About My Family
So this page is all about what’s most important to me, my wonderful family! I don’t know what I’d do or who I’d be without them. They are my heart and soul. So let’s get down to it shall we? There is my amazing husband Jonathan, my lovely daughter Meaghan and charming son-in-law Brian, and my son James—who hates when I say it, but will always be my baby boy. There’s also my amazing Labrador Zoe and loveable American Bobtail cat Max, which you can read all about on the About My Pets page. Although we’re not all in the same house anymore, my family is always in my heart and is with me everywhere I go. So how about I tell you a little more about everyone?
I met Jonathan at college during my sophomore year; we were in a creative writing class together. I couldn’t resist his charm, he was such a gentleman. He was a junior at the time, and although we had just met it felt like we had known each other for years. We’ve been inseparable since, he truly is my best friend in the whole world. I’m as happy as can be waking up next to him every day, there’s no one else I’d rather be with. Jonathan is a college professor now, and truly enjoys his work with the students. It is great that we can share and understand in that passion. Our children are all grown up now and don’t need our help quite as much as they used to, so it’s always nice to still feel needed, to be able to teach is truly a blessing we appreciate very much. When off from work on the weekends Jonathan often enjoys going golfing when weather permits, and to keep active in the winter he enjoys cross-country skiing. Down-time during the week is usually spent relaxing with me and the pets around the house, or occasionally going out for a little fun. Oh, and of course, doing the dishes—after all, I made the dinner so it’s only fair he cleans up afterward right? I have to hand it to him though; he always does it with a smile.
Meaghan is our eldest. She’s all grown up now, with her own husband, Brian. Theirs is the sweetest story; they were high school sweethearts, meant to be. Their wedding was absolutely beautiful, one of the few occasions you’d ever see Jonathan cry. I absolutely love the holidays when they come to visit, not that I don’t talk to her a lot anyways; we speak on the phone practically every day. But there’s nothing like having your ducklings under the same roof to make you feel all is well. When she’s home we always love to cook and bake together for the boys, and love to go hiking or enjoy the outdoors together. Brian is such a pleasure to have around too, he is always saying something that you can’t help but laugh or smile about, he’s so charismatic. I suppose that’s why he’s so good at his job, being a salesman is perfect for him. And Meaghan, she took after her parents and is a grade school teacher. She loves her kids, she’ll send us pictures of her and the class and they all always look so happy. I know someday she’ll be a terrific mother, and I look forward to that day—so I’ll finally have a grandson or daughter!
Then of course there is James. Jonathan and I are so proud of him. Right now he’s going for his PhD; he’s wanted to be a doctor as long as he could remember. Soon he will be. He’s always been such a hard worker, and he just has the kindest soul you’ll ever meet. Sometimes I do worry though, because he can be a little naive. But I suppose most of that is just me being a worried mother. When he is on vacation or has free time on the weekends James often enjoys going snowboarding in the winter, or playing Frisbee when the weather is nicer. He is so outgoing and always enjoys being around others too; making friends comes second nature to him. I know it’s only a matter of time before he meets that special someone.
So that’s my family in a nutshell, I did my best to keep it brief. I hope you enjoyed it!
