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.

Guess who needs to be strapped in?

Ava's really learning how to sit up. 

She's been pretty strong, but when I see her doing ab crunches just to reach her toes, I realize it's time for me to finally do more excersizing!  I kept placing her back into a reclined position, so she wouldn't fall forward and she'd just push against me... hard... and sit back up.  I know I should have been doing it all along, but she definitely needs to be strapped in now.


  1. We never strapped Annamarie in either until she started trying to escape :)

    1. I hear you Allison. She's getting to be such a wiggleworm! How old is your little one again? I love your blog. You're SO creative!


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
