We are very fortunate to live in the beautiful city of Santa Clara in the heart of Silicon Valley. The city is a unique mix of people from all around the world, all working on the latest technical innovations. We believe this would be the perfect environment to raise our child exposing them to different cultures in a place where anything is possible. We are also very fortunate to be in a great school district.
Santa Clara is surrounded by wonderful mountains, beaches, and reserves. We both look forward to sharing our love of nature and a healthy outdoor lifestyle with our child.
While our two-bed duplex may be modest, it is a place of great love, warmth, and fun, whether that be the noise of our dogs playing together in the garden, the smell of Veronica’s freshly baked Irish soda bread, or Kevin making a mess in the kitchen trying out his latest recipe.
Our home is located is a quiet residential area very close to Central Park in Santa Clara. Central Park has lovely playgrounds, walkways, and a lake with ducks and geese. We are also lucky to be surrounded by wonderful neighbors and friends.
Here in Santa Clara we have a wonderful group of new friends who have moved here both from Ireland and around the world. They have been fantastic about giving us advice on integrating into our new life, showing us the best that the Valley has to offer, and even organizing a surprise birthday party for Veronica in September.
Many have been in the Bay Area for several years and are raising their families here, so we feel we will have great support despite being far away from our own immediate families. We are lucky that, thanks to advances in technology, we can stay in contact with family and friends in Ireland, and we make regular video calls home.
