tis the season...

...for my favorite time of year.

Fall is leaving us while giving some glimpses of the winter ahead. A brief snow a few days back made me excited for a winter with my husband. Cold days made warm by heat and hot drinks. (I miss my family's fireplace these days.) And the joyful anticipation of the holidays.

Thanksgiving. Christmas.

Decorations, lights, laughter, and celebrations. Family, food, events. Celebrating our God and His goodness and grace. Remembering His gifts to us and the incarnation of His greatest gift: Jesus.

to thank

"Remembering is an act of thanksgiving, a way of thanksgiving, this turn of the heart over time's shoulder to see all the long way His arms have carried. Gratitude is not only the memories of our heart; gratitude is a memory of God's heart and to thank is to remember God." 
- Ann Voskamp

4 months ago...'s been 4 months since I became a Mrs.

...4 months ago I became His.

And a gift these last 4 months have been! Laughter, adventure, challenges, tears, joy and lots of love and grace have filled the days. I am grateful for this delightful and growing journey so far and can't wait for more days ahead with this man I love. God is good.

As I told my man the other day, "I love being your wife!"

yep, I like this life. :)
