13 Years on August 13th

in the last 13 years we have lived in 4 apartments, 2 houses, and the better part of the last 2,190 days pregnant and raising (and carrying) the most amazing 5 kids in our world. we’ve had adventure, unexpected news, devastating loss, and the most incredible bliss you could ever ask for in a marriage and partnership. we’ve navigated this world we live in the very best we know how, often times waving a white flag in life’s direction- laughing until we cry and crying often until we just have to laugh. but mostly we’ve held hard to the grace and love the Lord has for us and our family- His plan has been, albeit confusing and sometimes frustrating, but so beautiful to come out on the other side of.

in times of complete mess, I am still so grateful as its made our grip on everything, including each other, that much stronger.

“someday you’re going to meet someone unlike any other. it might be when you’re 15 or when you’re 100 but once you find them nobody’s ever going to compare” I’m looking at you, Jordan Fort Massey, and these 5 little people on earth and the two in heaven that we are lucky to love. 13 years on August 13th. happy golden anniversary, my love.
