I heard it said and believe it’s true, of all the love stories out there, ours is my favorite. Introduced many moons ago by my mom of all people, I was determined not to like Kevin. At the time I was in the beginning stages of a divorce, pursuing my Bachelors, had two daughters and simply put, did not want to be bothered. Boy am I glad he won that battle, and trust me, it was a battle. Since then, our life together has been nothing short of a beautiful surprise.
Simply put, Kevin is my best friend. I could not ask for a better husband or father, and every day I marvel at the life we’re building together. Unbelievable. By day Kevin appraises high value homes, oftentimes bringing their design concepts home and figuring out how we can incorporate them in our house, on our budget. In past lives he was an insurance adjuster, welder and contractor; an all around jack of all trades. I love that he knows a little about almost everything. An avid sports fan, at night after he’s ripped out a few walls he can be found watching almost any sport known to man, though I believe tennis, football and basketball are his favorites.
Ana is the oldest of our children. This might explain her quick wit and ambition, but I tend to believe she gets that from her momma! On a mission to take over the world, Ana is a freshman in college in upstate New York. When she’s home, she enjoys laughing with and at her mum and my numerous projects.
Chrissy is my big baby. The youngest for almost fifteen years, she’s still adjusting to her new midkid status. Generous to a fault, Chrissy has a heart of gold. Although she is home, opting to work , as parentals we aren’t really cool so she’s usually out hanging with her friends.
Then there’s KJ, my favorite boy! At four years old, he is everything I imagined having a son would be and more. He has us wrapped around his pinkie finger and we’re all too happy to be there. KJ loves construction vehicles and superheroes. On a nice day he can be found in the backyard playing in the patch of dirt I loaned him to keep my garden safe.
Lastly, there’s Ali, the other half of the Dynamic Duo. Ali is a Standard Schnauzer and can almost always be found at the boy’s side.
