This just in from Alicia W. of Clifton, TX. Congrats!
I went into your site almost 3 years ago more as joke than looking for "the one". I lived in texas and one day after logging on I saw a guy had "viewed" my profile. I believe I specifically told my coworker he was "pretty" but lived in Colorado. After a few days of us viewing each other back and forth he messaged me! He explained how he thought it was odd that i had shown up in his suggeated matches because he had set his distance to only women within 100 miles of himself. Must have been our good lord working his magic. We quickly exchanged phone numbers and within 2 weeks of talking to each other I made the 16 hour drive to Colorado to meet him on the weekend before Halloween. We had a wonderful weekend together and in typical cowboy fashion after a day at a "punkin chunkin" and tractor pull we made our way to a bar where his grandmother worked as the bartender. (Coolest lady I've known) Her and I instantly hit it off while he played pool. A little slow dancing and we went back to where we were staying for the weekend. The next morning we woke up early and polished our weekend off with a day spent on the mountain looking for 2 pairs they had missed the weekend before. I left the next morning and expected it to not go much of anywhere. The distance was just too great. He moved in with me on November 1, 2013. We had a very fast courtship and had a lot of fun together being a young new couple. On February 7th 2014 we said our vows in front of a few close friends and family in a court house in texas and exactly 2 weeks later found out we were expecting our first child. In september 2014 we welcomed our son and in september 2016 we will celebrate the birth of our second child, a daughter, and shortly after in Feb 2017 we will celebrate 3 years of marriage. He may drive me crazy some days, but I'll forever be thankful when I hear that funny jingle on the TV. And when my friends poke fun of it ill just smile knowing i have what theyre looking for. Because without it, I would have never met my soulmate.
Is about like getting married. It never seems there is a good time!
My husband and I have been married for four years as of last Thursday. Our daughter has blessed with her presence for 18 months.
I remember being pregnant with her two harvests ago. I spent my Fall in the grain cart out in the field. Sick, very sick. I had a pretty rough pregnancy, but it was so worth it.
And it didn't really go as planned. Ideally we had aimed for having a baby right at the end of November or May. This gets us through harvest and through planting seasons.
I will say that babies never come as planned, but I know that I am really glad we didn't have our daughter smack in the middle of harvest, because then I would have had a husband that would have been distracted I think. Especially since we were at the hospital nearly a week!
It just so happens that the day we were admitted into the hospital it started raining, and raining and raining. It rained so much we in fact had to replant some fields that Spring.
The day we got home from the hospital I remember my husband helping me into the house. Laying our little girl in my lap, kissing my cheek, and saying he will be home soon.
He then spent the rest of the afternoon and early evening feeding cattle and working on various projects. Work on a farm is never done, even if you do have a baby.
I remember sitting on our couch watching the sun go down, debating whether I should wake up our pretty little girl to eat or let her sleep. And being just a tiny bit sad that my husband wasn't here to discuss it with me.
But, I will say he was as supportive as he could be every night when he did come home and we also worked a pretty great routine out for the night shifts. He wanted to be a part of every moment and I love that. He was just as passionate about being a Daddy as being my Farmer.
I love watching my farmer with our daughter on the farm. It is one of her favorite things to do- go with Daddy. She loves all things farm, tractor, and cow.
You can't help but feel her joy for agriculture as she sees and learns everything for the first time. It is a nice reminder of the beauties of our industry.
