Our Friends & Family
Valerie is very close to her sister and her family. She was an aunt at the age of eight and she grew up spending a lot of time at her sister’s home, watching her niece and nephews. Because of this they still feel very close to her and she feels the same about them. She loves her family’s traditions and celebrates them whenever we can. A birthday isn’t complete in our family until you have had a specially prepared meal, “happy birthday” sung to you and candles are blown out on a cake. Holidays are always shared with both our friends and family, because we always take time to celebrate with those we love.
Paul’s mom lives in New York City, and we often visit her and go to shows with her and try new restaurants. She is very excited about being a grandmother since Paul is an only child. Paul’s godmother was the officiant at our wedding and we are both really close to her and her family. Like us, she is a huge science fiction geek, and loves Star Trek in particular. Two of his oldest and best friends stood with him at the wedding. He loves having his friends over to play board games and cards, and just hanging out and eating pizza. We also all get together to go to the movies, especially the Marvel movies, and support his friends in their creative passions.
