Dan has lived in San Diego all of his adult life and grew up in Northern California. Margaret actually grew up in Nigeria and moved to Los Angeles when she was 18 years old. Mutual friends introduced us to each other. Nine months later, we tied the knot and appreciate each other more year after year!
Both of us have experience in taking care of children. Dan spent four years working in a residential facility for abused children. He has also volunteered for the children's ministry at a church, taken care of children at a summer day camp and baby-sat.
Margaret lived with a family for years. In exchange for room and board, she would help care for the family's four children, especially the youngest, who had significant health challenges in his first year of life. She has also volunteered at church to do children's ministry and nannied throughout college. She loved caring for children so much that she even took parenting classes. We both love kids!
When we have the opportunity, we do like to travel. Our last big trip was to Canada, which was such a wonderful experience. To us, what made the trip great was being around the people, as is the same with anywhere we go. It brings great memories when trying to communicate with each other and learning their ways. We attend church, enjoy watching movies at home, go on hikes, exercise and entertain guests. Especially with hospitality, we make a great team, as Margaret loves to socialize and entertain the guests in conversation, while Dan is in the kitchen preparing the dishes. Dan enjoys cooking. He aspires to cook many types of food and always enjoys branching out. He has a lot of fun making fusion dishes, such as a Mediterranean pizza or a chicken enchilada omelet.
