It's Sunday! To me Sunday always feels like the sweet wrap-up of another week...and today it's hitting me that we are already officially HALF-WAY through October! Has this year flown by for anyone else!?
Hey friends! Decided to hop on for #fridayintroductions - and this time share a photo of both of us! (from our own wedding!)⠀⠀⠀ 🌿⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are some #fastfacts about us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Blue is BOTH of our favorite color! Convenient when it comes to decor 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Dave's absolute favorite food is pizza....which means we have it ALL.THE.TIME. (I'm talkin 3 or 4 times a week.....) Best thing about this...he went to school for nutrition! C'mon man⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. We got engaged at Niagara Falls in Canada, and married in Riviera Maya, Mexico. We LOVE to travel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. We're both huge history and architecture nerds, so living here in Charleston, SC. is perfect for us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Friday! 📷 @jennidarling
I decided to share this joy-filled photo today because I needed a reminder. Today, as I watch (for what seems like the 100th time this year) the awful destruction left behind in the wake of yet another huge hurricane, I found myself feeling heavy. Heavy-hearted, unpeaceful, upset, shaken. Then I stumbled across a YouTube video that spoke a simple message I've heard so many times it's not funny - but somehow in the midst of the actual storms of life I'd forgotten. (Please pardon this #longestpostever but I felt like I needed to share)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌿⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ephesians 6 talks about armor, but we live in 2018 so armor feels unrealistic, maybe 'outdated'...but certainly not relevant to my life. As I sit here, feeling bogged down by the bad stuff, that YouTube video reminded me of a very specific part of the chapter: verses 11 - 14 say to STAND four times. FOUR TIMES. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌿⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stand. Stand against. Stay firm. Don't....give....up. Simply, persevere. Friends, life can be really hard and ugly sometimes, and in the hardest times this little thing likes to escape me. Stand. Don't be shaken, don't waiver in what you know to be true - it's just a storm and it will always pass. We serve a bigger God, and he is good. His armor is stronger than the storm, even if the trees around you have been uprooted and thrown. 🌿⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Finally, remember you're not standing alone.
I LOVE the love Ashley and Chad have for each other...and I feel like their beautiful, sunny wedding is exactly what we need to see on this dreary, rainy day! (link in bio)
Dreamy dusty rose, lavender, and eucalyptus...does a color palette get any better than this?! 💐 Anyone else obsessed with flowers, but know nothing about them (like me) ?! :)
