PS I Adore You

When I became a mother my entire world changed and I felt so many new emotions that I didn't even know existed. I’m naturally a worrier and have tried so much over the last few years to ask the Lord to take some of my constant worry about my family and replace it with trust and peace. It’s hard. There are so many things to worry about, especially as the world continues to grow uglier and uglier.


Daily I pray over my family and ask the Lord for protection, healing, and guidance as we go about our days and I know He’s faithful. I’m learning day by day how to trust in Him more, but that’s an entirely different blog post.

I want to go back to the part where I started to experience a new range of emotions as a mother. My heartaches in an incredible for my own children, but I have found that it also aches for other children when I see them hurt, unhappy, or suffering in any way. I never realized how much compassion I would have for children that aren’t even my own, but I do.

Lately, I have been following a few precious little souls that are battling cancer. Childhood cancer is one of those things I cannot wrap my head around. It makes no sense to me. Even as woman who places my trust in the Lord; I still cannot understand why.

Each time I see a picture of a little child fighting for their innocent life because of this horrible disease I’m tearful and my heart aches so much that I barely can stand it. I cannot imagine how those mothers feel watching their children suffer and fight. I pray with all my might I never have to know what they feel.

I know there is not much anyone can do or say to ease the heartache a mother of a child with cancer feels, but every little bit of joy that is brought into their lives can make a difference. I have made it my goal to purchase as often as I am able from a company called PS I Adore You.

Happy Father's Day!

June 12, 2014














Six years ago when I said “I do” to this amazing man I was so in love with him. Little did I know then how much more in love with him I would be each day. I thought at that moment my love for him was beyond describable, but the first time I saw him holding our 1st son I fell even harder and then when I saw him hold our 2nd son for the first the time I fell again. There is something indescribable about the love you feel when you see the man of your dreams holding your precious children in his arms.

My husband is such an amazing father to our boys. His love for our boys makes my heart beat even faster for him. As a mother you strive daily to be the best kind of mother you can be to your children, but I can honestly say that without Jordan I wouldn’t be the mom I hoped to be the moment I held my boys. He makes me a better mom, he makes me a better person, and there’s no one else in this life I’d want to share this journey of parenthood with.

I’m so thankful for his desire to be a Godly leader to our family, his desire to raise our boys with strength and character, his desire to see them enjoy their childhood, and the constant love he pours into their lives. There’s not a day that goes by where he doesn’t kiss his boys a million times or tell them he loves them over and over. Those acts and words of affirmation are life changing to children and I’m blessed to know that my husband will be the kind of man who isn’t too tough or too busy to love on our children daily.

He’s the kind of dad that after a hard day’s work when he’s barely got anything left to give; he will go and love on our littlest boy while our oldest finishes dinner, then he will put his dinner on hold to play swords with our oldest or play hide and seek or simply just hold him on the couch while they watch golf or baseball. He’s the kind of dad that will lie on the floor of our son’s room when he has a bad dream or just doesn’t want to fall asleep without his daddy in there. He’s the kind of dad that will cheer with sincere excitement when our son poops on the potty. He’s the kind of dad who will do all he can to see our boys happy and well taken care of. He’s the kind of dad that invests in his children’s lives and for that I will forever be grateful.

However, Jordan is not the kind of dad that will hold caterpillars! LOL! {Sorry babe, I couldn't resist!}



I knew the moment I gave my heart to this man that I was making one of the best decisions of my life. The moment I decided to have children with him was the next best decision. There is no other man that I want our boys to have the opportunity to learn from and look up to daily. He means the world to me if you can’t tell that by now. ;)

Happy Father’s Day my love! Thank you for being the most incredible father to our boys. Your love for them is something special.

Happy Anniversary my love!

June 3, 2014





It was 10 years ago in April when I finally told Jordan “I think I more than like you”. Four years later I married that boy that I more than liked and in May we celebrated 6 years of marriage!

I always believed in a fairy tale romance and I truly believe it’s possible for many. I’m one of those lucky girls who have an incredible God fearing husband and I couldn't be more blessed.

Marriage is hard work and we have our ups and downs, but there is no one else that could ever love me the way that Jordan does. There's no one else I'd ever want to walk through life with hand in hand.

Growing up I always wondered if I’d find a man who would love me despite my disability and when Jordan started pursuing me I thought it was too good to be true. He was a persistent one and he never gave up. He got me to open up my heart in a way I never thought possible and he allowed me to feel what true love could be like. I’m so thankful I finally let him in.

He’s my best friend, he is my soul mate, and he’s everything I could ever want and more. He makes me so happy and I pray that we always put God first in our marriage so that our marriage continues to grow and continues to get better.

I look up to this man so much! His heart is huge, his passion is contagious, and he's such an amazing father to our boys. I fall in love with him more and more each day.

I love you so much Jordan! Thank you for being everything I need and thank you for loving me for me. You will never truly understand how great of a man you are for that. There are few in the world that would even bat an eye at a girl with a handicap.  You have my heart for always.


I love you.
