Our Story.

It was not too long ago I was walking away from everything. From my family, God and everything I grew up to believe. It was that same time, Christian was going through his own journey with a similar story. We both were fighting what we knew was true to only to replace it with empty things. For me, I went through a time where God and life just all seemed to not make sense anymore. I did not see eye to eye with my family. I put my energy in things that brought me further and further away from God. Everyday I felt so lost, and alone. There was a point in this journey where God shook me. I had the strongest conviction in the way I was living and that it wasn't where I wanted my life to head. I knew that I was pushing God away, but He never gave up on me. That was when I left California to be with my dear friend Ica in the beautiful state of Virginia to clear my head from all that mess. I would bike to this beautiful lake and just think about everything. That was where I found God again, a peace in my heart, and the deep yearning to be in his grace. God brought along Christian whom I have known since childhood. Who felt the hurts and pain I felt. Who pointed me back to Christ and became my best friend. It was there at that lake in Virginia where Christian flew us out three years later and surprised me. Where Christian went down on his knees to ask me to be his wife in the most perfect way.

I am beyond grateful to God for being good in my life,
and giving me an amazing Fiance who I love and adore.

a quick recap

(photo taken in paris, france)
i've been quite behind in documenting our european adventure! with our job, husband and i have been called back onto the road or jet setting to and from. right now i'm sitting in starbucks in northern california waiting for the husband. 3 weeks ago we were munching on warm baguettes and hot cocoa under the eiffel tower. a week and a half ago we were tasting fine wines from napa valley and eating mouth watering honey lavender ice cream in san fransisco. five days ago we were venturing the beautiful terrain of endless fields in upstate new york. and now were coasting up the 101 north breathing in the pacific breeze in this warm weather. it has been unbelievably busy but so surreal. husband and i keep pinching ourselves and think, were so grateful to God to have this job we get to enjoy together, experience together, and learn together. and yes i do have endless photos to post...oui oui!

we spent four days in this ever so warm and lovely city. we enjoyed waking up to the chime of church bells ringing in the bright morning, strolling down the breezy mediterranean seaside, smells of warm baguettes in the city street, cheery locals and tourists busying throughout the city, narrow alleyways of rustic architecture, and the free-spirited feelings husband and i felt as we enjoyed our time away in this beautiful foreign land. incredibly grateful for this experience. and incredibly in love with our God who made our world so intricate, unique, and big.

hola sagrada familia!

husband and i spent our lovely time here in barcelona, spain. we visited breath-taking sites by the amazingly talented gaudi. i love his beautiful archetectural artistry, specifically at this one particular spot...sangrada familia.
his art portrayed the brilliance of his mind, with every little detail symbolizing the glorious story of the gospel...
almost every detail, in shape and form, of the sagrada familia was influenced by nature,
husband and i ventured up to the highest point in the church and overlooked a magnificent view of this beautiful city.
every step of the way, husband and i kept wide-eyed to every beautiful detail that was put into this monumental church. telling a magnificently beautiful story of God and his people. this has to be one of the best things i ever saw in person, truly breathtaking. then on we went to explore the oh so lovely barcelona, spain. to and fro rummaging our new found love for warm baguettes and tapas, to warm greetings from locals, treasuring old architecture, splashing in the warm waves of the mediterranean sea, and blissfully enjoying each little moment with my love. more to come!
