My name is Amy Serene Bishop. When I was 26 years old, I moved to Madison, Wisconsin for my first big job as a journalist. While grabbing a drink at my favorite local coffee shop, I met a very cute guy named August Flint Patrick. He was 28 years old and worked as a chef in a popular restaurant. We hit it off and soon started dating.
After two years of dating, he proposed! We honeymooned in Santorini, Greece for two weeks and returned home to find that I was expecting!
Nine months later, I gave birth to a baby girl, who we named Louisa Mabel Patrick.
Two years later, Augie and I were enjoying life with a toddler when I discovered I was expecting again! We had another girl, and named her Margaret Ella Patrick.
Three years after Margaret was born, we found out I was pregnant - with twins! I found out I was expecting two boys, who we named Oscar Finnian Patrick and Andrew Gregory Patrick.
Five years after the twins were born, we were surprised to find out we were expecting our fifth child. I gave birth to a girl and named her Cecily Carmen Patrick.
Five years after Cecily was born, the kids begged us to let them get a pet. Augie and I talked it over and agreed that it would be a good idea. We adopted a Cairn terrier named Kenzie.
