SHE'S GETTING MARRIED....


last night at WICKED. He took her to see her FAVORITE show.
Even though they were planning the wedding already she was
officially proposed to yesterday.

This past week, Taylor celebrated her 24th birthday. She is my oldest daughter... and my firstborn. I was only 19 years old when I got married to her father. I look back now and realize what a baby I was. Taylor did the exact same thing. Many of you know that she got married at 19 and was married for three years. Unfortunately, it did not work out. It was the hardest time ever for me.
As her mother, it killed me to see her cry and beat her self up every single day for making such a mistake. She could not forgive herself for not "listening" to her heart and others who tried to guide her differently.  I would give her advice all the time and let her know that our "mistakes" do not DEFINE us, but REFINE
us. We can learn and grow so much from those mistakes. I do believe we are stronger from our trials.
LIFE LESSONS
give us the opportunity to gain wisdom.

She met Travis and she had been single and dating (a lot). She never made a connection and she often worried she was
not ever going to find someone that she was "not just settling" with. Taylor has a HUGE list of what she really
valued and wanted in someone.

She found this in Travis.
Now know this... 
Taylor is not perfect.
Travis is not either.

He has been married before and he has 
the sweetest ten year old son, Jaxon.
I admired so much that Taylor
and Travis both are 
"realistic" and committed to making this work.

They actually have been planning their marriage for months.
They wanted to wait for McKay to come home from her mission.
They felt with Ty's hospitalization and the craziness
going on in our family right now, that they would 
get married in....

September...

September 19th 2014


It was hard because Taylor wanted to please everyone and in the end, they are choosing to do a very simple day
with only their family and closest of friends.

I am so happy for both of them. I
am so thankful she is so happy
again. I am so happy for
Travis and Jaxon too.

It's a HAPPY DAY!!!!!

This is a great post Teresa, thank you. Thank you also for excepting my son into your family. For seeing him for who he really is and what they can be as a couple. I am overjoyed that Travis is becoming a member of your family, a family who is so close net and strong, who loves each other and support each other. I can't wait to meet you and the rest of Taylor's family.

now there's two guys who locked out! not only do they get Taylor but they get you, too. I distinctly remember you telling me about the man in April and I'm so happy for Taylor. I hope you will have an anime day and that Ty will be up for a great party by then.
