This image is a few years old (I was a lot skinnier and his face was beardless) but I love it nonetheless. I see this and I’m reminded of how much he hates having his picture taken, and ran outside with me anyway for a quick photo because it was important to me. He’s always thinking of everyone else, putting our family first, trying to find ways to laugh or make me laugh...even when things are rough, our life is like a sweet little episode of This Is Us. I couldn’t be more thankful this Valentine’s Day ❤️

Creating your own traditions is so important, especially in this disposable world we’re living in right now - it’s so important to have the things that matter not be disposable. Don’t be afraid to go against the grain of tradition and do a first look if it suits you better (or not! It’s your day!). Maybe wearing a blush pink or dusty blue dress, rather than a pure white, is something you really want to do, but you know tradition says brides wear white. Perhaps foregoing a veil, or your groom wants to wear a navy or deep marsala for a suit color rather than traditional black, are things you can’t stop thinking about. You might want to write your own vows, so that you can really tell each other exactly what you’re heart is saying, and the thought of having your officiant marrying you with the same words as he does everyone else is impersonal. You could want to spend some alone time together, away from the crowd, just to have a quiet moment with your new forever love. Your little family might have grown by one cute labradoodle and you want him to be your ring bearer instead of a person. Whatever it is that pulls at your heart and tells you “This! This will make our day even more special. I can’t wait to tell our children how we did this amazing thing on our wedding day, because they’ll want to do it too!”, I encourage you to embrace it, and do it.
A little #mondaymotivation for you today... “Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.” ❤️❤️
Today has been so gloomy out and other than a quick trip to Walmart, I’ve been under blankets and waiting on #superbowl52 to start 🙈 I have to know...who are you rooting for?! Eagles? Patriots? Or are you just here for the commercials, @justintimberlake at half time, and @nbcthisisus right after? 😜 🤷🏻♀️ #imnotmissingasinglesecondofthisisus
