Union28 Marriage Apparelis a family owned shop that designs and sells fabulous shirts with encouraging messages for husbands and wives (kids too!). I love their graphic tees and how they shine a positive light on marriage. I had a fun Q&A session with owner, Jaclyn, and I’m sure you’ll love this Small Shop Spotlight!
I was invited by my friend Melissa of Glad Tidings By Mel, to share the story of how my husband and I met. Several others have joined in for some Valentine’s Day fun, and using the hashtag #AndThenTheyWereMine onInstagram, you can follow along and/or share a story of your own! I’m eager to read more tales about the early days of these relationships. It’s neat to look back at our story and see all that God has done. Here’s a bit about how we came to be!
My toddler has been the very embodiment of a Todzilla lately. Oh these threenage years! It’s been a test of my patience for sure, but when I’m not pulling my hair out or practicing breathing techniques, this little girl keeps me laughing! Yesterday’s conversation was no exception. 😄
I am passionate about many things. Today, however, is a special day and I’d like to share my love, passion, and gratitude for being blessed with the best husband a woman could ask for. 2 years ago my prayers were answered. It was our wedding day, and family and friends gathered as we entered into thissacred covenant. I knew my life would be changed forever, but I couldn’t begin to imagine what the Lord had in store for me! Because of him I am a wife and a mother. Because of him I have an earthly sense of the unconditionalloveGod has for me. He is my spiritual head, my rock and my support. He is more than I could’ve asked for. He celebrates the woman I was created to be.
Last year we had a photo shoot to commemorate our first anniversary together. I’d like to share these photos with you and give a very special thanks to our photographers. Larry Daviswas our wedding photographer and planted this idea in our minds. I’d heard of a“Trash the Dress”shoot as a symbolic statement that there will only be “one dress for one man”. The idea of getting all dolled up and getting to frolic about in a pretty dress, greatly appealed to my inner-child. Besides, who else gets to wear their wedding gown twice? 😉
After a day of going where no bride had gone before, it was time for the grand finale. Here we were joined by our dear friend and professional photographer, Squint Foto. As my husband’s best man he was unable to take photos on our wedding day. Let’s just say he more than made up for it!
Want to know a secret? There were 3 of us in these photos. Our sweet baby girl was just beginning to grow inside of me. I’m teary-eyed thinking of how my whole world has been changed. I love you babe! 2 down…100 more to go. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!
