We got married 4 years ago on the amazing beach of the Secret Harbor Resort in St. Thomas. We had the best wedding ever! I highly suggest a destination wedding to anyone! Best decision I ever made. I think about our wedding often and how unforgetable it was and how much I can't wait until we can get back to St. Thomas. It is a pretty easy trip from Virginia Beach so I am hoping it won't be too many more years until we can get back down there.
I wanted to share a brief history about Matt and I in case you are new here and would love to take a walk down memory lane with me :)
Matt and I met online - Yahoo personals to be exact. There were some entertaining conversations because I was a nanny at the time and referred to the kids often so he thought I had kids and wasn't sure he wanted to get involved with that. This was our first date over 6 years ago.
I moved in after 3 months of knowing him. I was in quite a predicament and he offered. I was scared out of my mind because I didn't think we were that serious yet. LOL! Boy was I wrong. I am pretty sure his brother hated me at first for moving in and basically kicking him out. Thankfully we have a great relationship now.
4 months after that we got our adorable puppy (Kodac) after putting Matt's Shiba Inu to sleep due to cancer. Gosh that was a hard night! RIP Riley
We got engaged in February 2011 on a gloomy day at the beach. I just thought we were taking the dog to the beach and when we were about to leave he proposed. It was the sweetest thing ever. I was so shocked! It made my love for the beach that much more.
We knew right away we wanted to do a destination wedding with my family being in Colorado and his family here. We had visited St. Thomas the year before and knew exactly where we were going to get married. Now planning a destination wedding was a
I always knew I wanted kids, Matt, he took a little convincing; but I think deep down he wanted them he was just scared. We got pregnant in March 2013 and welcomed our little monkey November 27th, 2013. The second best day of my life. She is such a blessing to our family. She is constantly keeping us on our toes. As we enter the terrible 2's, with another one on the way we couldn't be happier to embark on this journey together. You can see the announcement pictures here for Brooksie #2.
The past 4 years have been better than I could have imagined. I can't imagine life with anyone else and I am so thankful to have my best friend by my side. Here are to many more years and many more memories!
