His arms are strong enough to hold every fear and every beautiful, broken piece of me. And lately, it's been messy. When life seems to come in on every side, I am thankful for love like this. Love that runs deeper than fear, love that reaches across state lines, love that exceeds + expands and pushes me to be better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every day, I'm reminded that, above all else, this kind of love is truly what matters.
I wish I could spend every day shooting at @neuneumpls. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Beyond thankful for a job that allows me to use my gifts + talents to serve others. Most days it doesn’t even feel like work. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @marissanoble
Loving these words from @hannahbrencher on a Monday morning. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “You already have what it takes. You’re already equipped and strong enough to face the bumps on the road ahead. You are already set to start. So tap in. Tap in and don’t waste any more time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You’re not done yet.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How’s THAT for a little #MondayMotivation? 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: @dalaynamcknight
Moving to a new city alone is hard. Starting a new job (in a new industry) is hard. Long-distance is hard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So far, 2019 has been HARD. And it definitely hasn’t been pretty (re: my eyelashes started falling out again because #stressed). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But now we’re one month in, and little by little all of these things are getting easier. Grateful, thankful, and straight-up BLESSED with all of the wonderful people in my life. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: @dalaynamcknight
Best part of 2018? Him.
Help me fill up space. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Help me take up space. Help me to fill my spaces. Help me to not be apologetic for owning the space I'm in. Help me move and expand. Help me to not be sorry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At some point we stop praying to be made small and we start asking God to expand our territory and help us believe we are worthy to be here now. -@hannahbrencher ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @carlylavigne 💁🏼♀️: @lainepalmplanning
A year ago I told my sister I was going to have coffee with a friend, which was true ... until it wasn’t. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For years Travis had been one of my closest friends, and I knew he was leaving to travel the world so I thought it would be fun to get together before he left. But even then, part of me knew it was going to be more than just catching up with a friend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There’s always been a little part of me that couldn’t shake him. Since the day I met him, I knew he was special. It took six years for us to find each other again but we both needed those years to prepare our hearts for each other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @travismhaag I love you more and more every day. Here’s to many more years of coffee + brunch dates. ❤️
