Happy 10th Anniversary! ❤️
“Blood doesn’t make someone family. LOVE is what makes a family.”

Family, that’s a strong word. For me, it means to feel SECURE, to have someone who can count on, who shares your problems. They are the people you know will never FAIL you.

Ten years ago today I married my best friend, biggest supporter, and the love of my life. It’s crazy how much of an adventure it’s been. The two of us have held hands and supported each other through the most difficult challenges as well as some of the most exciting surprises. I just want to share a few of my favorite moments with Phil from the last 10 years.

The first moment is the day we found out we were going to have Tabitha ( our daughter). As most of you know, I was almost 8 weeks pregnant when I had a miscarriage ( my baby has no heartbeat), I was heart broken. Then I got pregnant again after 3 months. I took the test and found out that we’d soon be parents. It was such a blessing in a time we needed it most. 

The second is the moment my son Joshua was born. There was a ton of preparation involved but it was all worth it the moment Joshua was born ( all natural birth ) and I received him then handed him to his dad. I wouldn’t trade that for anything. We praise God for blessing us with our wonderful birth experience and our healthy little boy!

Phil is my best friend and encourager, my most faithful prayer partner and my life long companion & love. He knew me for who I was; I could relax and be myself around him, and he loved me just the same. We laughed the hardest when we were together. We had the most fun. We made the best memories with our kids. God has richly blessed my life because of him, and I am eternally grateful. 

Cheers to the best 10 years of our lives and cheers to many more!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! ❤️

 I absolutely love how elegant this dress is, love how it it fits around my waist but it’s really loose around the bust. The back and sleeves are very flattering. I just needs a little work done and it will be just perfect. Overall I really loved wearing this dress and I can see myself wearing it many more times.
