2 years ago today...

I was rushing around to get my hair and make-up looking flawless for the moment I saw Jeff.  Here I sit, today, in the same t-shirt that I slept in, NO make-up, and my hair up in a clip that came out of a set of hot rollers.  My oh my... where 2 years can take you.


If someone ever told me that I'd be married to a Minnesotan sports fanatic who thinks I sound like George W. Bush and that my 'spiritual gift' is "making sandwiches"... I would have laughed.  I'm still laughing... everyday!  I don't know how it happened, but I'm married to my dream guy and the mother of  his beautiful daughter.  I am truly humbled that God thinks highly enough of me to have matched me with Jeff.  He is seriously ONE OF A KIND and I'm so, so thankful that he's mine!

Marriage isn't as easy as I thought it would be... especially when you're expecting 4 months in... but there is NO ONE else that I'd rather be partnered with for this journey!

What a beautiful post Shauna. Jeff is so lucky and blessed to have you as his wife, as we are to have you for a daughter-in-law. Thank you BOTH for our precious Lily.

Love you, Mark & Carla

I totally forgot it was your anniversary. Wow--time really does fly. I'm glad Jeff is part of the family. He is one of a kind. I hadn't heard that your spiritual gift was making sandwiches--that's awesome. I'll need you to make me one. Happy anniversary!

So, 2 years ago from today...and how old is Lily again? Ha, ha, only kidding.

Happy Anniversary Jeff and Shauna! I, too, never imagined marrying a Minnesotan, sports fanatic. haha (or having an unlimited supply of Kelloggs goodies at our disposal)

Congratulations. It certainly doesn't seem like two years. Sorry for not posting on THE day.
