There is so much going on in our lives right now; It’s a whirlwind coming in from every direction. But It’s not all bad – quite a bit of it is very very good. Next week, Ross and I will celebrate five years as a married couple. Five. Whole. Years. It barely seems possible. But, I can look back on big events of each year of our marriage – remembering the wonderful times, laughing for hours together (of which there are many), and the difficult times too, where there have been tears – and I realize that yes, it has been five full years of a beautiful marriage. And, I hope God blesses us with many many more years. I do feel like this is only the beginning. Learning to walk in life and grow as a married couple has been the most seemingly insurmountable task, some days. It’s hard to imagine taking two imperfect, and sometimes selfish people, trying to combine their lives, and come out with something good. But by God’s grace, that’s what seems to be happening. An earthly picture of Christ and the church. Marriage is a wonderful thing.

  1. Love these colors together and those shoes are stellar!
    What I really love, though, is the message in this post. As a newlywed (married for just under 3 months now) it makes me excited to hear a snippet of your take on marriage thus far. I’ve learned so much from mine already.. and I can only play for the privelege of more!

    Thanks for the sweet reminder.
    xo, a.f.
