Five years ago, I was coming out of a terrible break up. I was engaged and it was called off on Christmas Eve. I was in a terrible place, and family and friends got me through it. And my faith.
With all that said, on a whim, I decided to try E-Harmony. At the time, E-Harmony was so new but I was willing to try it. I had nothing to lose. I was matched with an attorney who was divorced, an engineer from Louisiana who was really quiet. And Stephen. When I saw his picture, he looked so CUTE and FUN! He had the biggest smile on his face. We matched with 99% accuracy. We talked on the phone for about 100 hours the first week. We were so taken with one another. The next weekend, Stephen came to visit and the rest was history. He told my daddy immediately that we would be getting married. SOON.
Needless to say, my mama about flipped out! Ha!
I will say we have a very FUN marriage. It is tough sometimes (okay, LOTS of times) due to our jobs, hectic schedules, traveling, kids, money, being a homeowner, and just making time for each other. But I love him more than life itself. He is my life. I can't imagine my life without him. He always makes me feel better about things, tells me I am beautiful, tells me I am a great mother, and also makes me laugh until I cry. And he is SUCH a good daddy. Paisley adores him.
So when people ask what we have been up to for the past few years, here you go:
Engaged in May, married, started a new job and moved to Nashville in September 2005, pregnant with Paisley exactly one year later, sold a house in November, moved once, built a house and moved twice, Paisley was born in April 2007, Stephen started a new job and career change this July 2009 and then pregnant with Griffin in August
and a new baby April 1!!
It has been a busy 5 years!!
Definitely try works!!
