I married my best friend on May 11, 2007 in the Mesa, Arizona temple.
Less than 2 weeks later he was on a plane to Iraq and I was headed back to live with my parents.
Blissful, I know right?
Luckily, we made it through and about 15 months later he was back home and we were ready to start our lives together.
We always joke that unlike most marriages, our first year was easy. I guess that happens when you're not even in the same country.
We purchased our first house in November of 2008 and were finally on our way to establishing our home.
In 2010 we got word that another deployment was looming.
And the day we found out I was pregnant, my husband left for Iraq, again.
Again, I know, blissful right.
Talk about a world wind of emotions.
We were lucky to have him take his R & R for the birth of our baby girl.
And after 2 wonderful weeks, he boarded the plane for Iraq.
And this is how we felt about that.
Three months later, he returned home from a successful tour of duty.
On July 24, 2013 we added a second bundle of Joy to our family.
We spent many years in our fun blissful life and in October of 2016 we were thrown a curveball when God decided to bless us with TWINS!
Life has been a crazy rollercoaster ever since. They are the greatest blessing and we love them to death.
We could not be happier.
So come on in, and step into a little slice of our beautiful life as we navigate through a new life as a family of 6.
