Posted in A Little Bit About Me, Favorites Friday!, Marriage


So if you didn’t figure it out from the title of my blog post….this gal right here is engaged and I am doing this marriage thing!!

I know, I know!! Exciting stuff, right!? I’ve been dying to tell y’all and I was finally able to take the time to sit down and write the good news post! So buckle in for a quick run through of the details!

Two weeks ago on March 22nd we went out to dinner at an Italian restaurant. While we were eating our pasta we started talking about us and how far we have come since October when we started dating. He tells me some of the sweetest things I’ve ever heard and pulls out this gorgeous ring! *Cue the waitress gal* She comes up to our table and asked us all sorts of questions, but once she finally scooted, he asked “will you marry me?” and I literally about died from hearing the words. It was one of the most incredible moments of my life. If you’ve ever been proposed to, you totally understand what I’m saying. It’s hard to quantify that feeling with words. It’s kind of overwhelming knowing that someone is voluntarily choosing you out of the millions of gals in the world. They are choosing to spend the rest of their life with you, through the good and through the bad.

So who’s the good looking man I’m marrying? Wonderful question, I’m so glad you asked! His name is Josh and he is a pilot. He currently teaches new students how to fly airplanes and he really enjoys it! He’s a couple years older than me and we’ve known each other for probably 12-13 years. He’s so similar to my dad in so many aspects that it just cracks me up. He’s silly and goofy. Uses funny voices and makes up random words. He loves sports, which was always something I hoped for in a husband. He loves to bake and cook, which could be bad for our waist lines. He’s also a drummer! He loves to travel and visit new places just as much as I do. Honest to goodness, I couldn’t have found a better man!! ❤ God is so good.

So what’s next? You ask the greatest questions! He has been looking for work since we started dating due to that fact that where we live doesn’t have consistently great weather for teaching new students how to fly due to snow, wind, rain, clouds…you get the picture. So we decided to get married before we move to avoid having to move twice and be apart from each other for an extended period of time. So! The wedding date is June 29th of this year. Yes…I know it’s quick. I ain’t worried! 😉 We are looking at a couple places on the east coast and a couple places in the mid-west. So we will see what happens in that department!!

That’s all of my update for the day! I will keep you updated as the weeks continue to go by…no worries there 😉


Have a Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!!

I pray everyone has a lovely day celebrating with family and friends, new or old. Whatever you are doing today, take specific time to be grateful for everything we have been blessed with, good and bad.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

God sent his only Son, Jesus, to Earth as a little baby to grow up with mankind and eventually give his life on a cross for all humanity. He would die on the cross after a terrible, awful Roman torturing. He would be buried in a tomb and then rise from the dead three days later, thus conquering death, sin, and the devil!

We will still sin. We will still struggle. We will eventually die. BUT if we believe that Jesus came to earth, died, and rose again and we accept his gift of forgiveness, recognizing we are ever so sinful and incapable of living a perfect life on our own, we are written down in the Lamb’s Book of Life and saved a place in Heaven with God forever!

Enjoy this day with whoever you are with! I hope you have a very wonderful day filled with smiles and joy, good food and love! 🙂
