When I fell head first in love, I may have given myself a concussion.

Posted by in Everyday | 14 Comments

Five years ago today, Tom and went on our first date. I plan to write out “our story” eventually, but for now, know this: it’s been a whirlwind half decade. If you had told me then that today we would be celebrating not only surviving five years together, but also that we have three beautiful daughters, I would not have believed you.

Fall days at the park


I’m so glad I said yes to that date.

    😀 Are the names just rolling through your head now? I’m excited to hear what you’ve chosen. Are you guys going to wait until she’s born to announce a name? I like Aoife. It’s pronounced eefah, or something like that. It’s Irish, I met a girl with that name in Korea. Do name suggestions ever get annoying? I hope not!
