Jillian and Sammy

imageHow We Met: Sammy and I met at work a few years before we started dating.  He actually went to high school with my sister and I was basically just her little sister to him.  I left that job and a couple years later decided to go back.  Sammy was still working there at the time.  We started to hang out and spend a lot of time together and the rest is history. 

How He Asked: Sammy and I were dating almost two years when we found out we had a little surprise coming.  We talked one day and agreed to get married and just go to the court house before our little Grace arrived in March.  We didn’t want to make a big deal out of it at all.  After a girls dinner with some friends I came home to Sammy sitting anxiously on the couch with a huge grin on his face.  I immediately was suspicious.  He said he had something for me and just could not wait. He got down on one need and pulled out a box.  Due to my insanely high hormone levels he didn’t even get the opportunity to ask me, or say anything, because I was sobbing so hard.

He put the most beautiful ring on my swollen finger and just hugged me until I could stop crying. (Which was about 5 minutes). We decided to have a small ceremony on Valentine’s day with just our family so I could have the intimate wedding I’ve always wanted.  However, Grace had other plans. On February 13 do to complications I went into labor.  At 245 am on February 14, 2015 I gave birth to the most beautiful little girl.  And because I am stubborn as can be I was not going to miss my wedding.  Sammy and I got married that same afternoon in the labor and delivery ward of the hospital.  We had all of our close families, and a brand new flower girl.
