4 years ( + 3 days) of being totally and completely in love with you. thank you for always choosing me, facetiming me every day because of long distance, and for showing me what unconditional love looks like. the way you love me always points me back to our Father and the love He has for us, and i am forever grateful for that. i’m yours forever.

long distance is hard. going from spending every single second together at college, to seeing each other twice in over 3 months is REALLY hard. but next month we celebrate our 4 YEARS together. i’ve been really proud of grant for a lot of things in 4 years (playing college baseball, school achievements, getting a job) but the thing i’m the MOST proud of him for is his growing love for the Lord. furthermore, the way He encourages ME to love the Lord. do we have work to do to put God first in every part of our relationship? 100% yes. that’s something we are actively trying to get better at. but opening up this sweet surprise today made me extra thankful that i have a man that not only encourages me daily, but encourages me with words from our Heavenly Father. if you knew us freshman year of college, you probably never would have thought we would have made it. but through the years we have grown up together, continuously chosen each other, and most importantly grown in the Lord together. i’m just really proud of how far we’ve come in our relationship, and my heart couldn’t be any more full knowing that i have a man that helps me chase Jesus daily. people like to say that relationship goals are all about likes, or attractiveness, or whatever, but i PROMISE you that if you find a man that helps you love Jesus, it will be better than anything you’d ever imagined. grant— i’m on your side and in your corner. forever.
happy monday!🌼 the other day, me and my girl @emmer131 were talking about how fake social media is and how nobody ever wants to post the truth about themselves. originally, i just wanted to make a stupid witty caption about the dry shampoo in the bottom right corner of this picture, but then i realized i would be doing the thing i HATE when other people do. and me and @emmer131’s conversation popped into my brain. so, here’s a real caption for you. my anxiety has been AWFUL lately, i’ve been really insecure about the number on the scale, and i feel like i’m way behind everyone else my age. i’m not saying this for pity, because i actually had a GREAT day today. (finally. thank you Jesus) yes, it would have been easy to write a silly little caption, but it wouldn’t be reflective of where i’ve been in life recently. whenever i’m scrolling through social media, i think to myself “how can all these people be happy besides me?” but then i realize that maybe, just maybe, they aren’t happy either, and that they are struggling in the same way that i am. so, if you feel alone, just know that i’m struggling too. and it’s OKAY. instagram doesn’t always have to be happy to be necessary. and life doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.
thankful for long weekends that give me time with this guy!😍
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEST GIRL!❤️ there isn’t another soul on this earth i always laugh to the point of tears with, cry during the rocky movie with (adriennnn!!!), eat carbs with, shop at target with, sing barry manilow with, watch dr phil with, walk 2 miles nightly with, vent about 1st world problems with, take pics of scrappy with, travel to anywhere and everywhere with, and do life every single day with. mom, you are truly my best friend in the entire world and i feel blessed beyond measure to call you ‘mom’. celebrating is easy when you’re celebrating someone that is SO amazing. i love you so much!!! you’ll never know how much i adore you!

(or don’t, that’s okay!!!) ((you’ll get this caption if you read the post lol))
