1. Why don't you start by introducing yourself to our readers (Name, Kids (How Many / Names), Occupation, Location?)
Hello! My name is Kevin Richardson and I'm blessed to be the husband of Jen and the father to Rowan as well as another baby girl who should be arriving any day now. Since Jen and I have been married (over 6 years) we've moved around quite a bit, but we currently call the Capital Region of New York home.
I co-own a small web design & development company called Iron to Iron where I also serve as the principal designer. We've been in business for a little over 2 years but I've been designing professionally since 2002.
Hmm… I guess I would have to say the week of Thanksgiving considering that's when my wife finds it appropriate to start playing Christmas music through all hours of the day.
I'm sure there were years in the past that I was let down by not getting something I was hoping for but I can't think of anything off the top of my head. My parents did a good job hooking me up through the years. I'm very grateful for them!
What's a holiday tree? "Christmas" all the way! Real, and hand-cut, of course. Nothing beats the smell of fresh pine in your living room.
With our family scattered all over the place we tend to celebrate Christmas in a new place every year which tends to get in the way of any sort of tradition. However, now that my daughter Rowan is getting a bit older I imagine we'll probably start a few traditions for her. We'll see.
