About Emily: Emily describes herself as hard-working, loyal and dependable with a little (or a lot) of OCD sprinkled in. She loves deeply and always looks for the best in people.

They also have a niece and two nephews who live three houses down and keep them on their toes. These days Emily just enjoys being Aunt E.
