Love is in the (Pinecrest) Air

For a couple who met in a most untraditional way, Ashley Hebert Rosenbaum and JP Rosenbaum certainly embrace a traditional life.

The couple, who originally met on ABC’s seventh season of “The Bachelorette,” made the move to Pinecrest almost two years ago, looking for a more family-focused community after originally settling on Brickell. And though the New Yorker (JP) and Maine-native (Ashley) left the Northeast looking for a respite from the cold, they found much more. “After we had our first child we decided to relocate to Pinecrest because we fell in love with the sense of community and the feel of the area,” says Ashley, a pediatric dentist. “We were surrounded by people who led a similar lifestyle.”

The Rosenbaum’s lifestyle includes plenty of activities focused on their family “With two young children, it seems as if our whole life revolves around them; Pinecrest has been the perfect place for this to happen.” It’s also been a place for the couple to form relationships with other Pinecrest families, something Ashley says came easily thanks to school events, park visits and neighborhood strolls. “We finally feel as if we found a neighborhood that feels like home, a place that feels like the perfect place to raise our children and start a life for our family.”

Family Favorites

The Rosenbaums may be new to South Florida, but they’ve already carved out a spot for their growing family. Here are a few of their favorite spots…

Evelyn Greer Park
8200 SW 124th St, Pinecrest
“A typical weekend day in the life of our family starts with either soccer practice or swim practice with the kids, followed by a playdate or family picnic at our favorite go-to spot Evelyn Greer Park.”

Wayside Market
10070 SW 57th Ave, Pinecrest
“Wayside Market is one of our favorite spots to stop and grab some fruit, or a smoothie.”

Matheson Hammock Park
9610 Old Cutler Rd, Coral Gables
“The thing we love about Pinecrest is that there are endless things to do for kids. Our son, Ford, loves water, boats, and fish; Matheson Hammock Park is his favorite lookout spot. When we first moved to Pinecrest we took him there and he found a coconut that he kicked around the lagoon for hours. He still talks about it today.”

Home Base
“In the afternoon, we love to take our bikes, and scooters out to ride around our neighborhood. All our neighbors know our son as the little boy who flys by on his scooter and rides in the cul de sac for hours.”
