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.

Kelly Ann

 *warning*  LOTS of Photos ahead! *warning*

My friend Kelly Ann is one of the sweetest, most generous, selfless people I've ever met.  We worked together for years when I taught and now she's taken her passion for photography and brought it every few months into my home and shared her gift with us.  She's taken pictures of:

Our Wedding...
(these are some of my students at the end of the recieving line.  They drew a "Wedding picture" for me.  I didn't even know Kelly was taking pictures)

 (notice I have two here)

(the little boy's name is "Shawn" and here he was meeting my "Shaun" for the first time.  He concluded that I must like the name Shaun/Shawn)

(Youth group kids)

(Telling my flower girl that she was the BEST flower girl ever)

  (Happy to finally be married)

Ava's Baby Shower (the one thrown by the school)...

Ava at Christmas (3months)...

Ava this Spring (around 6 or 7 months)...

and now Ava this Summer (at 10 1/2 months)... (these are NOT Kelly's photos, just some I took of her while she was "In the Zone".  Hers will be coming soon)

How blessed are WE to know her?  Thank you so much Kelly for all of the moments you have captured for our family.  There is no way to ever repay you for this gift, but please know that we are grateful.  (Watch for more to come)


  1. These were all very very beautiful!!! Love the wedding pics too!

    1. I DID, but recently cut it all off (bout 20") and donated it.

  2. OH, my what a gift in your friend you have!!! beautiful photos, even more beautiful the people in the photos!!! ava, you are so adorable, I always come here and want to kiss you up!!!

    Love your morning glories too, wow!!

    1. TELL me about it! She's so great. Thank you for the compliment, I love photo memories! My Ava... She's such a cutie. We wish you COULD visit and give her tons of kisses. Then I could do the same to little Sim.

      The morning glories. First thing I look at when I come downstairs everyday. Since they only last a day it reminds me a bit of God's blessings each day poured out in abundance a day at a time.


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
