Christ before us as we follow together, side-by-side. A reminder both of the Trinity, and Christ's involvement and place in our marriage.
We got to know each other on a mountain... he said I love you for the first time on a mountain... he proposed on a mountain... it was time for 👫 tattoos. .📷: @sonofliberty89 .📷 assistant: @palindromebrod .👱 who is annoyed we took this photo: @jordanrmitchell
If you ever need a dosage of inspiration, if you're life is starting to feel beyond black & white, if you feel any bit down. I recommend taking a few days to visit Aruba. The amount of color in this place wakes you up. I feel like I'm constantly walking through candy
And we're off! Some of you may know my husband is an associate pastor. 💛We met when Barry was a youth pastor and have spent the last 16 years in full time ministry. We LOVE it and we look forward to a lifetime of serving, helping and loving the body of Christ. Today is SO exciting and special for us because our church is sending us on a sabbatical. Amazing, right? Our senior pastor took one last year and now it's our turn. 🙌🏻 We are looking forward to traveling this summer, spending time with family and just enjoying a season of rest. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for a church that treats their pastors and families with so much love. It is rare and I wake up every day feeling like we hit the jackpot when we moved here. There is no other place we would rather be. 💛 I will be around here on IG this summer and of course you can reach me by email if you need anything while we are traveling. If you have questions about your subscription, please shoot me a message today so that I can make sure you are all squared away before we head out for our road trip. Cheers to an amazing summer for all of us!!!
"Fear no one.
Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed,
nor secret that will not be known.
What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light;
what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops..." Matthew 10:26-7 ➻
our Lord: a fan of things both quiet and kept, both beautiful and bold. our hugest proponent and example of a kind of Love that reveals, a kind of light that attends, a kind of whisper that echoes as a rooftop shout.
it constantly amazes me that we are completely and totally known in Christ, and yet, so often, it seems we can fail to accept this truth, for ourselves and others.
no one wants to admit when their cup is empty. no one likes to come face to face with the worst parts of themselves. we are struggling, sinning, and suffering, and the darkness is safe, right? how could we let Him see us like this, wouldn't He be disappointed?
yet He knows already what we're not proud of, he knows the fears we hide, he knows us even within the layers of our shame and guilt, and that's just as much the person He gave Himself for, as our best. we can rest in this, we can stand alongside it.
fear no one.
not even yourself.
you are equally known and loved. // photo by @rachrigler and words by @wholeheartedly.han
It's like holding a mini globe on your finger.
With the warm temps, I'm definitely wanting to find a water source to hang out at today. It's supposed to be almost 100°. And we don't have AC, but we do have a very poorly insulated house. Yay!... 🙁
In other exciting news, I finally spotted the black bear that's been making herself known in our neighborhood. 🐻
10:00PM seems to be her preferred time for dinner, and she proved that once again last night. I'll just have to make sure all the kitties are in the house before then! 😂
Pink salad on repeat because millennial. 🙋🏻 Ok, I'm technically on the razor edge, almost of Gen X but not quite. I'll be 34 in a couple of weeks or something. Born 1983, the year Return of the Jedi came out, which matters. A lot of people ask me how I got started blogging—honestly as long as I've had internet access I've had some sort of website. My first was when I was 13 years old. I taught myself HTML and made—you guessed it—a Star Wars fan page. This was back when you could basically know everyone else in the online Star Wars community in an HTML chat room on a platform called "Chatterbox". Back when you never used your real name because you'd ostensibly get yourself into a "To Catch a Predator" scenario and asked a/s/l in chat rooms. I was also a long time WoW player, since vanilla. It sounds weird to say, but the internet has been home for a long time. Maybe it's because I'm an introvert and most articulate when I can write. Or just because I'm a nerd. But either way, thanks internet. You're alright. Here's a pink salad. ✌🏻
