7 years.

Seven years ago today I married the love of my life. We were married almost exactly a year after we met. I was not looking for a "boyfriend" or love, certainly not marriage. I was looking forward to moving to my apartment in Kansas City and starting my new job & living in the "real world". I was going to save up for a shiny new red Ford Escape. I wanted one so badly. I still moved to the "big city" but I could not get this man off my mind. I felt differently about him than any other man. He truly made me feel special, like a princess. He respected me. He wanted to get to know me, the real me. I quickly realized that I was falling in love, we were falling in love, and Oh my gosh, what am I going to do? Well, we did what any rational couple would do-we got engaged! And then married 4ish months later! :)

Stephen, I love you with all my heart. Every day you make me feel like I am the most beautiful girl on the planet. You are caring & compassionate, intuitive, kind, wise, trusting and sooo romantic. Much more than me. :) You are an amazing father. We've been through so much already; ups and downs and we are stronger, better now. Thank you for understanding me, for your patience and unconditional love. Heres to 7 more years. Who woulda' ever thought?


I love you forever plus a week


Your wifey& firefly
Megan





When I married Stephen, I also had the great honor of becoming these precious little boys' stepmom. I still think they are precious even though they are now 14 and 12! They are a blast. It has truly been a joy. I love 'em.


I had my dream wedding. Outdoors in a beautiful courtyard, under the trees, nestled in the city with fresh flowers-even white folding chairs.

And here are some silly pics from Will's I-pod thing(I thought it was a phone, but it pretty much does everything except make phone calls, I'm so confused.)

Aneeways, here are some pics of our little lovies.


Mmhm, why yes I am very clean & squishy.
With her stethoscope.



Sweet Max. Will made this with CamWow!



Still getting kisses from my boy. Cherishing.




Oh, silly silly girrull. You make us laugh.




Adios.
