I know I’ve been saying it a lot recently, but I am feeling grateful again that I get to do stuff like this (^). for. my. job. It is an amazing gift to be able to be a part of such a special day in peoples’ lives and to be a part of making really beautiful things out of already beautiful things. Being surrounded by flowers? Awesome!

What’s your dream job?

first anniversary! {day 71}

today is our one year wedding anniversary. so much to be grateful for! that I am with my hubby after a few days away for work, for a sweet husband full of surprises and amazing gifts, and for time to just relax and be together.

for a year full of laughter, people we love, date nights, puppy snuggles and most importantly, tons of love. there have been hard times, sickness, and stress, but through it all I think we’ve grown to love each other more and better. I am so, so thankful. my hubby is amazing, I am so blessed.

for a super pretty sunset that I got to drive towards and watch…
for rehearsal dinners and weddings and for friends turning 30 and bonfires. this is a super busy weekend, but crazy full of goodness.

I also wanted to share this precious picture:

there’s no better feeling than feeling right at home!! what a blessing for these boys who, 24 hours ago, had never even set foot in the us, and had definitely never had a home to call their own. beautiful.
