What is NEXT? | Business + Personal

We make our big announcement next week and we thought it would be fun to travel back through our timeline with you. We have been on a wild adventure the last 10 years. Looking back through these photos it is kind of crazy to see how life has twisted and turned for us. Our next big adventure might be the quickest turn we have ever made. We were traveling through life and not expecting a BIG change but somehow this was just meant to happen. Before we go through the past let me clarify what the big announcement is NOT.

It is not the following:

1. pregnant

2. adopting

3. moving out of state

There is a solid hint for you! 😀

We met at Moments with Majesty Christian Bookstore in Columbus, OH. Andrew was in college and I was a junior in high school. This was one of our first pictures together in May of 2006.
