Our Story...


Daniel and I met back in the 5th grade in 1998; Daniel's mother moved him from Ohio to Arizona and my family moved us from Kentucky to Arizona. We started to talk a month after starting school, and honestly hit it off (funny thing ever, our parents moved us both at the same EXACT time! August 1998). He became my best friend throughout elementary school, I could not even begin to think about not having him around, especially going into High School. Our High School years were just as amazing as ever (no we never dated, and to this day I have NO idea why we never did but for me I was to scared of ruining our friendship we had worked hard at obtaining and keeping). I always knew I felt more for Daniel, but I could not risk losing his friendship if he did not feel the same way.. little did I know...

High School was not as amazing as a lot of girls and guys make it out to be. In fact, I hated High School! I always felt like the 'odd duck' out, like no one liked me because I was not the most social and I did not dress all super girlie or anything. Again, I hated High School!! Daniel made it so much better, being able to look forward to someone I cared deeply for to be there daily, made life easier as the years progressed. However, if I did not feel comfortable telling him my feeling, I was going to lose him after High School and I had to kind of start distancing myself from that. At the end of my High School year I dropped out; I could not stand going to school anymore and I just wanted to be done with it (half a year left and I quit! Biggest mistake ever). The years went on, Daniel and I lost contact as he joined the Marine Corp and I had my son (I did get my High School Diploma successfully so I was proud of that I worked really, really hard to get it).

Daniel served his country and I was not there to support him like he supported me all those years in High School; I sort of felt like I let the only man I truly loved down (I mean at this point we had know each other almost 10 years and I never ever wanted to let him down but I did). We went separate ways, did separate things and just were not there for one another. After the Marine Corp, he served his four years and got out, he decided to apply to The Ohio State University and got in. He posted, on his FaceBook page, that he got accepted and I was stunned.... In 2009, my father rejoined the United States Army and moved us from Arizona to Kentucky; it was quite the change, but I was so ready for a change, new pace. Arizona held way too many hard memories for me and I wanted to disappear from it. Here I am on Facebook years after loosing touch and I found him. And he WAS SO CLOSE ONLY 5 HOUR DRIVE from me! Sparks flew, my stomach had butterflies just at the thought that he might still care, might remember me... So, I added him and too the risk instead of wondering 'what if'.

I was super surprised to find out he was recently divorced, out of the Marine Corp, and living so close I would taste the change. We started talking, and oh boy!! It felt like no time had ever passed between us! The sparks were so there, and hit us all around, like crazy ass ocean waves! We decided to have me and the kids move up to Ohio and to start this next journey in our life. July 2011 I moved in with Daniel, in October 2012 he proposed, and on 2-14-13 we were married. Daniel and I have talked long about if we wanted to try and have more children. Once we bought our first house together, got engaged we knew we wanted to try so we did. Now, all this time we did NOT prevent anything, if it happened it happened if it did not then we were okay with that either way. Fast forward....

We have been trying since 2012 and still have had no LUCK! Daniel has visited the Veterans Affairs for medical help with why we have not gotten pregnant and they give us no answers. This past month (March 2016) we have found an amazing doctor out here, his name is Dr. Adam Clemens, and I have to say it has been a HUGE eye opener all the stuff we have discovered and what we can do. Daniel and I can conceive it will just take longer unless we figure out what is causing this low results and how to correct it. That is why I am starting this.. TTC on my YouTube channel (this channel will be of crafts, crocheting, some cooking recipes, and TTCing). We feel super confident in this doctor and cannot believe we may actually get some answers and become pregnant this year!! After 4 years battling this infertility...will we become pregnant? (stay tuned to find out)
