I Am

saved by grace.
addicted to coffee.
getting married to the best man alive.
looking at a beautiful bouquet of wildflowers that the aformentioned man sent to my work- just to brighten my day!
never going to have a pet.
a mama's and daddy's girl.
pretty well-traveled for a 23 year old, but always wanting more.
a shameless wine-o.
blessed with some amazing friends.
a life-long student.
sunshine and summertime.
into any and all bright colors. jared, be prepared to have a house full of orange and teal walls :)
a strange mix of intro and extrovert
as my grandma would say, "a faceful of teeth".
never too full for dessert.
a musician.
in love with Nantucket Island and the summer of 2010.
a Christ follower who is daily learning to rely on the Lord.

My wedding photographer and friend Gladys Jem Allen inspired me to write this blog. Boom Boom!

168 is not that special of a number. I doubt that many people claim that 168 is a lucky or favorite number. 168 doesn't categorize anything- not like 365, 12, or 24 do. Most people probably never think anything of the number 168.

168 was never a significant number to me, until today. Today I started a countdown. That countdown tells me that there are 168 days until August 19th.

In 168 days, I will be getting married. In 168 days, I will be marrying my best friend and the best man I know. In 168 days, I will stand before God and take vows to stand by this wonderful man for the rest of my life.

I love the number 168.
