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.

More gifts...

Ava also recieved this super cute outfit from her Grama yesterday and this cool "Zoo" toy.  She is SOooo into "Zoo Animal" noises right now and as you can see is excited and dancing and making Elephant and Lion noises (& hippo faces).  She's been playing with it all day (in her new duds).  Thank you Grama, Uncle Paul and Auntie Crystal (& cousins).  She's having a blast with it!


  1. My Bridget does the same thing, when I say "bye bye" she runs and says "Bye daddy!" They are so used to mommy being here, and daddy leaving. (for work) That was cute!! Loved her chubby cheeks when she did the hippo!!

    Merry Christmas!

    1. She's such a sweetheart. I was laughing at the bye bye, but you're right, she thinks she should do it to him instead of the camera. Wish you could see her teeth when she does the hippo.

      Have a Blessed Christmas, my friend.
