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.

Baby Love... My Baby Love...

I know it's St. Valentine's Day and nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day" like a little cupid to love! 

I don't have a lot of time to "post" but the new little Miss Clara Rose Fullen is sleeping beside me and the "seems SOoooo BIG now" BIG sister Ava (how did she get that huge?) has headed to bed with Nana, so I thought I'd post a short video of my new "baby love" for you all (this was the day after she was born "pre-bath"). 

I plan on responding to everyone and have plenty of pictures to post, but it's not all that "comfortable" at the computer chair/desk right now (if you've ever given birth... you get it), so this is all you get! ;) Well that ...and a million thank you's to everyone, especially those who "prayed" me through labor. I was praying for you through those wonderful contractions and praying afterwards in thanksgiving for the the strength I gained from your support. Will fill everyone in soon. For now... I'm just loving her... and boy is she one EASY baby to love...


  1. Awww, I definitely see the resemblance between her and Ava!

  2. oh so squishy and delicious!! Hope that doesn't sound weird - you know what I mean! :)

  3. Oh, my goodness, soooo much cuuuutnesss!! Now if that doesn't make us all want another baby, nothing will!!!
