Meet Us

Dustin & I met on Christmas Eve, 2006. I was 16. He was 21. 

We ate spaghetti and meatballs for dinner & over the following two years, grew to become best friends. I knew from the beginning that I would marry him, but I waited as patiently as possible as the weeks, months & years passed by while we built our friendship and God worked out all the details.

In 2008, I graduated high school & went to a local university to study nursing. Dustin called me up one day and asked me out. To Panera. For lunch. Our first official date. Yes!

Finally, I thought! He knows we are meant to be. We ate soup, then drank hot chocolate & dated more casually for a year before he took a month long trip to Africa. Upon his arrival home, he told me he was in love with me and had realized it having been out of the country and away for so long. 
Finally, I thought! I basically told him I've loved him since I met him. But that is another story....

We decided to make our relationship official and continued to date more seriously with the intention of marriage one day. On June 23, 2011, Dustin took me by complete surprise when he got down on one knee & presented to me the most beautiful ring I had ever seen, asking me to be his wife and bride forever. I of course said yes & we were married the following year on September 1, 2012. 

We spent a week on the north shore for our honeymoon & although our plans were very different than God's plans, we welcomed our sweet baby girl into our world on May 23, 2013. 

We are now expecting our second daughter, due early September 2015. We are a little family of 3 becoming 4 and the adventures we have every day together make life absolutely lovely. 
He is my rock & my girls are my sun, my moon & all of my stars.
