As much as I cannot wait to dive into Spring clothes, continue Spring Cleaning and leave all the cold, dark days of winter behind, it is still February. It is still dark…and unfortunately, still pretty cold. While I’m not eating sugar (or bread, for that matter) for the month of March, if I could cheat and eat anything right now to get me through to bright warm days, it would 100% be a muffin.
“Spring is here, the-e-ee sky is blue, oooh, birds all sing as if they knew…” If you don’t know that song, PLEASE comment and let me know so I can change your world!
This Valentines Day was such a sweet one for us. Every year that O and I have known each other, we’ve split Valentines Day. So I would celebrate my love for him all day the 14th and he would do the same vice-versa on the 15th for me.
I’m so thankful to have had such a beautiful portrait of marriage to look up to my entire life. My parents are the ooey gooey type, dancing to Marvin Gaye in the kitchen and keeping their regular date night- but they also portrayed what marital conflict looked like and what inviting God to be that “third strand” really meant. I knew from such a young age that marriage took work, but also that marriage was a union I so looked forward to spending my life being sanctified through. I foolishly thought taking mental notes from my parents marriage would give me a leg up on the whole ‘marital struggle’ thing. Then I got marriage and my mental notes all mocked me and the joke was on me because turns out, no two marriages are alike. Who knew! 7 years into oneness with my husband, I’m more aware than ever that I need the grace, leading and example of Christ to help me love my guy the way he intended. I’ve also made it my job to be a student of marriage for the rest of my days. Here are the 7 resources that have shaped and molded our marriage.
Do you ever come across a bunch of photos on your Camera Roll that don’t necessarily need to be shared on your social media, don’t make a blog post but are definitely worthy of sharing? Here are links to some recent things I’ve worn, seen, eaten or enjoyed in the past couple weeks…straight from my iPhone camera roll.
