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.

This is the face of exhaustion

This is what an overtired baby who won't nap looks like in our house:

And she still won't nap

...Still awake "blah blah blah blah...."

...but she sure is a cutie.


  1. Awwwwww, I love the blah blah blah's, even if she's overtired!

    1. To prove me wrong, she's already slept over 14 hours today! (8 hours last night, back to sleep for 4 1/2hours after 30min nursing and again a nap for nearly 3 hours far) I really cannot complain. She's awesome (and so cute even when she's overtired)

  2. Isn't it funny, when they are in desperate need of a nap and are up for, like, forever and we need to get stuff done,'s so hard, yet, the next day, they will sleep a ton and then we miss them?

    I linked you today in my post!

    1. Thanks!!! I totally missed her today. Left for the first time to go work out with Colleen from "Martin Family Moments" for one hour and missed her like crazy. Never had left her that long since she was born. And it was only with my Mom! I came home missing her so bad and she had tears in her bright blue eyes and I almost didn't want her to go to sleep for the night. Love that little girl like crazy.


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
