I’m Married!

The last few weeks have been some of the most exciting of my life, and it feels good to be falling into a routine with my new husband. He moved into my place, and we’ve done a lot to make it feel like ours, not just mine. Our wedding was amazing. It was pretty casual, but it was still such a big ordeal! My new sister-in-law, Jessie, coordinated everything for me, which made it easy for me to relax. I still felt stressed leading up to the day because there was so much non-stop attention on me, but I was grateful too. Most people in our lives who love us were all in one place for the weekend, and we made memories that I’ll definitely carry with me for a lifetime. It was cool to see our families together too, and we all danced the night away. Even my mom cut a rug for a few minutes thanks to my sister and one of my uncles. Dad was here for a week, which was nice. I get to see everyone else pretty regularly, so it was a treat to spend time with Dad. He was really flexible too, which I […]

I’m Getting Married Next Week!

I know I’ve said it already, but I’m getting married next week!!!!!!! Have I ever told you how we met? I shared the short version on our wedding website,, but I thought I’d share it here too since this site is permanent. The end of 2015 was a time of change and growth for Michael and me individually. In early December I told God that I was tired of hearing myself whine to Him about wanting to be in a healthy relationship with a Godly man. I said to God, “You know my heart, and You gave me these desires. I’m surrendering them to you right now. This is not my biggest prayer anymore. I want to fulfill your purpose, and so be enough for me. Satisfy me.” The next day Michael walked into my church for the first time. I didn’t meet him that weekend, but over the next few months I would greet him on Sunday mornings when he walked in. In February we both joined a Bible study group, and a few weeks in I jokingly admitted that pizza had been my Valentine that year. Later during the same group he mentioned that pizza was his Valentine […]

I Got Married… SURPRISE!


This past weekend on 4.26.14, I married the love of my life, Rachel, at Parkwood Gardens Church in Guelph, Ontario Canada. What was intended to be a tiny civil ceremony at the courthouse, ended up being a mini-wedding at a church, followed by a lovely lunch with family.

It was such a beautiful, simple service. Rachel’s mom and dad walked her down the aisle, then we said our “I will’s”, exchanged vows, put on the rings, had communion, then signed the marriage license and church registry. After the service, we gathered everyone together for an awesome group photo:
