our story

we met in college in 2005. we started dating then, too. love came quickly and how fun it was.

in september of 2006, on his way to work to earn money for a ring, ian's car slammed under an SUV. along with part of his brain, it took the plans that we had made. and left us with a brain injury.

but then came eight twenty eight.

"and we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

God held us.

ian's dad, steve, was a regular writer on the blog after the accident, along with me, larissa. then on october 8, 2009, steve met God after a six-week battle with brain cancer.

steve's birthday is eight twenty eight. our wedding day is eight twenty eight, made official four years after the accident.

we write this blog because we love each other and we love God.

"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39
