We’ve been meaning to tell you guys something…

Brandon asked me if I would do him the honor of being his girlfriend and join him on the journey of discerning marriage together. We got our chastity/promise rings blessed together to remind us of our commitment to each other and to Christ. We’ll write a longer post later about our story, because it is so beautiful and we want to spend our last night together before he has to leave tomorrow evening.

God has drawn us together and remains the cornerstone of all we do and are. He makes all things new.


“In this grand world, with all of its secrets and wonders, we found each other. Isn’t that beautiful? Isn’t that mysterious? We are so small and the world is so big, yet, we found each other.” // T.B. LaBerge

Oh, how these words convey a beautiful truth. I can’t believe it’s already been one year since we chose to embark on this beautiful journey of life together. Thank you for always pointing me to Christ and for giving me the strength to hope and love. Loving you and being loved by you has made me grow and helped me become the man God is calling me to be. You have taught me how to be selfless and I am forever grateful. How wonderful is it to exist in a world with you in it. I am so humbled to be at your side and to have you at mine. I now understand how home can be not a place, but a person.

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI once said that “the one who has hope lives differently; the one who hopes has been granted the gift of a new life.” Thank you for giving me hope again. Thank you for reminding me it is okay to love and to hope with my entire being. Because of you, I live differently. Because of Christ in you, I have new life.

This past year has been my favorite adventure. Happy 1 year anniversary, beloved. :) I love you to the moon and back. ❤️
