- Marijanna and Shaun
- 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.

My dear friend Theresa
"A Friend is someone who knows all about you... and loves you just the same"
Today I had the opportunity to spend some time with my very dear friend Theresa. We have known each other for years and I'm not always sure that she realizes this, but she has been such an amazing gift to me. She has taught me far more than she will ever realize and is one of those friends that I can say my life would have been missing out on something had I not met her.
We began our morning at a lovely place called "Margeurites" in Westport and chatted incessantly (well, I did) over a lovely breakfast. We sat down by the water and then took a lovely drive and eventually ended up at my home "catching up". As usual (when we actually have some time on our hands) the hours flew by and yet it never seems I can get enough of her company.
Some friends are just that way aren't they? You can't imagine your life without them. Their advice means more to you than almost anyone. Their example of perserverance indespensable and admirable. Their laughter pure gold. Their prescence... precious. Their friendship... invaluable. Thank you Lord for my dear dear dear friend.
"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival."
- C. S. Lewis
