Shoutout to my dad and brother who were patient enough to follow me in every store on the search for the specific ones I wanted 💖✨

All the happy tears ✨

The older I get, the more I realize how much I am like you and that couldn't make me more proud. I wouldn't trade the world for the lunch and dinner dates, the hours on the lake and all of the life spent in between. Thank you for always challenging me, always loving and speaking truth over me and for being the wonderful man that you are. So blessed that you are MY Dad. I love you more than words. Happy Father's Day!

Today we celebrate the life you lived. You were so many things to so many people. You were the most gentle, soft spoken, gracious, kind, sweet-spirited lady who loved her life, her Maker, her husband and her family. You were a “homemaker” in every sense of the word. Your cross-stitching, the clothes you made, the countless hours you would spend over a hot stove and the fact that you could make any house a home. A home who’s door was always open, a home where everyone felt welcome. A home where you could always expect a hot meal made from scratch. A home where your glass of sweet tea would never be caught half-empty.
You were so full of joy, so full of wisdom. I’m forever grateful for all the times you’d pick me up and sit me on your countertops and teach me about life while I would watch you cook. (Her dumplings and her angel biscuits…if you know, you KNOW). I am forever blessed by the life you lived. You were such a great example to me as a woman. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to understand your capacity of strength as you followed your husband who was called into ministry - state after state, as you mothered four wonderful children, as you won the battle against cancer and as you fought the fight against Parkinson’s Disease. You loved and served your husband for over 60 years and you were a great mother to four wonderful children. It is my hope to one day serve my husband, to mother my children and to love the people around me as well as you. I wish I could thank you and tell you how much I love and admire you just one more time. Your life is a life to be celebrated.

All of the happiest wishes go out to you today, Vic. You have blessed so many people in your 25 years of being alive and I'm lucky to be one of them. I'll never be able to thank you enough for your friendship. HBD! 🎉💞👑✨🦄

Happy Mother's Day, Mom. I really do love you more than bacon 🥓

Forever in love w the bay

Year 24: I graduated college. Took a stroll through Central Park. Swam with dolphins. Marveled over an Iceland sunrise. Snorkeled in The Bahamas. Stood next to my best friend as she married the man of her dreams. Took a loop around the London Eye. Got my Pure Barre certification. Helped renovate a church in Germany. Came face to face with the Mona Lisa. Saw NYC from the top of the Empire State Building. Celebrated many weddings. Drooled over the sight of the Eiffel Tower...
Among many other things, there isn't much else to say other than 24 has been the most incredible year of my life. I made a promise to myself a long ago that I would graduate college, see the world and invest myself and my time in things (and people) that better me as a person. I am forever grateful for the growth that has come with every opportunity I've had and for each and every person, close friends and family, who have made every single second count. Last but not least, I owe an enormous amount of gratitude to Chris Miller. Who you are is home to me. You are such gift and joy. Thank you for teaching me to have an unquenched zeal for life and for always challenging me along the way.
Cheers to 25.
