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.

These are a few of my favorite things!

I've been happily thinking of Julie Andrew's little song to her children on the Sound of Music

and thought I'd put a few of my own here (includes some pregnancy cravings...)

Lilacs and Tulips... remind me of Nana

(She liked Yellow)

Fruit Salad in a big bowl, (no banana... ugh mushy)

Old Couples in love

Young children skipping

Rainy days...

or.. SUNNY days

Daffodils in Spriiing!!!

then there's Ice Cream ("Totally Turtle")

actually ANY Ice Cream

Any kind I've haaaad...

I simply remember my favorite things...

and then I don't feel SOOOOO Baaaad!!!

Ok... off to Country Whip!


  1. oh no... all that build up and then settling for soft serve?!? Acushnet Creamery is totally where it's at. lmao