Why do all good weekends have to come an end?! 😭 it's been pure bliss for us these last two days and I'm sad to see the end of it. Family time as a three is so precious to us at the moment that we're soaking up every minute of it not to mention the treats this one's getting recently! Yes, a Nutella pastry is what WAS on that plate 🐷 didn't last long though! Besides the coffee and cake stops, we wandered beaches, threw pebbles in the sea, fooled around in the garden and played at the park. Now Fergus is all wiped out! Well roll on next weekend, when it'll be the three of us against the 🌎 again. Hope you all had a good one! ✨
I wish I could tell you that I came up with this #mealprepsunday 🍓🥒 on my own, but it is 100% copied from @drewbarrymore 's Instagram posts from what she packed her kid's camp lunch this week, and I am 0% embarrassed by it. 💁🏼#adultlunchable
So excited to release this collab with @get_glow into the big wide world 🎆 @juliaevetobin came up with some beautiful content and I handled the tech side - together we brought Jules' vision to life with Unlock Your Glow! 🔐💖 We have created this programme to unite women from all over the world and to embark on a collective mission- to feel fabulous about themselves and to share their GLOW with the world! 💫
There has never been a more crucial time for us to step into our power and be the change we wish to see in the world. The world is thirsting for our womanly wisdom, our nurturing spirits and our innate kindness and compassion. As the Dalai Lama famously said "The world will be saved by the western woman", we are here right now with a special mission to fulfil. ✨
Over the course of the 30 day programme we'll send daily emails to ladies wishing to revive their body, mind and spirit and glow brighter than ever before! The emails will be jam packed with tips, tools and fun exercises and we'll be having lots of fun along the way! 💖
To celebrate the launch, we have a fabulous FREEBIE to give away - The Glow-ometer Quiz - designed to check your glow levels and help you get clear on how to shine brighter than ever before! 🌟
To take the quiz or to get more info on the 30 day programme, click on the link in my bio 👆🏻 Also a big thanks to everybody that has already shown their support 💖
It’s Sunday and that means you can have a big ass #smoothiebowl for lunch if you want to. I had breakfast at 6AM before teaching my @flywheelsportsclass of the day and i was craving something sweet for lunch. Here’s what i put in it: -Smoothie: Fig, Nectarine, Pineapple, Blueberries, Banana, Strawberries, Spinach, Greek Yogurt
-Toppings: Goji Berries, Granola, Chia Seeds, Nectarine, Fig
Now i definitely feel energized to clean the rest of my house and get everything ready for the week.
I've known this pretty momma to be since 6th grade (or 2001 if ya really want to date me 😂) we weren't always friends, in fact there was a time I can remember her making fun of my candy cane striped hair in 7th grade 😂😂 but somehow thru school & cheerleading we became the best of friends & despite everything life has thrown our way we've never lost touch. It's a surreal moment to capture her maternity photos and reminisce on all that we have experienced together over the past 16 years (from honors & AP classes, cheerleading competitions, beach trips, boys, maid of honor duties etc)! Friendships like these are rare & I'll forever be grateful that I have a friend like Kelsey to experience all of life's smallest & biggest moments. Now I'm counting down the days until we all get to meet baby Em!!!!
I was so happy with how the simple set of fabric spools for @hellosunshinehomedecor turned out, I decided I should make some more. This rainbow fruit themed set is up for grabs now! Display the entire set as is, or you can use individual spools for photo props and a touch of color in different rooms of the house. 🌈 $10.50 plus shipping for the set.
LOVE // This logo and it's corresponding branding didn't make the cut with a client, a first as I really backed this one and still think it is the most beautiful fit that ticked all the boxes of the brief 😍 so, I am 100% going to repurpose it so it doesn't go to waste!
If you would like a premade logo with your details added in to this concept, and have a coaching (or any business) and this style appeals to you, please get in touch! I'd love to do a deal, just to give this wee design a second chance 😊
It's all about the details on your Wedding Day! How pretty is this floral accent to dress up your chairs at the reception? Creative Producer: @ashleypigottevents Floral Design: @nousdesigngroup Chair: @simplybeautifuldecor Venue: @graydonhall_couturecuisine
