My husband and I were so excited to welcome our 3rd child, a baby girl, on September 7, 2012. We have 2 boys (6 and 3) so this little princess was a special addition. Her birth was wonderful and we were in love with her from the start!
We were ready to leave the hospital 2 days later when a routine discharge revealed a congenital heart defect called a VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect). She was... read more >
As the details of my wedding day unfolded and decisions were being made, I began to think about and imagine what the entire day would look like. Not just the moments of the ceremony and the celebration with friends and family, but also the moments leading up to that glorious walk down the aisle.
I knew I would be surrounded by my sweetest and dearest friends during my last moments as a single wo... read more >
Blake was turning 16 and after diligently searching for a good deal within our price range, we found him a 1995 T-Top Camaro in his favorite color blue with only 37,000 original miles on the 18 year old vehicle. "Now, how do we give it to him?", was the question. Since our family loves Chick-fil-A, we conspired to meet at Chick-fil-A for dinner. There we had a Chick-fil-A team member attach the... read more >
The setting was my 12th Birthday Party in Columbia, SC circa December 1998. Picture a young girl getting ready for her birthday party. Mom was downstairs setting up the piñata, getting the tunes going on our boom box, and setting out the food and punch. The food consisted of an ice cream sundae station, chips & dip, and....(surprise Bianca!), a Chick-fil-A Nuggets Tray (maybe even two). Thanks Mom... read more >
A few years ago, I was alone on Christmas Eve for the first time. I was newly divorced and it was my son's weekend with his Dad. My daughters, both in their early 20's, were spending time with friends. I had just changed churches and didn't really know anyone there very well yet, and most of my friends were married and spending time with their families.
I had ordered a Chick-fil-A Nuggets Tray f... read more >
Each year for the last 20 years or so, my Mom would buy Chick-fil-A Nuggets Trays to serve on Christmas Eve, when we all came home from church services, and more recently on Christmas Day with our traditional meal. She raised 10 children and now has us, plus 8 spouses and 28 grandchildren. We all looked forward to knowing there would be Chick-fil-A Nuggets waiting for us when we arrived at her hou... read more >
Yesterday was an emotionally exhausting day. I woke up at 4:30am to drive 5 hours for my college roommate's cancer surgery. We spent the day praying and waiting for news and finally in the evening we found out that the surgeons were able to remove all of the cancer and that it was contained. She was cancer-free! I left Durham around 6:30pm to make the 5 hour trek back home. Because I had been so n... read more >
My husband, CW4 Bobby Dennis, was deployed to Iraq in 2004/2005. The one thing he missed the most, food wise, was Chick-fil-A. When we talked to him he would always say that when he got home that Chick-fil-A was one of the first places he wanted to eat.
He was scheduled to come home for his two week leave in November of 2004 in the afternoon. We had arranged for a surprise welcome home party f... read more >
