About Us

My photo
We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.

Good times!

So... things are moving along on the "wedding planning" front.  Dresses getting ordered, Tuxes getting fitted, shoes getting bought, songs being chosen, invitations getting sent out... etc... you know all those little details that could make anyone crazy and ask: "UGH!!!  WHY didn't we go to Rome, just the two of us?"...

...but in the midst of it all, we find time in our busy schedules to make room for each other. 

This past Sunday we went to Adoration & breakfast as usual & off we went fishing.  Usually it's just quiet time for us to enjoy each other and this week was cold (I do NOT like being cold).  So I bundled up with about FIVE sweatshirts, had Shaun do the dirty work of baiting the hooks...

...& we cast away. 

It was a BEAUTIFUL Autumn morning as we watched the day begin together.

We sat chatting about the wedding and how happy we were to spend the rest of our lives together.  How gorgeous it was that day as geese flew by and river otters swam under our poles (one even stuck his head out and gave a "good morning" chirp before he swam on) and I thought about how much I wanted to always remember these times together.

Things weren't quiet for long, though!  The fish started biting!

First this one...

Then this little guy made a valiant effort to eat something half his size!
(Had to commend him for trying)

Then another...

And another...

and FINALLY right before we left, I pulled in this guy!!!
(FYI:  If you look very closely at the 2nd pic you can see my FAVORITE thing I ever caught on the end of a fishing pole on my left hand!)

Overall, it was an awesome morning.  Off we went to Mass & spent the day together... which as always FLEW by. 

BUT... Lesson learned?  No matter how crazy life is, don't forget to make time for each other!  You never know what (or WHO) you might catch!

...till next time
