Our Story


Welcome to Our Forever
Just to give you a little background of how our little family began...
While in college, I worked 3 jobs. My main 2 jobs were a gymnastics teacher, receptionist at a gym, I also cleaned 3 houses. I am sure you can guess which job I met this man....



The gym...
 I worked at the gym for about 3 years. Lee came to workout on a daily basis, usually after work.  
*Side note,  Lee looked familiar the first time I saw him because about 4 years prior, he went to the same church as me. We never really spoke, I just remembered his face... just a fun fact.*

Anyway, he came into the gym like clockwork. I was currently in a serious relationship and honestly wasn't interested in anyone but my high school sweetheart. Also, Lee being older, the thought of us being together never really crossed my mind. He would ask for protein shakes, we had a few conversations here and there, he was always SUPER nice, and he wasn't too bad in the looks department either ;).

I tried to set him up with three different girls. Nothing too serious, just showed him pictures of some girls I went to college with, asked him if he thought they were pretty, I spoke with one friend and told her all about him. Thank the good LORD he had me in mind the whole time. ;) Pretty crazy thinking about that now!

Lee and I went on our first date in March and we got engaged  7 short months later on October 17th, 2009. He proposed at the alter of a little white church in Cades Cove while vacationing in Gatlinburg

♥ How it should be
I was busy with school and began my last semester of school, which was student teaching. We had a lot going on so we were engaged for 1 year...

 We got married on November 20th, 2010.
It was a perfect day and we were blessed with absolutely beautiful weather.

Five short months later, we began building our first home...

(You can see more of that journey HERE
And four short months after moving into our new home we found out we were expecting our first bundle of joy!  In March we revealed we would welcome a precious baby boy and on August 24th, 2012 this little man changed our lives forever...

As you can see, we do not waste any time in The Pody Family, so join us on our journey of FOREVER!
