I created this space as a place for me to share these loves and passions of mine; what makes my heart beat and colors my days alive. My hope is that this blog is filled with the realness, the rawness, the beautiful, the heart stirring, gut aching, shakey nervousness, slow and pensive, wild and thriving thoughts and moments of LIFE.
15 years ago we went on a Valentine’s Day date to the Southern Hills mall to watch Big Fish. We held hands. We walked around the mall and Ty bought me a heart shaped necklace with a diamond in it from Helzberg.
15 years later for Valentine’s Day we went on a day date for sushi and Yaki Soba. We went to Target and took a nap after lunch and Ty cooked steak for dinner. We were going to announce our pregnancy on Valentine’s Day. I should have been just about 12 weeks along and I was so looking forward to celebrating that baby with the world.
We’ve walked through a lot of life together. And we are currently walking through immense loss and suffering together. There’s no one else in the world who feels the exact same pain as I do. And though it’s not what most people say they’re thankful for on their Valentines posts, I am. I hate that we are in the midst of all the hurt, but I’m thankful we are in it together.
I pray for a redemption story during the season ahead of us. And while we wait for that redemption, I pray that we learn even more about patience, about trust, about compassion, about solely relying on Him, about loving each other well. ♥️
