farewell to my twenties.






as i type these words, there are two hours left in my twenties.
reflecting on these ten years- it was full of ups and downs and in-betweens.
highs and lows. tears and laughter. joy and sorrow.

there are two significant moments from this decade that stick out.


-  when i was almost twenty-one, i made Jesus the Lord + Savior of my life. i wasn't magically perfect afterward either. my story is filled with many mistakes and missteps, but He has taken the broken parts and made them beautiful. He is my reason for living. Jesus is enough for me.


-  i made a commitment to love someone forever. i became a wife + made jared a husband. our story is unlike anything i ever imagined, but the last year and a half has been wild and crazy and amazing. truth be told, marriage isn't hard. it's holy. but you have two broken sinners. this is why we both choose to love each other every single day. i love him even though he leaves a path of crumbs/socks/wrappers/clothes/debris wherever he goes. he loves me despite the fact that i am hormotional.

i am so incredibly thankful. God takes broken things and makes them beautiful- i'm living proof. 


what a crazy-beautiful life this is.

"You did it: you changed wild lament into whirling dance;

You ripped off my black mourning band and decked me with wildflowers.

i’m about to burst with song; i can’t keep quiet about You.

God, my God, i can’t thank you enough." 

[psalm 30:11-12 // msg]
