I am Jennifer (the main blogger) who is an energetic, outgoing daughter of the King, sister, wife, friend and best of all~ mommy! I find it a great joy to have MANY of these roles. Yet, the one role I find the least I deserve is being a child of God! I come from a family of 4 girls and grew up in a girls world!
But I soon met Mike....
(An- energetic, outgoing, personable, free-spirted (except for the finances), frugal,fun loving guy, son of God and awesome husband and daddy! )
Mike and I actually met the summer of 1999 at Camp BaYouCa (in Upstate NY). He chased after me but I was sure he was a perfect fit for one of my younger sisters! Well guess who proved me wrong? He won! We fell in love the end of the summer and we dated for 2 and 1/2 years! He had a lot to teach me about guys and he knew alot coming from a family of 3 boys!
I started teaching the fall of 2000 near Mike's University in Upstate NY, at a private school! We were engaged on Aug.18th 2001, and married on June 29, 2002!
We were married for 2 years and moved to GA with Mike's job in Public Accounting!
In the midst of our move we agreed that we would wait at least 5 years before we had kids!
We purchased our first home in June of 2005.
Once we moved into the home, Mike then focused on completing his CPA, and continued working in Public Accounting.
After 2 years of living in our 4 bedroom home and only using about 40% of it, we decided to expand the family. However, the time to fill the house took us awhile.
We are grateful to God that we only had to wait about 8 months for our first little blessing, but it was a very LONG 8 months of waiting for this little miracle....
