A Big Day of Celebration

On this day three years ago, I married my very best friend, and I love him more now than I did then. Our love has certainly grown over these past three years, and our lives have changed a lot since then.

I got a teaching job and finished my Master’s Degree. Colby became an Advanced EMT and went to more classes {near and far} than I could have ever imagined. We got a dog and bought a house.


Now, three years later to the date, we celebrated the coming of our first little bundle of joy with my first ever baby shower in my honor at school. Did I mention that we only have two days of school left?!?! Can you sing “School’s Out For Summer”? You know you sang that like Alice Cooper. If you didn’t, you should be ashamed.


Anyhow, the ladies of my grade level hosted an amazing shower that left me with a bundle of gifts that we are counting our blessings for. We are so thankful for so many people that have taken the time to make this baby transition as easy as possible.


The décor and food was way more than one would expect in the school library. The lovely ladies in my grade level can take all of the credit for that. Absolutely lovely and delicious!

And how fitting that my favorite flower was chosen to be a part of the décor as well!

Then, there was the cake….french vanilla…..and it was decadent. Super moist!


Thanks to everyone who made my day today! For a week with a rough start, this sure did turn it around!
