Love remains

It's been a little over eight years since Travis and I stood in God's house, held hands and committed to love one another under God's guidance.

In that time, we have shared more than we ever thought possible. Our love has changed and grown, with some layers so deep nothing could uncover them. Knowing our feelings will only be understood by one another is a gift, one that only God provides. Our moments together aren't captured nearly enough, so every few years we have professional photos taken. We're not big on the selfies... Each time we look at these sets of photos we reflect on our past days and relish the present.

Our love has changed and grown, but it is ever-present.

We can't thank Megan Rhea Photography enough for her patience and letting us be a part of her art. These photos are us- today. There are quite a few pictures... It was hard not to post our full gallery.

Thankful Tuesday: The ability to climb

"Life is a mountainous road. Highs, lows and curves come our way. But, I'm not worried. I'm a Southern girl ready to navigate that road."

Yep, I own that quote. At a young age I learned that in the blink of an eye, life can change... and does change. Those we love become ill, friendships fade, pain and fear attack, people disappoint us and the plans we make change. It's not fun to admit, but no one is exempt from the lows and curves that life hold. But, there's always something to be thankful for... God leads and gives us the ability to climb out of the lows back to the top, to see all clearer and the paths that lay in front of us and behind us.

A few years ago I was in a slump... I wasn't feeling well, had little energy, had gained weight and just couldn't seem to find the way out of the valley. I was still a happy-go-lucky girl but knew I wasn't fully myself. I knew I needed help so I turned to a fitness trainer. I didn't know it then but that was the first step to finding my way back to the peak. Then, just a year later, pain and weakness overcame me. I fell back into the slump. This time, I had the knowledge and ability to get back to the top on my own (with God's help, of course). Yes, it took longer, but there's no greater feeling than knowing I have the ability to climb.

Tomorrow may be the start of another slump. It's natural. But, I serve a mighty God who gives me the ability to find answers, find the will, and climb to the top. I have learned from each low, each curve that's come my way. I will always take lessons form those moments; otherwise, I can't grow. I am who I am from all those experiences and am thankful that I not only know how to navigate but want to navigate.

Weekend Getaway + U by Kotex free sample

As the cooler air moves in and starts to settle, I become more and more anxious for a weekend getaway! The Appalachian Mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway feature the best fall weekend destinations. From Blowing Rock, North Carolina to Breaks Interstate Park in Virginia, you'll fall in love with the nature that surrounds you. Book a cabin in the woods and explore towns offering roadside restaurants, apple farms, gem mines and the best boutique shopping! The trails, views and other outdoor activities are a given! The mountainsides are covered in bright shades of red, orange and yellow. It's breathtaking. And, let's not forget front porch sitting, reading a book and sipping apple cider. I'm a sucker for dystopian stories... You'll always find me in the teen fiction section in bookstores. What can I say? I'm young at heart.

Book your trip now and grab these items to perfect your escape.

Thankful Tuesday: Short Moments, Monumental Impact

I'm blessed to be in a position that allows me to encounter so many people. Some, I have the honor of seeing regularly. Others, it's a one-time conversation.

There are people that have came into my life that I don't truly know, but have made a monumental impact in my being. Today, I celebrate them- the ones I will never forget despite brief encounters.
