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.

Wonderful Wednesday

So it's another Wonderful (rainy) Day.  The kids have gone home for the long weekend and unfortunately I think I've caught some sort of bug ...and yet I still feel lucky enough to have the opportunity to rest tomorrow if needed!  It's sort of like my body knows when it's "allowed" to get sick.

Just thought I'd share a funny from my little Ryan.  We must be talking about the wedding a lot because today when we were saying our Hail Mary's his little "lightbulb" lit up and he said,

"Miss Marijanna?  I know why Mary is called Mary!" 
"Why, Ryan?"
"Because she was Mary-ied (Married) first!"
I just smiled and thought it was the cutest thing.

One of the other little girls who was in my class last year gave me a hug this morning and then looked intently at my left hand hand. 

"Why do you have that ring Miss Marijanna?"
"Because I'm getting Married, Melody"
(All excited) "My MOMMY has a ring like that Miss Marijanna!  She got it from my Daddy!"

I just LOVE kids.  They're making this whole thing SO much fun!


  1. Did I mention how excited I am for you! I know God has his own time, but I just feel it's about time! Good things will come from you getting married to a great guy! Lots of love!

  2. Thanks my dear friend. I miss you so much. You definitely brought a unique character to our HFHN home that has not ever been able to be replaced. I am so so so blessed with Shaun... and I agree, Thank you Lord. It's about time!!!


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
