Hello to all the other Lucky to be in love brides!!! My name is Mary and I currently live in Chattanooga, TN with my husband Alex and our 3 year old son Caleb. We were previously living in Knoxville up until September when my DH got a new job here in Chattanooga. I lucked up on a job at a Insurance Brokerage firm, and absolutely love it! I am currently from Chattanooga, and so glad to be back.
Alex and I have known each other for about 7 years. We both went to college at ETSU but never really thought of each other like that. Then 2 years ago, I picked up the phone and we never put it down. We moved in together about 3 months later and got engaged March 27, 2009. We are not the "take your time" kind of people. But we love each other more then anything and can't wait to be together formally!
My son, Caleb turned 3 in October.. and let me say the things that he has taught me! HA HA.. Hes the most interesting, loving, all-about town little thing I have ever met. Hes the light of my eye, and everyday I thank the lord for him. We just put him in Daycare for the 1st time in October and its AMAZING!!
Such an exciting time in my life as well as everyone elses.. We got married August 29,2009 in Watersound, FL. Our ceremony was on the beach.. of course barefoot and then our reception was up on the grass right off the beach. This location had such a huge importance to us.. and we were so fortunate to be able to share it with everyone on our wedding day!
On May 19, 2010, Alex legally adopted Caleb! Wow! what a day that was! Talk about emotions coming out the wazoo.. It was a beautiful day :)
We are currently in the process of getting on our feet and figuring out our "routine". We have started to discuss the idea of having another baby in May 2010. If there was one thing I learned from my first pregnancy would be that I do not want to be pregnant in the summer. ha ha
