3: Our Story... | We have known each other for 13 years. | We met in Freshman year of high-school and quickly realized were two peas in a pod! We both loved animals, music and movies, and no one could make us laugh harder than each other.We started spending time together after school and grew closer and closer over the years. | When faced with tough times, we were right there to get each other through anything. But most importantly of all, we had fun together, no matter what were doing. We could not imagine going through life without the other by our sides, and we realized that a deep love had developed between us that went beyond friendship. We got married on October 3, 2009, and the rest is history!
4: We are fun loving and outgoing people. We love to try new things together, and are always up for an adventure!
5: As a Couple... | We are a close and loving couple. We feel the strengths in our relationship include prioritizing our lives to spend evenings together, sitting and talking about issues that come up, and the fact we were friends first. We are able to balance each other out well and learn from each other also.
6: We are as excited and prepared as we can be for parenthood. We have grown as friends, as a married couple, and now we want to grow as parents together. We anticipate learning a lot from our child and from the new experience of becoming parents. | Becoming Parents
7: Travel | Together, we love to... | We both love to see the world and all that it has to offer. We have been fortunate enough to be able to take several vacations to places such as Ireland, Germany, Australia, Italy, Mexico, Panama, the Caribbean and Disney World. We plan to take many more vacations in the future and look forward to showing our child all of the amazing and wonderful things we have been able to experience together.
8: Spend time with our friends...
9: And families! | We were both raised in tight knit families and speak with our parents daily. We have even taken several trips together as a couple with both sets of parents. | Our lives remain very family oriented. Tim works with his aunt every day in the ice cream shop that they own together. Maureen is the eldest of 18 cousins and keeps in touch with all of them on a regular basis.
10: We were so honored to be named God-Parents! | We spend as much time with our good friends' kiddos as possible, and are even known as "Uncle Tim" and "Auntie Marnie."
11: Maureen is putting her Master of Business Administration degree to good use in her current position as an accounting generalist. | Tim has been the proud owner of his own ice cream and coffee shop since 2008! | At Work...
12: Welcome to Our Home! A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words... | We feel very safe in our neighborhood: We even have a police officer that lives a couple of houses down from us!

14: Tim is the kindest, most considerate person I know. I have seen him drop everything to take care of a sick friend and patiently listen when others are having problems, Kids are drawn to Tim in a way I have never seen. He makes them smile and laugh while at the same time never misses an opportunity to teach them about something He has been talking about being a father since before we were even married, and there is no doubt in mind that he will be an extraordinary parent. | Timothy
15: Maureen | Maureen is the most loving and thoughtful person that I have ever known. She will go out of her way to make sure that everyone around her is having a good time even if that means that her enjoyment falls through the floor. She is always the first to arrive and the last to leave because she believes in making sure everyone around her is comfortable and happy. I am lucky I get to spend my life with her, and I know that any child lucky enough to call Maureen "Mom" will feel the same!
