“I am beyond excited to announce that Mrs. Notaro and I are expecting TWINS in the coming months!!!!!
When Stephanie and I got together, after so much excessive travel and work, we imagined a life where we could eventually raise a family amongst our own family one day. Now it blows our minds that our dream has been realized over the past nearly 3 years in the making. I have really come to believe SO MUCH in the saying that “it takes a village” and we have taken that to heart by creating our own little village tucked away in the hills of Los Angeles. Stephanie and I have built a beautiful little compound that her entire wonderful family actually occupies with us. Tea with her sister, dinners with her mother, music with her brother– its all beyond any fantasy I had ever imagined for myself. Borrowing a stick of butter from one another’s fridge, carpooling to the store and pet sitting for whomever may be traveling that particular week. With the loved ones and wildlife that tread across our yard daily, we truly can not wait to share this world with Itsy and Bitsy upon their eagerly anticipated arrival into our lives. With every twist and turn over the past couple of years, I can honestly say that I couldn’t be a happier and better person for it all. I no doubt love my career and feel thankful for all of the opportunities I have been offered, but nothing makes my heart explode with more joy and excitement or has utmost priority like what we have at home. I feel so unbelievably grateful for my friends and my family as well as my new family that surrounds us here at “Maison D’Oiseaux.”
Thank you to those near and far who have extended endless support of my non-traditional personal and non-traditional professional lives. As they say- you do your thing, I’ll do mine. When people ask what exciting new project I have on the horizon, my response has been and will continue to be to just maintain all the good that I have, because I truly have it all (+ 2).” (via Facebook)
