The Story Unfolds

Fast forward nearly one year later, Pete and I married on March 21rst, 2014.

Our first look before the wedding at Balboa Park in San Diego, CA.


After we married, we moved from sunny California to Michigan and purchased our first home.

I started teaching Kindergarten in Detroit and Pete began his graduate school for his Doctor of Physical Therapy.

During the next four years,  Pete and I had our hands full.

There were many busy nights filled with microwave meals and feeling exhausted after a long day’s work. Pete’s school was an hour commute one way. I faced an extensive work schedule that included many hours pouring over teaching methods, activity preparation, and feedback sessions.

But I created a home for us, hoping that one day this cozy house would be a place filled with memories for us and our future family.

    Rejoicing with you both. And know that the waiting period is not an in active. There are many things that God is doing behind the scenes that you do not know. Your waiting time Is also preparing your hearts. God knows the exact time.
