Welcome to Our Story

Hello! Our names are Rachel and Joe and this is our story. First we want to thank you for stopping by. Our goal here is to get our story out as much as possible in hopes that we will find the piece of our heart that is out there just waiting for us. We want you to know the story of us. How we met and how we ended up where we are today.  Joe grew up in Kentucky until his family moved to Tennessee when he was 10. I (Rachel) was born and raised here in Georgia. We met in 2010 after I vacationed with my family in Pigeon Forge, TN. During the trip we ran into his older brother who then suggested Joe look me up. It turned out our families knew each other when we were very small. Neither of us remembered that but we started talking and then started dating in May of 2011. We were instantly best friends. We spent every night talking on the phone and every weekend possible together. After dating 8 months Joe asked me to marry him. I couldn’t say yes fast enough. We were married in April of 2012. We lived in Tennessee the first two years close to his family before moving to Georgia to be close to mine. During this time we’ve went through a lot. At the age of 21 I had to undergo a hysterectomy after many failed attempts of getting pregnant through infertility treatments. It was by far the hardest decision we have ever made as we both come from large, close knit families and have dreamed of having our own.  This page is dedicated to that journey and the fulfillment of that dream. Please share our story and follow along on our journey through our blog.
