Moving into a house has got me organizing all sorts of things, along with unpacking and re-packing our storage items. Today I discovered all of our bridal shower and wedding cards. I was ready to purge and throw them out, but I read every single one of them. They were SO thoughtful and full of hope for me and Raimo. Everyone was so generous and I think genuinely excited, many of them mentioning eternity and how they hoped our marriage would be all we dreamed it would be.
I feel so very loved right now- I cannot throw them out! (There are probably a hundred!)

I also found a stack of cards where the women at my shower wrote about mishaps at their weddings. Some of them were pretty crazy! I had a good laugh! They were a reminder to not sweat the small stuff. I am happy to say my wedding went without any mishap… Thankfully!
Reminiscing on that happy time made me smile. I pulled out my BEAUTIFUL invitation- I still love it! (Even sideways!)
Marriage has been such a ride. He’s still got it.
My heart went pitter patter for him this Sunday as he blessed baby Berrett at church and did such a beautiful job. And then he gave a talk right after about seeing the Lord’s hand in our lives and being thankful. He made everyone laugh and also made everyone cry, and I was proud to be his wife.
