We are blessed to be a part of large extended family, both in the USA and Italy. We fell in love with each other’s families within months of our first date. Both sides immediately accepted our relationship, a blessing that we have never taken for granted.
We love to travel to visit our relatives, or they travel to visit us multiple times during the year. Also, we make time to spend major holidays together, be it Christmas in Italy and Easter in Virginia (alternating holiday destinations each year). Some years, we take winter vacations skiing in the Alps or exploring the museums in DC. There are already a bunch of anxious aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents eagerly awaiting the arrival of our son or daughter.
