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.

Keepin’ up with the cozy because… well… winter. Is there another option?! A silk button-up is like butter on the bod, doesn’t that sound like something you want to get in on?! This silk navy blue button-up has swiftly taken a top 5 spot in my wardrobe! I’ve had so much fun styling it! Later this month I’ll post another fun way it can be worn into spring! (Yeah, I’m getting that ball rolling soon! – Lord bring on the warmth!).

Heart moment here my friends… Today I was listening to music and Lauren Daigle made the line up, if you haven’t heard the ‘Deluxe Edition of How Can It Be’, then do your heart a favor and listen to it! That song gets me every single time. Do you know what it does to your spirit to really connect with the God that rights your wrongs, breaks your chains, makes you free, gave his son for you?! I’ve known this God my whole life and I’m still being constantly reminded that I’m enough, that He sees my value in every moment, especially the moments that I don’t. That He’s always ready to offer freedom from feeling inadequate or unworthy and replace it with belonging & bravery. This little journey I’m on holds a TON of unknowns! But I’m certain that He has a plan for my life and I’m excited to walk it out!

This one’s on the heart heavy lately,
