Welcome to Threesistersandus.com! I created this website to blog about my family focusing mainly on my three beautiful kids and lovely husband. Within this website i will post blogs and events which have occurred in my daily life. I hope all of you enjoy my stories and learn from my experiences. Where It All Started Our love began in a local gas station where we first meet eyes. It all spiraled from there to where we are stand today; still in love with three beautiful daughters, our fur baby who is a pit bull that you will see on the blog and our first home. But in between from when we fell in love at first sight to where we are now, we dated. Our first date ever was to the pumpkin patch. Romantic right? Hendrick (my husband now) was such a gentlemen at the time when it came time for our first kiss he was so kind to ask if it were okay to kiss me. I not so kindly replied with a no. By the third time I did say yes though.
As time went on we found out we were expecting. Of course this was more shocking and frightening news for us. Once the initial shock settled in and disappeared. We were actually excited yet still scared to become first time parents. One, we were only boyfriend and girlfriend. Two, I was still a senior in high school. Three, all the above. We went forward with our decision to have our daughter. The best decision ever in the world I could have ever made. A couple months later Hendrick had proposed. He drove us out to the beautiful Lake Michigan. Even though it was already dark there were still some people on the beach. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. A little over a year later we said our vows in the church he grew up in and that I started attending. I never imagined getting married at nineteen years old or becoming a Mother for the first time at eighteen years old. Or in fact over coming statistics of young marriages who have had a child first. But it goes to show people it can be done. As time traveled on I knew he was the one. I knew God placed both of us in that gas station for a reason. I’m an enormous believer that everything happens for a reason. That God has a plan. Some which we may not always understand. We truly fell in love at first sight in that gas station!
