Happy April 1st Chad

3 Years ago today my husband Chad proposed to me at Tanyard Park in Bella Vista, Arkansas and today I would like to dedicate my blog to my supportive and loving husband Chad. Looking back on the past three years it seems like a lot has happened and the years have gone by so quickly. But I know that for all the great moments we have shared for the past three years I do know for sure that we have many more memories to share together!
I remember the day he proposed to me like it was yesterday. We had a picnic lunch and by the time we finished it was about to storm, but he insisted that we go up to the waterfall at Tanyard Creek because I had not seen it. By the time we got there I was thinking okay I have seen it now lets go before it beings to rain on us. But little did I know that Chad had different plans. He said a few words and than proposed, I really don't remember anything as I was shocked. Girls reading you know how that feels! Once I got over being shocked and saying YES and we kissed and took a few pictures it begin to rain and rain hard! We quickly ran back to the truck and by the time we got to the truck I was wet from head to toe, but it was totally worth it! At least it is a day that I won't forget plus he proposed on April Fool's Day. Why April Fools Day, he was about to leave the country and he wanted to do it before he left. Plus I think he wanted to do it on a day that he would not forget. We spent the evening visiting our friends Kim and Brad Fisher and than we went to dinner at Copelands. What great memories...
I do have pictures of this day... but I can't find them...I will keep looking :)
6 months later we got married in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. It was my dream wedding and I had great friends and family around for my special day.

1 year later we spent our first wedding anniversey in Cancun Mexico at Adventura Spa Palace. I loved the resort and the relaxing moments I shared with Chad. I often think about all the wonderful stress free moments we shared together. We went swimming with the dolphins on that trip and we went to Tulum to see the Mayan Ruins. After that trip is when Chad and I decided that we start the journey of getting pregnant and starting our family. I never expected to experience the struggles or heartache during the journey. But no sad moments today, I am happy to be sharing my life with my loving and thoughtful husband Chad.

I would have to say that my husband is the greatest man in my life. He brings so much joy and happiness to my life. He knows when to hug me when I am sad, he knows when I need to laugh and have fun, he knows when I need time to be alone, he knows what I want and if you know him well he usually ends up getting me what I want... even when I tell me I do not need it. I can't wait to spend the next 60 plus years with Chad. I love you Chad!
