Michelle & Julia — “Social”
Michelle was born and raised in Long Island, New York and shortly after high school went into Property Insurance. She met her husband a few years ago through a blind date. The story is actually sweet! Her mother worked with a handsome fellow and showed him a picture of her daughter she had on her desk. She asked him if he would be interested in taking her on a date and of course he was since Michelle is pretty. Michelle went on the blind date, mostly because her mother set it up, and they hit it off. Shortly after she and Brian began dating, Michelle’s mother passed away. She never knew that her daughter and Brian fell in love and got married. They have been married now for almost 3 years and silently thank Michelle’s mom everyday. Michelle and her husband visited his family frequently down here in the Carolinas and they grew fond of the people, weather, and casual atmosphere. This laid back lifestyle fit their personalities, so they moved to the Charlotte area. Michelle transferred to the South Park area to continue her work in Property Insurance. Recently, she resigned because she wanted to have a family and be able to be with her children. For fun, she and Brian have a boat and enjoy hanging out on Lake Norman with their friends. One of their other favorite things to do is go to Jimmy Buffet concerts. Michelle’s hobbies consist of doing yoga and playing board games. “Yes, I am a geek!” she mentioned with a smile on her face.
Julia will be 20 months old on September 5 and loves climbing and socializing. Her confident, strong personality is a mirror image of Michelle. She and mommy do the adorable “Social” as they hold up their glasses and clink them together. Julia is a water baby as well and loves their boat. Among other interests, she likes dogs, especially her yellow lab Abby. Julia also enjoys eating, yet gravitates towards the healthy side and will pick up fruit instead of cookies. Recently she has gotten into Sesame Street, of course loving the famous Elmo the most. This little girl is like a mini wheat, so sweet and innocent on one side and full of curiosity on the other.
The hardest thing about being a Tot Mom is never wanting your baby to get hurt. The best thing is ” The way she loves me. It is so rewarding.”
