After seven long months of daily phone calls, hundreds of letters and pictures and too many emails to possibly count...I finally got to meet my prince charming!
Here are a few of the videos he sent me while he was overseas. I have never shared these before but you can see just how I fell in love with him! This is only 3 out of like 25, I could only get the shortest ones to upload to Blogger.
It was the first time I had ever been on a military base before, the first time I had ever done anything involving the military. I didn't come from a military family and all my brothers were too young to join and had no plans to, so I was a tad bit ignorant about the whole thing. Thankfully, a military wife reached out to me and gave me some helpful tips for being on base and just directions to where I was supposed to be going. Miraculously, I made it to the right spot and waited with all the other eager women and children.
October 15th, 2008 was a wonderful beginning to the rest of my life...I met my happily ever after!
When Jonathan and I were discussing possible wedding dates, I knew I wanted to have a fall wedding so naturally September and October came up. We even considered getting married on October 15th but decided we wanted the leaves to be changing and weather to be cooler and the 15th just didn't seem to line up with all the other events we had arranged so, we went with October 22nd! It was most definitely a night to remember!
God decided to make October even more special for us by giving us Sebastian, 3 weeks early! He wasn't due until November 2nd but arrived happily on October 14, 2011! Our blessings in October are endless...we look forward to celebrating them all every year!
My niece, Emma and brother, Pierce also have birthdays in October so lots to celebrate!
