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.

There’s Something Beautiful Waiting For Us

The other day I had a dream about being on a hike. I was alone. It was getting darker the further in I ventured. It was hot and humid; so humid it looked almost foggy. The trees were dense. The slope was steep. There were too many twists and turns to count. The ground was […]

Our Valentine’s Day 2019

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 […]

Four Weeks of Bump Photos

I took four weeks of bump photos before we’d say goodbye to our baby. I know that sweet baby didn’t make up most of this bump, but I’m thankful I have something to remember our short time together. We were planning on sharing our news with the world this week; Valentine’s Day to be exact. […]

He never changes

When I can’t sleep, I pull out my phone and I journal as a last ditch effort to quiet my mind. I probably have hundreds of these late night (well, early morning if we’re getting technical) writing sessions. It doesn’t happen every night, just when my mind is unusually tough to settle down. The night […]

Our Loss of Baby Hinders

“I’m so sorry” the ultrasound technician said as our midwife placed her hand on my leg and Ty placed his hand on my shoulder in that dark room that was now silent. I had been pleading with Jesus the entire time the tech was moving the wand around the warm gel on my belly; talking […]

Our New Brentwood Home Mattress

I feel like such an adult because we’ve never bought a real mattress or bed frame, but here we are and we are IN LOVE. 💃 We chose Brentwood Home’s Cedar mattbecauseacuse of what it was made out of. An average person spends 1/3 of their lives on their mattress, and I’ve recently learned how toxic […]

Our Marriage

Though neither of us would ever wish to walk through the pain that we’ve walked through for the last 3 months, we are so freaking thankful for the growth that has come from it. We’ve both learned so much about compassion. Ty has lead me so well in what it looks like to show grace […]

Take the photo

I’ve been going through the thousands of photos we took in the last year (still… because it’s so dang hard) and I’ve never been more thankful than I am for my husband. He took so many images. Of me, of the babe, of me + the babe, of all three of us. He didn’t care […]

A Trip To Tulsa

We decided to crash a “local” Happy Oiler hangout and took a trip to Tulsa over the weekend. The event was so freaking cute and so freaking fun and my heart feels so full 😍 I say this all the time, but there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t feel overwhelming gratitude for […]
