What the Lord is teaching me about my battle with self-pity.
A letter to my husband on our 2nd Anniversary.
The Truth Behind our 1st PCS Orders
April 4, 2015 was one of my favorite days. William Fine and I were "finelly" husband and wife... which also meant we were finally saying goodbye to long distance! We left our wedding reception that night, proudly displaying a banner that represented just that. October 7, 2016, was another one of my favorite days. William Fine was "finelly" home from his first … Continue reading The Tables Have Turned
The whole month of September I was asked, "So... do you feel like it went by quickly?" (For those of you who are new here: they're refering to The Deployment).

Four months later and I still find myself reading those fading words at least once a day. It feels like … Continue reading Deployment (Dis)Contentment
The New Year was off to a fun and hopeful start. I felt giddy walking away from a long year of change and into (what I expected to be) a season of comfort, knowing that I was finally on the other side of frequent tears. When I ended my last blog post with… “2016, you … Continue reading Expect the Unexpected
It’s hard to believe we just celebrated 6 months of marriage. 6 wonderful months as husband and wife… and I hear it only gets better. Thank you, Jesus. As we were reminiscing about that sweet day in April, so many emotions flooded my heart. I hope I never forget how special that day was, how … Continue reading Don’t Break the Wedding Budget! | 6 Ways to Save Money
