Someone is sad too be leaving ... Thank you, my love for celebrating 27 of life together with me. From falling in loving, raising a family, building a business, and weathering the storms together.
I couldn’t have asked God for a better friend, husband, father to our children and business partner. His to the next 27 years .:. #marriage#lifepartners#friendship#couplegoals#love

I am learning new things about myself...
Things I thought I’d already figured out
I thought that I had ALL the answers when the application of life was filled out...
But little did I know,
there would be different seasons of life..
Where the answers that were correct when I first applied are no longer right
And I’m scratching the side of my head trying to understand what changed because the questions life keeps asking are still the exact same
And in that I realize there is no way to fail;
if you keep trying and applying yourself .
Life is a series of tests and really, there is no wrong way
The difference is that when we submit our applications we will forever be attached to our names.
If I could speak for me alone, I know for a fact that I have failed more than I have won
But the good news about all of the times I failed,
I am still NOT DONE.
So I’ll apply myself again
I’ll answer to life with a resounding YES!
I’ll keep seeking out the answers whenever life chooses to give me a test .
I’ll do with a positive attitude,
knowing that the answers are based on my own perspective.
And trust that as long as I try and give it my all,
even if I fall short I will never regret it
Side note: Makeup (practiced by me) lol

My phone hasn’t stopped ringing for this wedding walk in we’re doing Wednesday March 4th 7pm @dontmissabeatevents ! Come hang with us and see some amazing things we can do for you on your special day!
Two of the biggest issues within marriage are assumption and unmet expectations.
You are not your spouse and the are not you! You are two entities who think differently but have one vision.
Your differences should unify you, and not divide. #spiritfilledmarriage #marriage #marriageworks #Makeitwork

Happy birthdays to these two! Hers was yesterday and his is tomorrow— how fun! 🌻🥂🌻
What does LOVE mean to you.❤️🤍❤️ Ryan and I celebrated Valentine’s Day last week by indulging in sushi and great conversation. Having a deep, long conversation is a little more challenging these days.
I literally don’t know how but we starting talking about love. For those of you who don’t know our relationship timeline, Ryan bought me a toothbrush after our third date, we bought our house 4 months after we met and were engaged just over a year knowing each other.
Most called us crazy (we were and obviously didn’t care). Ryan and I openly talk about how we made big ass life decisions when we were drunk on LOVE. We both agree that people really shouldn’t make decisions that quickly and time is necessary. We both got freakin lucky. Maybe it was a large part gut feeling or maybe it was because we both had enough past experience to “know”. Was it fate? Was it timing? Will it last? How do you know?
We also think infatuation/love only last about 6-18months, and if you’re crazy in love years later well...you’re faking it.
We joked about how lovers are so unproductive. You wanna stay in bed all day, not go to work, talk to that person all the time and not do anything else. TRUE? What could people actually get done long term?
We also don’t believe there is only one person for you out there. We think you could live a fulfilled life with many different people.
This was one of the first conversations so specific to love post children. I was actually relieved to hear him say that he’s not madly in love me. He respects me. I’m his partner. We are making it work.
The key thing here is that we communicate. We connect. We try to understand why we are the way we are. We are not perfect. But here in 2020 we are choosing each other.
How’s that for love! Did I get ya thinking?
I Love you Ryan Lyn and I’m choosing you!! To all my married couples; choosing someone over and over again is much sexier than being drunk on love. To all my single friends; no person will ever make you 100% happy or feel complete but I hope you find your person soon🖤
I left the deep post for a couple days after vday!! You’re welcome. #marriage#postpartum#marriagelife#parenting
You hear growing up, life’s not fair, life is hard, time goes by faster than you think. Basically anything adults can think of to soften the blow of reality.
By the time I was pregnant with this little one, I was probably in my darkest place. I had a beautiful life. Healthy children, marriage, a roof over my head, and support from irreplaceable friends + family.
I was still thrown with some curve balls. My marriage wasn’t in a solid place. I still wasn’t healed from my miscarriage. I don’t think you ever are fully healed from something of that magnitude. That trickled in all aspects of my life. I was constantly trying to make myself feel better with material things. Pulling away from those closest to me. Just trying to put on a brave face and keep going. I had already had two kids depending on me.
The day I had Gwen, I was filled with more emotions than I ever could have expected. She shined a bright light into my heart that had been dark for long.
Babies don’t fix problems in your life. They don’t fix marriages. In fact, I think they make them harder. They do however offer you unconditional love. They fill your life with joy. Messy, sticky, crazy joy.
Happiest Birthday to my amazing Husband!!! You are an incredible father & Jack and I are so lucky!!! We love you with all of our hearts & we are excited to make this the best day for you. This will be your best year yet! Happy Birthday my Love! Happy Birthday Daddy! ❤️💙

