I need a little more of this in my life…

Have you ever seen such a gorgeous day?!

It’s 70 degrees here in Oxford and I could not be having a better day! It’s amazing how a little sunshine can make you in such a great mood.

AND because of the amazing weather, Kennie decided to ride his motorcycle down here and meet me for a picnic : )

Can’t wait to go put on my sundress and ride around with kennie enjoying this incredible day!

Thank you Jesus for this special blessing : )

Here is the latest from my watercolor class…

Hope you get the chance to make a memory today.

We’re engaged!!!

It’s official! Kennie finally popped the question : )  Here are some pictures of our wonderful day together:

He blind folded me and took me to this gorgeous picnic spot on the lake.


I love him.


We had a lovely picnic lunch with my favorite sandwich, cake, and flowers. (he knows me well!)


Then he said “I read something about you in the Bible the other day…”

Proverbs 31:10-12; 29-30

10 A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.

11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.

12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

He read all of it out of my new Bible with my new almost name on it : )


And then, the moment we have all been waiting for (especially me!)…




Obviously, I said yes.

We’re so in love.


Now for the wedding planning to officially begin!
