Blog : married

12 years of lovin, learning, growing, overcoming & celebrating life together! I’m humbled and grateful to my core that I get to adventure through this life with Scott! It’s crazy what you can overcome when you choose not to blame each other for hard stuff or hold hurtful moments against each other… but also admit when you’re wrong and do the hard work to become the best spouse you can be. We are far from perfect but I can proudly say that we’ve chosen to love, forgive & grow together through things that could have destroyed us. We’ve celebrated births and cried together over losing 3 babies, we’ve lost jobs and gotten raises, struggled to get by & bought a house, we’ve moved across the country twice, we’ve had fights & prayed through them and we have relentlessly loved each other and daily decide that together & happy is all that we want! Happy 12th anniversary @scottjfitzpatrick You’re my favorite human in all the world!.

We’ve done it!! Eleven years!! Honestly, This guy deserves so much more than an Instagram highlight shout out, he deserve my time and attention. He deserves quiet nights in with my phone turned off and my heart & mind wildly connected to his. He deserves to see me and know me in all of my forms and to be honored for the vast sacrifices he has made to help our family flourish! He protects me physically, mentally, emotionally & invests in my spirit. He challenges me to see my own strengths, to really understand & identify them so that my confidence grows. He guards my mind and remains faithful & transparent. He and I really are better together, but we’ve had so many opportunities to cave and throw in the towel – haven’t we all?! We’ve had to work through some (very) hard situations, we’ve fought & the couch gained a body for the night. We’ve had upsets and disagreements with the best of them but he STILL chooses to love me & hear me. He’s my ultimate person, the one who tells me every day how beautiful I am. I’m grateful and humbled that he is mine. 📷 @kaleighdsimmonsphoto

I’ll love you forever. Tomorrow I’m 32 years old & 8 days later we cheers to ELEVEN years as Mr. & Mrs. ✨
When I reflect on my life so far I’m humbled that I’ve been so fortunate. Life is messy, it’s hard & full of exhausting battles BUT battles can be won, messes can be cleaned up and hard things take work but get easier with time, understanding and patience. I’m so loved, I’ve never doubted that for a moment in my life – that’s something I have never taken for granted. As I get older I really understand that love offers a safe place – for you, for the refugee, for the abused & broken. A place where we are reminded that we are worthy of being loved. We get broken in relationship but we can also heal in relationship where love is pure. I have learned that love DOES – love isn’t silent, it doesn’t see a hurting person & turn away. Love believes the best, it makes a way for broken people, it offers hope. Pure love has the power to rebuild our brokenness. The way Scott loves me is something he chose to do, he chose to be intuitive & aware of my heart and love me in a way that I’m grateful for every single day.