I hope she doesn’t mind me sharing this...but we’re taking it back to almost 16 years ago for #tbt .
The friendships I’ve made over this past decade and a half are unlike any other. We all have a sick sense of humor, a way to make it through our days, we’ve been married, divorced, had kids, grandkids, lost loved ones and gained a new perspective. This amazing friend of mine and I are making plans to see one another very soon! It’s been way too long @22carmella and I can’t wait to see your beautiful face! Thank you for sharing this picture of us...I was only 24 years old!!! We had no idea what our future had in store for us...but I’ve loved every minute!.
Make those plans to see your friends and family...and hold yourself to em!! So often, I make plans and break plans. I need to get out to Wyoming, Texas and Indiana to see my three best friends who all moved away. I’m starting to think it’s me! 😂.

Sometimes the thing we want the most is painfully out of reach. Infertility is an issue that plagues many couples and can be a heart-breaking thing to deal with. According to the CDC’s National Survey of Family Growth, 1 in 8 couples (or 12% of married women) have difficulty getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. In this episode, Melissa and Hannah interview Melissa’s friend Marissa, and hear her personal journey with infertility, fertility treatments and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). How do you wrap your brain around your own infertility when you want a baby more than anything? What kind of toll does it take on your body, your marriage and your savings account? What options are out there for couples who are having difficulty conceiving in this modern day? How can we normalize this discussion and help those who are looking for answers and most of all, hope? Please join us for a wonderful conversation about this very personal subject, and more, in this episode of ATKAIB. ⭐️⭐️LINK IN BIO ⭐️⭐️ Episode 18 – Its So Hard When It Doesn’t Come Easy – Stories About Fertility Treatments And IVF
He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave our sins. ⭐️Ephesians 1:7
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that he will see himself how You see him - forgiven, chosen, and made new in Christ. In the beautiful and wonderful name of Jesus I pray, Amen.🤍
In 2012 Bronnie Ware published a book about the top regrets of the dying based on what she learned from those in palliative care. One of the five things that emerged over and over was people wishing that they had shared their feelings with others. We can assume that those at the end of life have something to teach us about living, now. Instead of waiting until the end to feel the regret of what we didn’t say, we can say how we feel, now. Whenever I remind people of this I usually hear one or both of the following things: yes, and “but it is so awkward, what if I make it weird”. It is weird- uncomfortable, awkward, foreign- all of it. That is not because it is bad, but because we are out of practice. The sad truth is that we are missing out on what really matters, to avoid a totally survivable uncomfortable feeling, all while most of us are longing to know we exist in the minds of others, to know we are thought of and valued by those we also love. Call someone, send a card, write an email, text, leave a voicemail: let your people know they matter to you. Remind yourself, and them, in the process, that you have what makes this life worth all the uncertainty- the reminder that we don’t have to do any of it alone, the pain, the joy, and all the things in between. #friendship#communication#goals#mentalhealth#connection#community#marriage#family#health#healing#showinglove#love#loveyou#lovethem#meaning#whatmattersmost#regret
Do you ever feel "needy" or try to talk yourself out of relationship needs that come up? ⠀
It's easy to feel like we are too needy or are expecting too much from our partner. We often get messages like, "don't seem too needy" or "if you're too needy you'll scare them away." These messages can lead us to a place where we hide or feel shame about our needs and end up pulling away from our partner. ⠀
Research shows that our brains are wired for connection and these needs we feel are HEALTHY. Knowing this can give us permission to have those needs and motivate us to communicate them to our partner and work on meeting those needs TOGETHER.⠀
Comment a 🧡 if this is something that's difficult for you too. ⠀
