On October 4, 2008, Rudy and I were married and became a family. Our wedding was held my hometown in Lynchburg, Virginia. The ceremony was traditional - the church, minister, large bridal party, etc. But that made it special to us. I love that we said the same vows that our parents said to each other. I love that I was married in the church I had my baptism, confirmation and youth Sundays.
We sung my favorite hymn, Be Thou My Vision, and had all of our friends and family with us. The reception was held at my parents house with a big tent in the front yard. It was a blast - lots of dancing and merry making under the stars.
On September 13, 2011 we welcomed Reed Baldwin Hayden to the family. We were overjoyed to have such a healthy and happy baby boy in our lives. He continues to be a blessing everyday!
