*I am currently taking this month off with hopes to have a clear direction to take the blog in for the future in terms of content, design, and goals. I want to make sure that this place stays intentional, genuine and as a creative outlet for me-even as my available time seems to shrink by the minute. Thanks for sticking around and please stay tuned. See you on May 1.
My husband and I met in the winter of 2008. It was enchanting. Sometimes awkward. We spent the next year getting to know one another while attending Grand Vally State University. He was an art student while I was studying communications. The summer of 2009 Josh asked me to be his wife. I cried. Then I said yes.
We were married on the 5th of June in 2010, just five weeks after I graduated college (he still had one year). We spent our first year of marriage living in Grand Rapids, MI, in our cozy Easttown apartment. Money was tight, everything was new, but we made it work. We also managed to acquire three chihuahuas who keep our life in a bit of constant chaos. We bought our house about a year later (in 2011) just two miles from the apartment and love it. Later that year I started this blog about our family and have been enjoying it ever since.
In early 2012 we found out we were expecting our first child. I grew round and round and round and then he was born on September 26, 2012. It was a miracle. It was a unforgettable experience. He has been a joy to us and we can't wait to watch him grow everyday.
