Our Story

Our life is something extraordinary! We live your average run of the mill life but it is our family and friends that make our life EXTRA ORDINARY.

Adam and I met in 2001 while I was bar tending at a local restaurant (he was of course a patron). At the time I was young and had no interest in a relationship so what spark we did have fizzled out. Fast forward two years later (2003) - we run into each other while out on the town with mutual friends and we hit it off. He was all over me like a cheap suit! I guess he had been pining for me all those years. NOTE: This is MY side of a story. I am sure he will say the opposite. After that night we were pretty much inseparable. By 2004 we were shacking up in a top dollar apartment in Manassas and in 2005 we were engaged and later married in 2006. I was a June bride. If you haven't seen the movie "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" then you wouldn't understand the importance of being a June bride. It is the ONLY month to get married in. Here is a link to see what I am talking about.

You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

We of course wanted to start a family so once we bought our house we tried our luck with a dog. At times it feels like we bit off more than we could chew with her but we love her anyways. She is a little tom-boy dog who will eat anything and hump anything she can get her paws on. She is full of life and personality and a big part of our family.

In 2008 we received a little surprise - our family was going to grow once again. Landon came as a surprise to us because we weren't planning on having kids yet but once I knew he was coming I was so ecstatic! I had always wanted a little boy and when Adam and I got married I knew I wanted a little boy with green eyes (like Adam) and red hair (like both of us). Prayers answered!

Since the birth of Landon our lives have done a complete 180. Every day we go on a new adventure with him. This blog is about our life and our journey. The ups and downs of parenthood. I want Landon to have something to look back on so he knows where he came from. I am also afraid that I will forget some of the stories and I really want to be able to embarrass the holy hell out of him when he is older. I love being a mom!

Thank you for your interest (although I am sure most of who is actually reading this is related to me in some fashion) in our life and I hope you enjoy yourself as you read how these Four Wall's Made Their Home.
