How did I know it was him? You ask—.
Before we did this🙏🏼together,I did that...🙏🏼
🙏🏼 A L O N E.

“The one” doesn’t come when you pray him/her to come, the one comes when your prayer is to BE the one for that man/woman.
❤️
We’ve come together & stayed together not because of our love, but because He continually pours His love in us.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking... and I do always walk along the ocean with a tutu.
💯
In my baby dreams, I wanted to be a ballerina so let me just be great here for this moment. 😂
The wind was flowing through my hair & big things were being planned...like what shall I binge tonight? 🤷🏽‍♀️
Lol So on that note, what’s your latest binge?! I need some ideas! 👇🏽
I just finished binging Dawson’s Creek for the 3rd time this year! (The nostalgia is real) and my latest is the 2nd season of the Handmaids Tale!

::Making memories with you is my favorite thing to do:: 🌿 We all need a partner who’s got our back like this! 😉 #collectmoments Make someone smile like this today...tag someone, your bff, boo or whoever it is that you know always has your back in the comments 👇🏽!

About last night 🌿 It was a whirlwind. But I left inspired and reminded of how one common vision can unite so many! #communityovercompetition
I could say a bajillion things more but man, I’m just honored to play a tiny role in something so beautiful. ♥️ @nataliefranke & @marthabitar Thank you guys for making the trek down to share your smiles in person! But more importantly so much wisdom and inspiration! So grateful for your hearts and the hearts of each and every person who helped make last night so amazing!

Some of my favorite moments from this vow renewal was watching in various ways how this sweet husband served his lovely wife. What a beautiful picture of grace, humility and leadership. 🌿

It doesn’t have to be big, something as simple as a kind word or bringing a cup of lemonade can change someone’s day in an instant. • The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others • -Gandhi #Servewithlove today 🌿

Last week Was one of THOSE weeks...where any and every challenge came my way! I’m not gonna lie, on Monday there were tears and I felt defeated. But before the sunset I was determined to shift heaven and earth. It took a lot of work and all the P’s! Lol Prayer, persistence and patience...but before weeks end, I got my answers, the results I was hoping for and just what I needed! By Friday, I got to spend my day hangin out here. ☀️ I just sat for a while... closed my eyes, listened to the waves and prayed. It doesn’t always happen this quickly by any means.. but If you wonder how I do it, this is it. Jesus is the foundation. Nothing more, nothing less. After a week of crashing waves, I felt extra thankful for these moments of stillness as I watched the water sparkle. #hisgraceissufficient ———————————————————————————•The only limits in L I F E are the ones you make• 🌿

After I finished their beautiful gallery, my cheeks were hurting so bad from smiling at my computer screen. I may look like a lunatic but who cares when you see this. lol #allthefeels #collectmoments

Happy Birthday America!!! •1776• ♥️ #Homeofthebrave #4thofjuly
