Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time, in 1985, there lived a cute baby girl named Meredith.
There was also an adorable baby boy named Russell.
Meredith lived in Camden with her Mama and Daddy. Russell lived in Magnolia with his Mom and Dad.

Nineteen years later, Meredith and Russell met on a blind date, had dinner and went to see the movie, Sahara.
They fell in love very quickly, went on a few adventures that Summer of 2005. Meredith and  Russell went to college together at Southern Arkansas University. The couple knew that they would get married someday.

A few years later, in September of 2007, Russell and Meredith married. They had a beautiful, romantic, and traditional wedding at the church where Meredith grew up.

The couple traveled to Walt Disney World for their honeymoon. They even met Mickey and Minnie Mouse! It was such fun!

They moved to Northwest Arkansas and lived in an adorable apartment, perfect for two.

A few months later, they went on a fabulous and memorable family vacation to the beach. It was amazing to spend much needed time together.

In October 2008, the couple bought the perfect house to have a cute little puppy, but most of all, to raise a family in. They loved living there and it didn’t take Russell and Meredith very long to start new traditions and share memories there.

In November 2008, the couple got a new member of the family, a dog! They named her Belle Diana Price. Belle was instantly loved from the moment they met her.

Throughout Russell and Meredith’s marriage, they prayed so much that the Lord would bless them with a baby. They yearned to be parents someday and trusted in the Lord’s timing. They both had strong faith that God would answer their prayer.

On August 31, 2013, Meredith and Russell realized their dream had come true!


We are going to have a baby!
We are absolutely thrilled and thankful to God for blessing us! More details to come!
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
