Happy Birthday, Michael!


A couple of days ago, we had our last date pre-parenthood to celebrate Michael’s birthday. It was wonderful and much needed.

But TODAY is the actual day my amazing husband turns 25! So I just wanted to take a few minutes to brag on him an wish him the greatest birthday ever.


Michael, these are some of the things I love about you:

• You’re my best friend. We have such a great time together!
• You treat me like a queen.
• I love that we like so many of the same things.
• It melts my heart for you to be so involved with getting everything ready for Josiah.
• I love it when you talk to my belly and try to play with our son. You’re going to be the greatest daddy ever!
• The way you trust in God is such an encouragement to me and others.
• You do a great job with the students. It makes me proud to listen to you teaching them.
• You truly have a caring heart.
• I love all of our quirky jokes and quotes. It’s fun being weird with you.
• You’re an amazing man, daddy, & husband… I could go on and on.

Have an amazing birthday!! I love you more than words can say!

First Comes Love…

First comes LOVE

Then comes MARRIAGE

Then comes a BABY in a baby carriage!

That’s right–we’re having a baby!  We’ll post more of our story later, but for now know that we are beyond excited and thankful.  God has blessed us so much!  I’m in my 9th week, we’ve heard the heartbeat and had our first ultrasound, and our due date is July 12.

We’re excited to be able to share this special time in our lives with you.
