Overjoyed doesn’t begin to describe my feelings about finally sharing this news with you all. For this child, I have prayed...and prayed, and cried, and had some very dark days, and learned to trust my body, and rejoiced as we saw that beautiful, strong heart beat together with Charlie in the room as well. Pregnancy after loss comes with so many waves of emotions, and I keep needing to remind myself that it’s ok to breathe, and it’s ok to be happy, and that anxiety is a big fat liar. So, here we are with a rainbow baby (or “little bean” as Charlie called it when he saw the ultrasound) coming our way in early June! 💛💛💛#babyappleseed #junebug #littlebean #8weekspregnant #tinymiracle #rainbowbaby
That first dance hold 😍
These two will be on the blog this week and I can’t wait to show you!! 🙌
& yet another gorgeous autumnal engagement shoot! Look at those gorgeous colours 😍🍂🍁 having a couple as cute as these two helps too ☺️
Danyelle made a stunning bride this past weekend 😍
Are you spending more time preparing for your marriage, or preparing for your wedding? 💕 I remember wedding planning well, since we only got married 2 years ago. I remember feeling overwhelmed by all I had to coordinate, plan, & purchase. 🙈😅 Yet I’m so thankful for the people who spoke into my life during that season & reminded me to focus much more on planning for and preparing for my marriage than my actual wedding day. Yes- make sure there are enough chairs, that the invitations get sent out on time, that your dress fits… but we were encouraged that all those things should come secondary to the preparation we were doing for our marriage. I already knew that the most important thing about our wedding was not the day or the details; it was the fact that I was marrying my best friend… but there is a point where you have to practice what you’re preaching, and that’s what they encouraged us to do. ❤️ We did premarital counseling through our awesome church, and we also read some books together and talked through a lot of awesome & hard questions and decisions, and we believe those are SUCH important things to do to prepare for marriage. We did all those things like deciding where you’ll live and who will do what responsibility around our new home. 🏠 We made sure we were prioritizing our relationship WHILE we were wedding planning. We prayed or and over our future marriage often. Here's the thing: The time you invest in preparing for your marriage before your wedding will not only set you up for success in your marriage, but it will also form the habit of pouring into your marriage BEFORE you’re even married. 🙌🏻 (Because surprise… praying for your marriage and investing time into growing your marriage does not stop when your engagement does!! 😉) So yes- plan your wedding, sweet bride. Plan the heck out if it if that’s your thing. (I LOVED it!) Have all the flowers, make sure your dress is exactly what you’ve always dreamed of, and freak out in excitement over the florals. SOAK UP this time. But don’t forget that at the end of the day & the details, there’s a brand new marriage waiting for you. Be ready. ☺️💖
Happy 9th birthday to my middle...Grady James! The day you were born was the hardest challenge of my life. When your platelets are too low and you have to deliver your 9lb baby boy naturally. 😱 You have continued to prove that you are always my biggest challenge of life...but you are also the most loving and compassionate boy I know. 💙💙💙 I love you so much, Gray-My rough, crazy, dirty, lovebug! I’m so lucky that I get to be your Momma!! You make my heart so happy!

Wow... those eyes!!! I have known Henk my whole life and seeing him so purely in love with another beautiful soul is SO enchanting! Can we also take a moment to appreciate how all the colours in this picture adds to the mesmerizing effect of her eyes?!
Happy Tuesday, my Unicorns!
There isn’t much sweeter than looking over mid (300th) diaper change and seeing this sweet girl reading herself a book.. the past few days have been really tiring.. if I’m being honest, downright exhausting.. between attempting to get Nola on a feeding/sleep schedule and trying to keep Ev entertained and happy while I’m nursing, changing diapers and consoling cries... I feel like I’m running on E.. I’ve been feeling so guilty.. I just don’t have the time.. or the energy or really the mobility yet to do it all.. trying hard to let go, and let God... but it’s been difficult... but this, this right here added just the right amount of sweetness I needed to push on through the day.. it’s that simple.. #doingthisforthem #mybabies #evelynjune #junebug #almosttwo #tiredmama #fullheart #sewnizhoni #sewnizhoniandfriends #halloweenbow

I will always remember this as the wedding with the BEST speeches EVER!! There are no words I can write that will make you two unique souls feel more special or loved. Andrea & Duncan, thank you for challenging me in new ways! You truly are colourful Unicorns in this sometimes dull world we live in.
