Love Story

I had been single for nearly 4 years when I met D and I knew I was at a place in my life where I wanted to find the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with.  I didn't want to waste time and I didn't want to play games.  I finally felt like I was in a positive place and I was building a life for myself in Colorado and I was protective I guess you could say, over my happiness.

D and I met at work in June 2011.  It seems incredibly cliche, but from the moment I met him, I knew he would be an important person in my life.  I had no idea what kind of impact he would make or what his "purpose" would be in my journey, but I knew it would be a big one {I hoped a good one too ;)} We got to know each other and he became one of my best friends over the course of 7 months.  He felt what I felt, but we were hesitant to jump into a relationship.  We had both been hurt in the past and neither one of us was very interested in simply 'dating'.

On February 4, 2012 we decided to make our relationship official.  I instantly felt like I was apart of something special. We were both completely committed to each other and to seeing where our relationship could take us.  I was happier than I thought I could be.  I finally had a partner.

We talked about getting married and having kids and truly opened up to each other. I could see a future with this man and I couldn't wait for it to start but I didn't want to get too ahead of myself.  I wasn't sure when D would be able to afford a ring and I wasn't sure when he would be "ready."  I also didn't want to be the girl that drops hints and essentially begs to be proposed to.  I got the shock of my life on December 31st, 2012/January 1st, 2013 when D proposed on the rooftop of the Tavern in downtown Denver while fireworks went off in the background.  It was my dream fairy tale turning into reality right before my eyes.

We were married June 7, 2014.  You can read all about that here!

After 8 months of wedded bliss and a few months of trying we got the best news ever and found out we were pregnant!  Duke Anthony joined our family October 24, 2015 and you can read all about that here and here.

We continue to write our love story each and every day...some days better than others.  ;)
