The Story of Us

This weekend my husband Craig and I will be celebrating five years of marriage and in honor of that I thought I’d put together a little story of how we came to be. This is the story of us and our little family of three that started nearly 11 years ago…

  • The Story of Us

    The Story of Us

    Once upon a time there was a little family. There was a dad named Craig, a mom named Lauren and a most loved little baby girl named Fern. But, it wasn’t always the three of them; this little family started many years ago.

  • It all started in high school...

    It all started in high school...

    Craig and Lauren grew up together. Craig was friends with Lauren’s brother and she thought he was annoying, but then in high school they started snowboarding together and became friends.

  • Then they fell in like...

    Then they fell in like...

    After becoming friends they realized the kind of liked each other and started dating. They even went to senior prom together. Craig and Lauren were just babies themselves back then.

  • Then they fell in love...

    Then they fell in love...

    Craig and Lauren headed off to college and over the years they went from being in like to being in love.

  • Then came marriage...

    Then came marriage...

    Craig and Lauren decided that after dating for six years it was about time to tie the knot. They got married on a day in December as the snow lightly fell outside behind them and it was pretty magical.

  • Then they got a dog...

    Then they got a dog...

    Before adding a human baby to their family, Craig and Lauren decided to add a furry friend to their family and that’s when Marley came to live with them. They loved her like a baby anyway.

  • Then they learned a lot...

    Then they learned a lot...

    Craig and Lauren learned that there were a lot of things to learn about each other and about being married, but they had fun figuring it out together.

  • Then came baby...

    Then came baby...

    One day Craig and Lauren decided that they’d like to add a little baby to their family. They waited and waited for her for nine long months and while they waited they decided they would name her Fern.

  • Then life changed for the better...

    Then life changed for the better...

    On a day in January, much like the day Craig and Lauren got married, as the snow lightly fell, baby Fern Winter made her way into the world and they loved her instantly and their hearts grew to make room for the newest member of their family.

  • And then the story continued...

    And then the story continued...

    This is where you usually say that “they lived happily ever after”, but this is just where the story starts…five years of marriage and a sweet little baby are only the beginning of this family’s story.
