Our Story

Our Story in point form

  • We met on an online dating service
  • Our 1st date was supposed to be the end of October 2006, but he stood me up! (he lived 4 hours away and they had a freak crazy snow storm that wiped out power & snowed him in, of course I thought he was bullshitting me, until I checked out the weather in the Niagara region...)
  • After our 2nd date, I felt maybe he was "too nice" and was going end things but my girlfriend told me where too go, and suggested (yelled at me) to give him a shot...FINE!
  • I played hard to get...he would drive 4 hours to see me (and spend the weekend down here with friends)  and after our friday night date I would tell him I had other plans for the weekend...(my plans included drinking coffee and playing Animal Crossing at my friends house....don't ask)
  • I finally gave in, and fell hard!
  • He worked out in the bush in Manitoba 3-4wks out 1-2 wks home
  • In March 2007 he sold his house and moved in with me
  • In July 2007 he proposed 
  • In November 2007 we bought our house
  • In December 2007 I became pregnant for Noah
  • In March 2008 he started a new job an hour away, which meant for the most part, he was home every night...
  • The end of August 2008 I was stressing because I was an emotional, hormonal, large pregnant lady ready to pop....and my husband was working out in the bush for the month available mostly by satellite phone 
  • September 13 2008 Noah arrived after over 26hrs of labour and 2 Epidurals & a top up along with a spinal then an emergency C-Section (and yes Clay was there!)
  • August 2009 I became pregnant again.....
  • August 2009 I travelled with a 11 month old & Clay out into the bush (no cell/internet service...Crazy!!!!) with our trailer...so we could spend time together while he was fixing helicopters (what was I thinking???) no seriously, other than the mosquitos, black flies, deer flies, bear outside our trailer one night we had fun!
  • September 4 2009 - We got married at City Hall and then had a backyard BBQ reception the next day! 
  • October 2009 We went on our honeymoon! We rented a log house in Tennessee, and brought our parents, and my brothers!
  • April 20 2010 - we welcomed Liam to the world with another C-Section
Fast Forward to today......we have lived a crazy life these past several years, but let me tell you......I wouldn't change a thing!  I love Clay with all my heart & soul.....We have had our ups & downs....we are both stubborn & independent & strong willed.....but that's why it works! He  loves me, everything about me,  he is generous, kind hearted, a loving father, he is a good provider, and passionate about everything that he does.  I could not imagine a life without him......I love him with all my heart!
