Wish You Were Here

Hello beautiful people,

As a recently married couple, Buck and I are so excited to begin our journey together, and couldn't be more content with the life we lead. God has blessed us with beautiful families, wonderful friends, and intriguing relationships that grow every day. We are so fortunate to be in our position, and look forward to seeing where God leads us in the future.

Quite frankly, though, we wish you were here. We wish time, distance, and financial constraints were not part of the equation that we find ourselves in. We realize that as we grow up, so does everyone else in our lives, and often we grow up in different cities, states, and countries.  It is my hope (and partly my new year's resolution) to use this blog as a means to keep people in our lives updated on the happenings of Buck and myself.

If there is anything that we have learned about ourselves in the past few years as a couple, it is that we enjoy sharing. We enjoy sharing our time, stories, and thoughts with each other and with our friends and family. We are caught up in such an exciting time in our lives, and as a couple experiencing many firsts (our first Christmas, our first house guests, etc). Although these happenings may not be CNN worthy...we hope that you will enjoy reading about our experiences just as much as we enjoy sharing them.

We wish each of you was here with us every day, but that is not our reality. Therefore, we hope that in between the times that we share with you this blog will serve as a way of connecting our lives.

Wish You Were Here,


"I dig my toes into the sand
The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds
Strewn across a blue blanket
I lean against the wind
Pretend that I am weightless
And in this moment I am happy...happy"

-Wish You Were Here, Incubus
