I’ve felt like a laboring field lately. Or a bathtub with the cold, dirty water being drained out of it.
But today…. this day has been a day of solitude, study, intercession, worship, celebration, and creativity. A wondrous and lovely day indeed.
I made some new pieces recently for my etsy shop, and had a small photo shoot with myself earlier. I’m glad I did that, because it gave me that little inspiration I needed to come up with some other new stuff. You can find all of these treasures if you click HERE…. or just click the etsy button —> over there on the side of the page. It’ll take you right to ’em.
It’s weird. 2 years of marriage went by uncomfortably fast. But it feels good to say that those two years were vastly substantial. Lots of meat. Real rich.
Here’s our story in a few pictures.
We met in 2007. He didn’t give me a second thought and I thought he was rude and scary.
I did a lot of dancing in 2008. A single, care-free and crazy gal. He got to live the life of the road and spent most of his time with good people.
Thanks to the pretty lady in the middle, we were reunited at the beginning of 2009. Our status went from acquaintances to friends over the year. And then on September 11th, we spend the day together. By the end of September, we decided we wanted to get married. And the rest is history….
My life with Daniel is better than it ever was without him, even in our rough moments. He is my best friend, and my leader. I love him THE MOST much.
I know I already did a picture post of Abram recently, but MAN I took these pictures of him a few days ago while we were playing outside and I can’t NOT share them!
But before I do, just an update on me: I had a rough week. Monday’s post was all about needing God, and it rang true for me the past few days. I really let most things defeat me this week. It’s just one punch in the jaw after another, and this morning I woke up with achy eyes and the beginnings of a sore throat. It’s difficult not to allow myself to fall into a depression or feel like God is against me. But I press on, with the promises of scripture and the encouragement that surrounds me all the time.
Tomorrow Daniel and I leave for St. Augustine for our 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!! It’s gross how fast time has come and gone. I hate it. But I look forward to spending a few days with my husband, celebrating one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. We are staying at the Cedar House Inn and booked a room that looks very similar to the one we stayed in on our honeymoon. I can’t wait to see the fort tomorrow and go on a wine tour and tasting Saturday afternoon!
