Sharing my hopes, dreams, and creativity

 I am back in the blogging world!  Blogged a couple posts a few years back, but am now focused to make blogging a regular commitment and to share my life through words and photos. This blog is all about what I find inspiring, my life in general, and to connect with others.  

My hubby and I met at church when I was in 5th grade. He was my brother's best friend. In junior high, I started to hang out with Dale's group of friends and started to get to know him a lot better. By the time I was 15 we were inseparable best friends and started dating in 2001.
In May 2007, Dale proposed to me at the Scottsdale Love statue.  Of course, I said "YES!"
Our wedding day was a cool, crisp day on November 12, 2007. It started out as a strange day though... 
The night before I had a dream that I was walking down the aisle and my hair was a fro, with no make up on.... Now, could that be a premonition of things to come? Who knows, but I will tell you that my make up artist NEVER arrived to do my make up on my wedding day. True story. So my hairdresser (who has never done make up in her life) took the plunge and tried to make it worthwhile. She did a fantastic job!
We got married at Stonebridge Manor and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding.  It was the best day of my life. I have never experienced a day where I was soo calm and collected and just danced freely. Normally I am very conservative, second guess everything, and don't want to dance since people are watching. Not this day.  This day was perfect!
We had been married for about 3 years, and found out we were pregnant!  I think we got pregnant on the first try and were ecstatic! I wrote about it on this blog years ago. Follow the link for the story: Finding out we are pregnant.

Our son, Joshua Kalel (yes, his middle name is from Superman) was born on Christmas Eve 2010! 2 weeks early, and what a surprise :)  The best Christmas gift I could ask for.

Flash forward to current days...
We are still here and living the life!
