Our Love Story

Michael graduated High School in 2008 and I graduated in 2010.
Michael and I actually went to the same high school, but never talked to eachother. We were actually in the same Ag class. He was the "party boy" and I was the "quiet and reserved girl".

Fast forward to October 22nd 2011.
Michael sent me a message on Facebook messenger with it simply saying "hi".

We both had sons from a previous relationship. Hunter (Michael's son) at the time was 3 years old and Rylan (my son) just turned 1 year.

We went back and forth in messenger and eventually exchanged phone numbers. At the time he was working out of town and would be gone working for 9 days and then back home for 5 days. So our only way to communicate with eachother was over the phone.

After just 4 days of talking to eachother we knew something was special and Michael asked me to be his girlfriend.

When Michael came back into town from work we made plans to meet up. We met up at Walmart Tire and Lube parking lot to leave one of our vehicles and go spend time together.

Let me tell you, this was the most nerve racking thing ever! I had Rylan with me, and had to go meet this guy that I've never talked to in person, just over the phone and texts.

Anyways, after we met in the parking lot, we loaded up in my truck and headed to an outlet mall to walk around and just spend time with eachother.
We had a great time that day! Each day after that we were inseparable.

Christmas Eve 2011- Michael asked me to marry him!
It wasn't a huge over the top proposal, but it was perfect for us!

He asked me to marry him and be his wife on my mom's living room couch right beside the Christmas tree. It happened so fast, but we just knew it was meant to be. I was so surprised and excited!

We immediately began planning our wedding for October 27th 2012. We had 10 months to plan our wedding so everything went by SO fast during that time - especially with Michael still working out of town. But we tried to make the best of our time that we had together while he was home.

We took our engagement pictures in February 2012 with the help of my brother, Cody. They weren't at all professional but we made do.

On, October 27th 2012 (just 1 year after becoming boyfriend and girlfriend), we said "I DO!"

This was the night before our wedding!

We had a fairly small wedding with just close friends and family. We wanted to include our boys in everything!

Shortly after getting married, I got pregnant and we were going to have a baby girl.
On November 14, 2013 we welcomed Kyleigh Ann into this world!

During that time Michael and I went thru A LOT of trials. He was still working out of town. So I was basically doing everything on my own with 2 kids under 3 years old. It was definitely hard! We managed to listen and learn from these hard times.

Our kids are now 10, 8, and 5 years old and we will be celebrating 8 years together and 7 years married this year!

Y'all stay tuned for more on our story as a FAMILY!
