After Mark and I said our "I do's", we headed off for a two week honeymoon to the Smoky Mountains and Disney World!! We had a great time just getting to know each other again. Being separated for 11 months makes you appreciate that person so much more!
Over the next few years, we enjoyed our life together. We both had finished school, had acquired great jobs, built a house, got two dogs, and then one day it was time to start a family! Five years and 3 months after we got married, our lives were forever changed with our first baby, Reagen Rose!! Then 22 months later, Kennedy Raine came along. Then 2 years later, Lincoln James Weldon, and then 2 yrs and 9 months after Lincoln, we were blessed with the fourth and final installment of our family, Madison Hope!
That's a lot of kids in a short amount of time! But I wouldn't change that for anything!!!!
Mark and I have been blessed to have a wonderful family and home life. Over the past years, we have often thought about our future and what we want out of life itself. Obviously, the number one thing we want most is to seek and know God's will for us. That's a hard thing to know sometimes. I guess that is where our faith comes in to help us lean more on God than ourselves. Recently, Mark has read a number of books that basically help you understand what you want out of life. He has come up with a life statement that I am looking forward to seeing it come to pass: Pursue the extraordinary!
As Mark and I try to pursue the extraordinary, not only for us but for our kids as well, we hope that our story continues to touch and bless people as we continue down this road called life!!
