Happy Anniversary – 3 magical years

Happy-Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to the love of my life.

Today my husband, Ryan and I are celebrating 3 years of being married. We have been dating for almost 11 years though! Woah. Time really does fly by! You hear adults say it when you are younger, but you don’t really pay attention since at that time it seems like time crawls by at the speed of a turtle. However, it’s true what they say! TIME FLIES! It really does feel like not long ago we were walking the halls of our high school hand in hand. At that time I had no idea where our lives would take us and that we would be on such an incredible journey together.

YAY to new adventures!! My best friend is pregnant!!!

Kasie and I first met in 7th grade when we were two awkward young girls that hadn’t really found their footing just yet. That time in a girls life can be confusing and hectic… Having a friend that you can truly count on makes all the difference in the world. We have quite literally grown up together! It’s common to have many best friends throughout the different stages in ones life and while I have made tons of amazing friends along the way (thus far) I am beyond blessed to have had Kasie as my BFF through everything! We have been on many new adventures together and I could not be more excited for this one!!

Happy Easter – a personal story

Happy Easter to all!!

Easter is a day for celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I am more thankful than words can ever describe for all that Jesus has done! His sacrifice is unlike any other and I am truly grateful and in awe. HE is RISEN!

This time of year also bring memories of joy as I often spent it surrounded by family as we colored eggs, hunted for them, and sat down to count our ‘treasures’…

I am beyond excited that my little sisters getting married!! SHE is my best friend and one of the most incredible human beings ever! Growing up we weren’t the closest… as many young girls that are a year and half apart can attest to! BUT I don’t know what I would do without her now! She is humble, selfless, adventurous, and extremely compassionate. I admire her and the way that she cares about others. She has a heart for helping and serving people. She truly inspires me and I just love her SO much!

 As I started to ponder what my first SELFIE SUNDAY post should be, I came up with a few different ideas. I could simply introduce myself and perhaps list a few fun things about me. I could share a quirky fact that not many people know or tell you about my whirlwind romance with my bearded stud of a husband. I mainly wanted to keep it fun and upbeat. If you missed it, be sure to check out my original post explaining my new method of purposeful blogging  – it explains it all! Selfie Sundays are going to be set aside for sharing personal things about me and my life. I want to get to know you all and it’s only fair that I allow you to get to know me as well. Anyways, as I thought more and more about what I wanted to start with I began writing down all of the ideas and getting excited about this first post and then I took a little break while I visited with my grandmother for about an hour while on a trip through Albuquerque, NM (where she lives).

Once I got back to the car I had a very different idea of what I wanted this first post to be about…
