7 Years and counting...


On August 26, 2011, Greg and I celebrated the 7 year anniversary of our first date!
7 years ago, I had a stomach full of butterflies waiting for the cutest boy to come pick me up! I'd met him in a college class earlier that day. I'd been dropping him subtle body-language hints for a few weeks but he wasn't getting them. Finally, I winked which caused him to crash into a door as he tried to hold it open for me. Kinda forward of me but I am so glad I did it.
I didn't know where we were going but he promised my dad to have me back by curfew. I waited anxiously for that seafoam green 1969 Chevelle to come rumbling down my street. When it did, it was all I could do not to go running and hop in. I maintained composure and slowly walked my way toward my future.
We went to a car show (something we still love to do!) and spent the evening talking our heads off. I was back by curfew but I couldn't let him go home. There was so much more I wanted to know about him. We talked in my parents' living room until the wee hours of the morning. Its kind of co-dependent but we saw each other every single day for the first 8 months except for a pre-arranged vacation he had paid for that was supposed to have been 5 days but he couldn't bear that so he came over at 6am the morning he was supposed to leave so he could see me for 5 minutes and knock one day off our unbearable separation.
I have had the most colorful and love-filled life I could never even have dreamed of having. I don't regret one single choice and there are no signs of that 7 year itch on either part! Greg, I love you with all of me!

Wow. We were such babies. I don't even remember that...

We made it through building our first home. The home where he proposed, we came home to after our wedding, where we've loved and cared for our two dogs and had our first baby!

About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
