On August 17th Ceej and I made the trip to Hartford, Wisconsin to get our engagement pictures done. Our photographer, Amy McManigal, lives just 15 minutes from my grandparents, so we were thrilled to see them and make a weekend of it! We had a lot of fun and laughed a lot. And no, we didn't even get sick of kissing one another!
After being crazy in love for a decade, we officially became a family on May 23, 2009. We are thrilled to be married and enjoying this exciting time in our lives! Ceej worked as a Journeyman plumber and is now bidding jobs for a local plumbing company, and Em graduated from UW-Madison in December of 2008 and is in the Masters of Occupational Therapy program at the University of Minnesota to be completed in the Fall of 2011. Our sweet baby Hazel Leann arrived April 1, 2011 (no foolin'!) and is the biggest joy and blessing we didn't know we needed. Life isn't perfect, but it sure is wonderful - We're truly enjoying every new second of God's awesome plan for our lives!
