We got our wedding photos and I’m obsessed!! @nicolereneephotographykc has such a talent and a gift in telling stories through photos. I am in awe of how she captured our big day! 📷 As we have been going through each part of the day, I continue to come back to this photo and it makes me teary eyed every time! This is our Young Life crew from so many different seasons of life (missing a handful of others). Some from my first years as a leader in KC, some from my time on staff, many from @castawayclubyl where Ryan and I met, and from our current area in Wisconsin. So many seasons of Young Life coming together in one place. Wow, that just blows my mind! I always wanted to marry someone who loved Young Life as much as I do but I didn’t actually think I would find anyone who would be just that! 💕 God placed that desire on my heart, and I have realized time and time again that if God places a desire on my heart He will be faithful in BIG ways. I never imagined this is what my world would look like and I wouldn’t change it for anything! ⭐️ Over the last 5 years of being involved with Young Life I have grown in so many ways, met so many amazing people and have been learning how big and wonderful our God is! I am where I am today because of the impact Young Life has had on my world! 🌎 To ALL my Young Life friends — THANK YOU! Thank you for letting me enter into your world and letting me love you. I started as a leader because I felt called to love high school kids but little did I know that you all would teach me even more about how to love others, how to laugh during the ups and downs of life, and simply learn how to show up and feel loved regardless of whats going on in my world! Thanks for letting me be ‘mom’ and truly bringing so much joy into my world! Our door, and our fridge 😆 is always open and I pray we continue to do life together even if we don’t live close by each other! I love you all dearly! 😘💗
Christmas has arrived at the Chmill’s and I’m so happy!!! Something about setting up Christmas decorations makes me feel so cozy and relaxed…especially this year as we get to decorate for the first time as a married couple! I didn’t think we would have many ornaments for the tree but little did I know, Ryan had box full! His mom has given him an ornament every year since he was born and each one has the date on the bottom...it was so fun watching him pick up each one and tell me what year it was from! @tchmill you are the best! 🎄 Today is also Chad the Dad’s birthday AND Litmas Club, aka ‘the most magical day of the year!’ So many exciting events on this Monday!!! Make it a magical day friends!! 🌟
I can't get over how much I love this family! I started watching these kiddos in 2013 and have now become apart of their family and I could not be more grateful! If you know the Irvine family, you know they are filled with so much joy and are some of the kindest people you will ever meet! Thanks for loving me all these years and teaching how to serve others so well! 💕
In the spirit of giving back, I want to tell you all about a little something I love called Young Life! Ryan and I lead at @km_younglife and we are helping kids get to summer camp! We have three trips this year, one to @castawayclubyl in Minnesota, one to Mexico and one to Canada @beyondmalibu 🙌 We are doing a fundraiser right now called Mixed Bags Designs and 40% of your order will go straight to helping a kid get to camp. Would you be willing to help get a kid to camp and get some Christmas shopping done all at the same time?! 🎁 Click the link in my bio and take a peak at what they have to offer. I love their products and everything will ship to you in time for Christmas! You can put my name in as the seller when you check out! Our fundraising ID is: 845238 🎄 Thanks in advance! We appreciate your heart for wanting to help kids hear about Jesus this summer!
I’m so thankful for this sweet husband of mine! 💛 He has been cooking all our meals this week while I’ve been behind my computer editing away and the comedian I need when I’m being too hard on myself. Not to mention he’s been a little under the weather but still finds energy to love me so well! 👨🍳 @ryanchmill you are my favorite and I’m thankful I get to walk through life with you! 🥰 . . 📷: @abbyparkphotography
