It All Started With The Cows

At the age of 15 you never expect to meet the love of your life.  But I did.  I was introduced to JJ by a couple of friends at the fall Alfalfa County Livestocks.  Only in Oklahoma do you meet your future husband at a livestock show.  We talked back and forth between friends for a few months.  FINALLY, he called me himself.  We had our first date in December of 1997 and the rest is history. 

Here we are now getting ready to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary (March 15th).  I can't believe we have been married 8 years already.  It seems unreal.  Together we have two beautiful children, Natalee and Hesston.  I couldn't ask for anything more.  He is a loving husband, wonderful father, and great friend.  He puts up with my craziness and my love for crafts and cooking. I am looking forward to the next 8, 18, 28 and even 38 years with him. 

And to think, it all started with the cows.
