We’re high school sweethearts. We’re so lucky to have found one another so early in life. Nate proposed to Erin at the Bloomsburg Fair, and we got married in 2006 in Pennsylvania on a beautiful Fall day.
We’ve grown up together, and we love to be together.
We balance each other—Erin’s feisty and Nate’s laid back. Nate’s athletic; Erin’s artistic. Nate’s an introvert; Erin’s an extrovert. We know what the other person is going to say before they say it. We can tell each other whole sentences with a single look.
We travel. We make a yearly trip to Florida to visit Erin’s sister (and Disney princesses). We’ve kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland and had tea in England. We jump in ocean waves and play miniature golf on the boardwalk.
We play. Together we can make just about any occasion fun. And we love to play with our daughter—from jumping in leaf piles to building snowmen to hosting fancy tea parties in our living room with chocolate milk and cookies. We laugh a lot.
We’re happy just being together. We love fall festivals, eating out, playing Scrabble, and snuggling up with a good holiday movie by the fireplace.
We love each other always and forever. We’re soul mates, We love our family and being parents, and we’re so excited about the possibility of growing our family through adoption.
Fun Facts about Erin and Nate
Favorite Places: We love going places! Some of our favorite places include the boardwalk, the tropics, and artist towns along the New England coast. We love traveling, in part, because we love coming home.
Favorite Sports Teams: For Erin, it’s the Boston Red Sox—once you’ve experienced the Green Monster, there’s no turning back. For Nate, it’s the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions (in part because he loves to watch football on Thanksgiving). Really, though, we’re college sports fans—cheering on our alma maters through winning (and losing) seasons.
Favorite Hobbies: Erin loves painting; Nate enjoys running and golf. We like to hike and garden together. Favorite Holidays: Our clear favorite is Thanksgiving. We have a whole Thanksgiving ritual: First Nate runs an annual race, which we all go to, sipping hot cocoa and cheering him on. Then, we stop at his sister’s house to visit with his family before heading to Erin’s parents’ house to make the Thanksgiving feast for her family. It’s a day filled with family, laughter, and coziness—our favorite things.
Favorite Music: We like a whole range of music—From classic Frank Sinatra to Willie Nelson to pop chart hits. We’ll both admit to performing concerts in the car on occasion. We visit the symphony when it comes to town, and we enjoy Broadway performances.
