I never thought I would get married. Years and years waiting, watching all my friends get married battling the dreaded "why are you still single" question?!! Man, did God ever save his best for me. He is kind and hardworking, adores me loves God too! I know, everybody says that but it's true! God carefully handpicked and worked out our story and it is my favorite. God gave me more than I ever deserved or dreamed of in this man so I whole-heartedly celebrate with each and every one of you. 

MY STORY DRIVES MY PASSION!
YOUR STORY IS MY PRIORITY!

tv shows

I have close, transparent friendships only! Mamma ain't got time for the drama!  Friends that build one another up, sweetly correct and help one another to be the best we can be!

I love the beach-It's my happy place.  I like white and black sand beaches, beaches on the East coast or the West, beaches with cliffs and with rocks too. Atlantic, Caribbean, or Pacific, I love you.
My soul is turquoise I am certain.

I have a strong faith and I am nothing without it. I have been through a lot of  stuff  but I have received just as many blessings!
Without the love, forgiveness and grace of God I would not be where I am today!

No one should have to sacrifice quality because of budget. Your photos are the ONLY thing you take with you from your wedding day...

Riley, our first baby. Our only boy. He is so mamma's boy and I am completely 100% okay with that! He is obsessed with hunting anything that moves. He gives the best cuddles around.

My sweet Isabella. She is so silly and strong. She is a leader. She is fun and so smart. She has 200 facial expressions within one minute and she is decisive and independent.  She is ME! God help us! No, seriously though...she is AMAZING and we are blessed! 

our gift 

In 2013 I married this man! In 2016 we adopted a child. We found out about her through a friend. After ONE WEEK, a ton of prayer and paperwork, we were chosen to be this little girls parents. Three months later...she was born! We brought her home on Christmas day!

My husband is my life and my biggest support. He is the calm to my crazy.  He's totally like no other man I have ever known. Don't get me wrong...he still drives me crazy like no other! BUT, I would rather be crazy with with him than without!
