I'm a New York girl. No, not City. I'm from a small town Upstate. For those from outside of New York, Upstate encompasses all that is not The City. I grew up surrounded by cows, corn, and snow.
I met this guy at my first job out of college when I moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Dan won my heart and pretty soon, we were doing this in a little beach town called Cape May, New Jersey, in front of 50 or so of our family members and closest friends.
We went here for our honeymoon.
And saw that.
And did this.
While we were there, we decided we wanted to move here.
We loved it but moved to North Carolina after a year. I didn't like that, so I'm not going to share any pictures.
Nine months later, we were back. And happy.
A few years later, this happened. And we were even happier!
She has been our joy.
Endless source of laughter.
And partner in our travels.
Then Paityn started asking for a sister. And we decided it was time to pursue our dream of adopting. In January of 2012, Olivia joined our family.
An answer to three prayers.
And now you know all about me because these pictures capture that which is the most important to me: my family.
This blog is about exactly that.
Mostly the ups because I'm a glass half full kinda girl but sometimes the downs.
My life with my husband, raising our two little girls. Both balancing jobs and parenting. Learning as we go. And loving every minute of this crazy, wonderful life we created together.
