Ryan and I started dating when I was just two weeks shy of my 16th birthday. He was 17. We made it through high school and then college together and two weeks after I graduated college we finally got married! We were together 7 years before we got to say “I do.” The wedding day was incredible! We planned it for 18 months and when the day came, it was gone in an instant. I did my best to take it all in and I have wonderful memories (and pictures). One thing I will remember is getting in the car and driving away after it was all over and I just balled my eyes out. I cried so hard we ended up getting lost on our way to our new apartment (that’s where we stayed out first night). I cried because I was SO HAPPY! It was a day I imagined for a long time, and a Marriage I hope for for a long time and it finally came. It was wonderful.
Every day I’m so thankful to be married to Ryan. We have two kids now and a lot going on. We have a lot more responsibilities and I’m so glad to have such a great man to do life with forever!
Gracie was my first baby. We prayed so hard for her and she is everything I hoped for and more! She has this gorgeous red hair and sharp blue eyes. She loves to dance and have long conversations. She never stops asking questions and getting into the dirt outside.
Eli is our little man. He has one dimple and we see it all the time in his huge smiles! He is super ticklish and has no shame in his excessive burping and farts! He is growing up all to fast!
