Matt and I were introduced in August 2008 through a mutual friend at Poppe's Martini Bar in Bellingham. While I was enjoying what I thought was going to be a girls night out, Matt made a surprise appearance. Instantly, he made me laugh and a quick friendship developed. Initially I was very hesitant to start a relationship being a single mom, full time student and living with my parents. However, through the right mixture of patience and perseverence Matt was eventually able to convince me to give it a chance ;) Thank God!!
After several more meetings and lots more laughter Matt was introduced to my daughter Emma whom he instantly fell in love with. Although it took some time and effort to blend lifestyles, soon the three of us knew we wanted to become a family and decided to live under one roof. Emma and I moved into Matt's home in Fairhaven just after Christmas 2010.
Just a few months later Matt and I discovered that we would soon be adding another member to our family. Quickly we realized our growing family needed a little more space. We were extremely lucky to be able to purchase a beautiful new home in a perfect neighborhood in July 2011.
In October of 2011, Jack Henry Fleming was welcomed into our lives. We would all agree that Jack is the final piece of the puzzle making our family complete.
Matt and I still can't believe our incredible good fortune! We truly feel like two of the luckiest people on Earth to have found such happiness and can't wait to celebrate and share our joy with all of you!
