa where there was never a shortage of corn fields and bonfires.
We were both confirmed into the Catholic Church together three years into our marriage and we're beyond blessed to have an amazing parish, group of friends, and endless opportunities to be active in the Church. You can often find us at monthly Church gatherings with our friends and their children. Our local Church has an amazing school where we look forward to sending our child.
|What we look forward to sharing with your child:|
We have a love for the outdoors and adventure whether that be hiking or playing in one of Colorado’s most beautiful parks which is just three blocks from our house. We also appreciate the simple life and are excited to read with our children, teach them to ride a bike, get dirty, and be kind to others.
