Taking it one day at a time, appreciating our new life as a family of three, and learning to be new parents to a little girl that we are so thankful for.

How I Met My Hubby
I'm so excited to finally be able to participate in one of Kelly's "Show Us Your Life" posts! I've been waiting on one that I can participate in and also have the time to post about, so here we go...
My husband Shannon and I have known each other since middle school and went to the same high school as well. Shannon was much more "promiscuous" than I was in high school. He dated around....a lot. And I was more of a nerd, really just wanting to make good grades so I could get into college. We both were in serious relationships all throughout high school, never quite making our way to each other. I left for college at North Carolina State University and a year later he graduated and went to the opposite end of the state at Western Carolina University. In the summer of 2004, I had broken things off with my boyfriend and he had done the same with his girlfriend. We somehow found our way to each other and fell really hard. We started dating on July 28, 2004. (Our first daughter was born exactly 5 years later!).
We continued to date long distance for the next 2 years and when I graduated from college in 2006, I made the decision to continue my education at Western Carolina University, to get my masters.
We had so much fun together at WCU and really spent that time together "growing up".
On December 18, 2006 (Shannon's parent's wedding anniversary), Shannon asked me to marry him and of course I said yes.
We were married on May 31st, 2008 and have been living happily ever after since then!
We have been through so much together. I was so attracted to Shannon's charm, bright eyes and generous heart. He is probably the funniest/wittiest person I know. And he gave me a precious daughter that looks just like him!
I'm a 25 year old new mommy to our daughter, Emmie Lane, wife to a wonderful husband, and a Registered Dietitian who enjoys decorating, food and cooking, and spending time with my family and little girl who is growing way too fast.
