In 2000, a song came out called "There Is No Arizona" and I remember, as a teen, seeing @jamieonealofficial with her puckery lip gloss and wild hair sing her heart out in that video. I must have heard this song a hundred times but I never REALLY listened to the lyrics until today. ...and I cried. Bc it's so honest and well-written and I've lived more life and I get it now. Thank God that there IS a Nashville-a North Carolina- whatever your city may be. There is hope for our broken hearts but sometimes, it takes a great song to express just how broken we are in a moment. And over time-if you'll trust the process-broken hearts mend, y'all! 🙌🔥💋❤️
Sometimes it feels like life is giving you misfortune. But then impeccably timed events happen and that is exactly the reason you'll hardly ever hear me complain when I'm in a tough spot. This week I sliced my finger open, it was my little reminder to say hey katelyn, take a break and chill for a minute. And like yesterday, if I had not been sick, I would have left town last night and not have walked out of my house this morning to load up my car the exact second a car hit this little guy.
I watched two cars go by and almost smash him before I could get to him. I knew something was wrong when he didn't flinch, but I tested his legs and had him crawl up on my hat. I brought him to higher ground away from predators. And though I had to leave town I'm thinking and hoping he's okay and will be gone when I get back. Except kinda hope he's still there because he's the cutest and softest little birdy that I ever did see 😍🤗. If anyone wants to check on him or give him a worm for me, please do 😅💙.
You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.
And when two lovers woo
They still say, "I love you."
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.

Today marks one year since we met face to face after 10 months long distance. In that year we’ve already gone through so much together.
We’ve experienced the grief of loss, and finding comfort in our love and God’s hope; we’ve shared in the joy and celebration of God uniting us in marriage; We’ve had many uncertain times of change, finances and job transitions; and through it all God has sustained us and reminded us of what is important in life - LOVE and GRACE.
And however long God gives us together we’ll make the most of each moment, especially the challenging ones because those are the times that draw us closer to God and to each other 💚🙏🏼❤️💯
Back in Unawatuna where the "sunset season" just started. More & more tourists find their way to this "secret" sunset spot. However the atmosphere is still special. You kinda feel connected to all the other sunset-hunters while sitting there in complete silence waiting for the sun to set.
Timing is everything✔. Timing is key🔑. Embrace the journey if life...the ups⬆ and downs⬇. When I sit and reflect on how I got to this point, I just smile in amazement and look forward on what's to come 🙌🙌🙌
I caught the flying piece of wood with my chin. Funny thing though, I wasn't the one turning the piece of wood on the lathe when it let go... It was strickly bad timing on my part. My nephew was turning a piece of olive wood when as i walked by there was a strange sound I looked over and that piece of olive was flying towards my face and it struck me on my chin. I didn't even know I was cut. I just grabbed my chin and rubbed it and thought, man that hurt.
We were standing there my nephew picked up the piece of wood and we were looking it over to see why it let go. We saw saw some red on the wood that previously wasn't there. At that same moment my brother in law said, yup you're bleeding, your gonna drip. Needless to say I was a bit shocked.
So we debated stitches or super glue, went to the urgent care they said glue it, I said ok, I will save my self some time and money, I came home and my sister in law and wife got out the medical supplies and did a bang up job.... 👍😉 also first day of vacation hangen with family. It just doesn't get any better than this. By the way this is the before pic.....
