Olivia Critch  Pastor's wife at @cbgladesFTL


One year ago today, I got to marry the love of my life. I still cannot believe how incredibly blessed I am to call him my husband. Michael, it is an honor and a privilege to be loved by you and to take your name. This first year of marriage has been a crazy journey full of love, laughter, and also a lot of learning. Every day I am more and more excited to do that with you for the rest of my life. You're an amazing answer to prayer and I LOVE YOU more than words can say. Happy First Anniversary, babe :) πŸ’•#TheCritchHitch #FirstAnniversary #YearOne #loveofmylife

(Caution: ranting post ahead!)
I can't believe I actually did this. I didn't post about it once because I honestly didn't think I'd be able to complete it. But, with the help of my amazing husband, tons of great resources, and A LOT of prayer, I was able to make it through a life-changing process.
Results? I lost 7lbs without exercising (which I don't recommend, you NEED to work out...its a long story), my skin is glowing, my energy levels increased, my mood improved (that took a while), my digestive issues have subsided significantly, and I learned more about cooking than I ever thought I would! All this and so much more makes the last 30 days so worth it, as aggravating as they were at times. Don't get me wrong, this was difficult. And stressful. And I wanted to quit like 8 times. I don't know if I'll ever be able to do it again, but if I could, it'd be worth it. I can't wait to see what the reintroduction process brings!
Thanks to @whole30 social media, @realplans, @mikecritch, and @lizzyreid for your help in making this accomplishment possible πŸŽ‰

Happy Mother's Day to my amazing, beautiful, loving mom who's energy and enthusiasm has brought me through every high and low moment of life. I love you so much πŸ’•

And for the first time, I'm so thankful to have an incredible mother-in-law to love and celebrate too! πŸ’• Her kindness and generosity has made me feel so welcomed into my new family!
