Turning this house into our very own home.
Endless hours of work, countless bicep curls, sweat and no tears YET! It’s been quite an adventure so far and we still got a long way to go. But we can’t wait to finish these DIY renos. Looking forward to looking back and feeling proud of taking this challenge upon ourselves, on top of our full time jobs AND planning our wedding. Just shows that we are the dream team and can conquer absolutely anything!
Huge thanks to our family and friends for offering your time and help along the way. Our home is your home and we can’t wait to build countless memories here with you. .
“The most beautiful people we have known, are those who have known defeat, known struggling, known suffering, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a loving concern.” - Elizabeth Kubler Ros
Beautiful people don’t just happen; they are made.
I’m not as active on FB as I am on Insta, but I get messages weekly from young women, sometimes men, who ask me how I’m more alive now than I was 5 months ago. The truth is, I really did die the day they took me to the hospital. Or better yet, my old life ended and a new life began. There’s something unexplainably miraculous about facing death and being transformed. I’m great full that God held me as my mind fought its hardest battle. Mental health is so important. The neuro-Surgeon who was in the OR with me told me, “Something inside you would not allow you to die. The tests and monitors all pointed towards certain death, but something inside you refused to accept that as the final verdict. Had you not been mentally strong... we would have lost you.” I don’t need anyone to tell me that my life has a purpose. I know it does, that’s the goodness of God right there. I don’t take any magic pills or have any magical procedures to explain why I came out of that trauma stronger than I went in. The only answer I have is simply that this, was all God.
I’ll stumble, I’ll fall, maybe even scrape a knee or two. But I’ve been in a battle, I fought the fight, I won the war. I have plenty of more experiences to have and not all of them will be lovely. However, this I know is true- Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. And with that truth I move on, move forward and train for the next storm.
Regardless of hardships in my life that I battle, my life couldn’t be better. First collage is my little family I am blessed with. Second collage is my family and friends that keep me going. I am over the moon happy with my life and everyone in it. I couldn’t live the life I have without all of these people. #grateful#blessed

Eu tenho pensado nas pessoas que me somam. Naquelas que perdem seu tempo e energia comigo, insistindo de várias formas, para que o meu riso seja constante e as preocupações pequenas. Naquelas pessoas que me pegam pela mão e me ajudam a atravessar abismos. Eu tenho pensado nas pessoas que fazem abrigo no coração, pra eu morar. Naquelas que tecem milhares de sorrisos no meu rosto. Naquelas que constroem inúmeras certezas em cima do meu medo. Naquelas que falam bonito, depois de uma tempestade emocional desabafar sobre o meu quintal. Naquelas que plantam pés de esperança, no vaso de entrada, pra encantar meu olhar. Àquelas pessoas que não desistem da gente, Eu agradeço. ❤
**Disclaimer: the bottom pic is NOT my girlie, but how bad it gets** This momma needs some help! My girlie has severe eczema and I feel so helpless!! After another bout of applying cream to keep her skin soft and her screaming because of how bad it stings...EVERYTHING seems to trigger flare ups and I just don't even know what to feed he anymore. Any advice?? Please!
