but the greatest of these is love.

It’s Sunday Funday!

I’m currently curled up on my couch with a pumpkin spice latte in my Aaron Rodgers jersey watching the Packers play on this cozy fall-like Sunday. Except, it’s not really fall here in Austin because of 90 degree weather. Oh well! I’ll channel my inner basic in my yoga pants in the AC instead.

October is my favorite month. I stock up on all the pumpkin things from Trader Joe’s, carve pumpkins, dress up for halloween and also celebrate my wedding anniversary.

Wow! It’s our anniversary already? Two years ago I was so nervous I was going to faint or throw up or fall while I walked down the aisle to meet my handsome man at the altar. I’m glad none of that happened and that it was the shortest aisle ever because I was also really excited to marry the love of my life.

With family and friends right by our sides, we had a fantastic day. It is so much hard work preparing for a wedding. But what I think is even more hard work is having the same positive attitude, love and gratitude about our marriage from that wedding day to every day. I feel like I take Aaron for granted every day and don’t show enough appreciation for this man who loves me unconditionally. He sees right through my flaws and supports me to the fullest every single day. I don’t take enough time to realize this daily.


From moving across the country not knowing anyone to starting our careers in the tech field, we’ve been hitting so many “milestones” in our first two years of marriage. I’m not sure where we will be living or what we’ll be doing in the next two years but wherever we go I am blessed to have him right next to me.

>>My goals for our third year of marriage<<

  • Express more gratitude daily towards Aaron.
  • Think before I speak, words do more harm than actions.
  • Pray more together, speak more openly about our faith.

This weekend has been fabulous – got our fest on at Austin City Limits on Friday and visited Blue Owl Brewing’s new brewery on Saturday with friends. Today has been a nice comfortable day together and later we’re going out to dinner downtown to celebrate. I’m ready for the next year and the following years after that in our marriage as we tackle any challenges that come our way together. Our family has been super supportive of us and I’m really grateful to have them all rooting for us.


Thanks for reading and for all of your support!

P.S. I love you Aaron.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7, 13
