Through the Years

8 years. Yup that is how long it has been since I went on the first date with the man I now call my husband, companion and father of our son. Wow!

We were just two kids (16 & 19) looking for love, not knowing that it would be with each other.

What a wonderful 8 years we have had. My love for this man grows deeper every day.

That Brad Paisley song about loving more is so true. I do love him more than our first "I love you" and the day we said "I do".

What a crazy fun 8 years it has been. I couldn't imagine anyone better to spend it with than him. We've grown from a family of 2 to 3 and (Lord willing) one day will add many many more! :)

I have just added random pictures throughout the years (honestly the one's I could find quickly), so sit back and enjoy some of our memories!


Here is that Brad Paisley song I was talking about earlier in the post...

Thank you Daniel for first and foremost putting Christ first in your life, but also loving me and asking me to be your bride on this wild ride we call life!

I love you!


Today is a very special day. It is the birthday of a man I love so dearly and WISH I could be there to throw my arms around his neck! This man has been in my life since my first breath. He has loved and cared for me. He was the first man I ever loved.

My love and appreciation for him has gone even deeper since I have become a grown up--but even more since I have become a parent. The love for your child is so hard to describe. The best way is to just experience it.

Throw back...

For a man who doesn't love AT ALL to have his picture taken, I have found quiet a few here to share with you. (he is going to kill me for this next one!)

He is hard working, but NEVER missed an event for his kiddos.

Our family has grown a lot the past few years, and he loves his sons & daughter in law like his own!

And is good to us...

And he recently (15 months ago) became Big K (aka Grandpa) to a little boy that just adores him!

I was privileged enough to have him walk me down the aisle and lift my vail.

Every time I think of my Daddy I smile. I love the man of God he is. Thank you Daddy for being who you are and loving us through it all.

This song below reminds me of my dad and myself.

I love you Dad and will always be your little girl. Hope you have a fabulous day (weekend)!

**fun fact-Daniel met my Dad for the first time 8 years ago today. We were at my parents church where I was in a Christmas play. I got up on stage and announced his birthday and insisted the whole congregation sing Happy Birthday!

And the hands go...


So since our Tigers are pretty much--dominating, i've have been teaching Eli to put his hands in the air like they do in the tunnel before they come on the field (daniel claims he is just teaching him to raise his hands thats all :)).

And...........E got an early Christmas gift from Big K and DeDe. He pretty much LOVES it :)
