New Beginnings

In September, 2007, a most unlikely message sparked something that would change our lives forever.  Thanks to facebook, instant messenger, and free nights and weekends, Christopher and I spent the better part of every night learning everything that we could about each other.  A whirlwind vacation, a blizzard, a baptism, and about 20 months later, we were married.

Here we are outside the temple in Louisville, Ky.

We have been so blessed in these last 4 weeks since we were married.  Christopher works part- time while he attends classes at UC (DAAP) and I'm working part-time, and looking for a new job.   We have two fantastic dogs, our black Lab/ Border Collie mix named Charlie, and the Chihuahua named Bruiser. We've been keeping busy getting the house in order, and trying to figure out how to be married!  

Most importantly, we are grateful that we had the opportunity to be sealed together in the temple.  It wasn't an easy thing for us, as Christopher is one of only two members of the church in his family, and there was plenty of opposition to our decision to be married in the temple.  

I'm glad we were able to begin our lives together in the most sacred place on earth.
