we aren't here today...

Photobucket

I am over at Take Heart sharing my love story.


So, if you want to hear all about how I met and fell in love with my wonderful hubby, come visit me at Take Heart. And Danielle just had a sweet baby girl...so you can get your baby fix and tell her congrats while you are over there.

And Joel and Levi are on the U.S. Grains Council website.


They didn't write any guest posts, but their cute picture is on the rotating header on the homepage. See them? Joel is in the red shirt and Levi is "driving" the tractor. I just had to brag on them a little...since I am guessing most of you won't be visiting the U.S. Grains Council website anytime soon. :)

Oh...I guess Griffin is here today. He is not allowed to make any guest appearances until he starts sleeping through the night. :)

The caption with Griffin's picture made me laugh. But, I do hope you get a full night of sleep very soon. :)

I just read your story and I wondered if Joel went to PCC that first year of college? We have several students there from our church this year. Thanks for sharing your story. :)

So nice to read more about your story. Yet again I'm shocked at how much I have in common with you even though we've never met. Same graduation year, same marriage year - we just celebrated our tenth a couple weeks ago, two boys (with very similar ages), etc. Went and visited Erin Hutton last weekend - drove past your area on the way to Wichita and gave a little wave to you and the boys as I passed! Thanks for sharing your love story! Enjoyable read as always.

Jess, when I am praying for a husband I am asking for someone like your hubby or Tim Tebow. Hope Joel takes that as a compliment!

Loved reading this and remembering all those early chapters of your love story. :) I especially liked the picture in our old dorm room (hehe--too bad the Anne Geddes posters weren't up yet). And the one of you and Joel at my wedding is pretty sweet. You two are a special couple and a blessing!

Jess, I loved reading your story. I've followed your blog for a long time but I'm not sure I've ever commented. Anyway, you are such an inspiration to me. We live in Pensacola, FL and this whole time I've been following you, I never had any idea Joel went to college here for a year. Pensacola is a long way from Kansas and was quite a change for him, I'm sure. Your story is so sweet--thanks for sharing.

Hi there - I'm just a regular (for a looonngg time) reader.. no one fancy. :) But I did want to say I smile and laugh every time I see Levi's birthday pictures rotating around Pinterest! I always say "Hey, I "know" him!!". It is funny how things get around!
