chicago recap.

what a weekend. it was full of relaxation, ferris wheels, fantastic food (clearly), shopping, great wine, culture, laughing, naps, spontaneity, history, peter pan, whimsical fairies, romance, and the list just goes on! i want to go back.

one year.

boo and i leave in approximately twelve hours for chicago. why are we going you ask? why to celebrate ONE YEAR of MARRIAGE of course! i have been a wifey for a whole year (well, it'll be a year on the 29th, but since i'll be livin it up in chi-town, i won't be able to post on the actual day). and boo has been the most godly, loving, protective, freakin-most-hillarious-man-you'll-ever meet-in-your-life, sacrificial husband that ever lived. we have grown in so many ways together and i cannot believe it has already been an entire year. i have never learned so much about Christ, love, my sinful nature, and forgiveness as i have in the past 365 days. marriage is all this and more. a lot like this post, which i wrote some time ago, but  am still unfolding the revelation of. 

i was reading about william and catherine booth, an amazing husband and wife team who started the salvation army. a quote about them and their lives said "each individually may have accomplished little in their lifetimes, but when God brought them together, they so complimented each other's strengths that they became a powerful force for God." this is what i want to be. i want to be a team who takes the kingdom of God by force and glorifies Christ in everything. 

we had "one year" pictures done by corynne olivia photography. corynne is only a sophomore in high school and is phenomenal (hey, you should check out her blog!). have a looksie at this sneak peak of our photo shoot. 

(uhhh, my strap broke here so i had to make this a strapless dress until i can fix it!)

happy anniversary to my best friend :)


so this post is extremely mushy. sorry im not sorry, okay? there is still so much i need to do. finishing packing and our playlist for the car being a few. but more importantly, i need to sleep. a girl needs to get her beauty sleep for the mister :)

can't sleep.

Heavenly Father 
You always amaze me
Let your kingdom come 
In my world and in my life
You give me the food I need 
To live through the day
And forgive me as I forgive 
The people that wronged me
Lead me far from temptation
Deliver me from the evil one

I look out the window 
The birds are composing
Not a note is out of tune 
Or out of place
I look at the meadow 
And stare at the flowers
Better dressed than any girl 
On her wedding day

So why do I worry?
Why do I freak out?
God knows what I need
You know what I need

Chorus (3x):
Your love is
Your love is
Your love is strong

The kingdom of the heavens 
Is now advancing
Invade my heart 
Invade this broken town
The kingdom of the heavens 
Is buried treasure
Will you sell yourself 
To buy the one you've found?

Two things you told me
That you are strong
And you love me
Yes, you love me

(Chorus 3x)

Our God in heaven
Hallowed be
Thy name above all names
Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us today our daily bread
Forgive us wicked sinners
Lead us far away from our vices
And deliver us from these prisons

who knew?

fyi ladies: 
when you have stabbing cramps in your baby maker and no heating pad is to be found, a hot bowl of oatmeal resting on the lower abdomen will suffice.

currently speaking from experience...

know what i love?

i love how i can throw on a sundress and go drink a smoothie with my boo, all to the glory of God. 

and whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. -colossians 3:17

best day ever.

i dont know if today could have been any better:

1. my morning, which consisted of eating blackberry cobbler and talking about/trying on our new spring line of dresses at work. sweets & fashion (especially dresses): right up my alley.

2. me, a heated blanket, two snuggly labrador retrievers that compete for my affection, and a nap...perfection.

3. a gorgeous day consisting of driving with the windows down and the radio good and loud.

4. my summer starting TODAY!

5. finding out i no longer have to take another literature course next semester.

6. attending an athletes in action event tonight and hearing two wonderful athletes share their stories and be inducted into the AIA hall of faith...very cool.

hope you found your thursday to be just as blessed :)
