Moira and Todd

How We Met

Todd and I met a little over a year ago in our current town we both live in now. Things moved fast and we soon became best friends and I fell in love so hard. On Mother’s Day we found out we were expecting which was a shock to us but we were both so excited. Our families had never met before and coincidentally we were both the youngest of Five. I have 4 older sisters and he has 4 older brothers, all similar in age and our parents have both been married for 42 years. Knowing our families meant so much to both of us we wanted them to finally meet and knew it would be a smooth transition so we decided to have a gender reveal party at my parents’ house to get everyone together.

how they asked

I was so distracted with planning the party and making sure everything was perfect. My Dad, Mom and sisters all helped make the house look beautiful for this big event. Our families hit it off and it was amazing along with some friends that came as well. It was time for the gender reveal so we all gathered in the backyard to soon find out what we were having. As we all stood in the area Todd told me he wanted to make a quick speech thanking everyone for coming out before we would shoot off our confetti cannons…what happened in the next 2 minutes completely shocked me.

Todd was down on one knee holding a beautiful ring in front of both of our families and friends and the moment seemed out of a dream. With tears running down my face I quickly embraced him and screamed YES! And then 5 minutes later we found out we were going to have a baby BOY. To say the day was filled with emotions would be an understatement. It was a day that I will never forget.
