Starting something new can be so nerve-wracking. But, the start can be a beautiful place! If you feel a tug to get out of your comfort zone and start something new, just do it! It’s okay to not be an expert; you’re new! 🌟 #startnew#bebrave
Happy anniversary to the sweetest man I’ve ever known. Even when I don’t deserve it, you sacrifice so much to make sure I’m always taken care of. I can’t thank you enough for loving me so well 💚🧡💛❤️ #godgavemeyou#loveyourlovethemost

Thankyou for taking care of mommy ‘👶🏻 daddy, I can’t wait to kiss you 😘- your little heartbeat ❤️ #Thankful2018#Godgavemeyou#blessed#thirdtrimester#pregnancy
I know everyone thinks they have the best relationship, but I know I really, really do. A year ago today my better half asked me to be his wife. To spend the rest of my life laughing, dancing, singing, joking, growing, adventuring, traveling, and working together. How could I say no to that?!? 243 days until I am Clarissa D’Huyvetter and officially part of a family that has treated me like one of their own from day 1. Love doesn’t seem like a big enough word and blessed and thankful don’t even begin to cover it! 💜
I love the way he looks at me! ♥️ This right here is the greatest love anyone could ever know. I’m so in love with this baby boy of mine. I thank God every day he chose me to be his mommy. 😍💕 #Godgavemeyou#Godknewmyheartneededyou
I love him 😍 and God isn’t done ... God will do it again God bless you babe God hold us together that’s why we made it so far only God ... I will keep praying for you to the end and be here for you always ... #proverbs31#Godgavemeyou#pray#dontgiveup 👏🏽❤️💯🔥
I really hope she won't get too mad at me for posting these lol look at that beautiful person, that sweet smile, those green eyes that I get lost in, beautiful red hair! And the flower I just had to give to her, it matched so perfectly with all of her that I knew she needed it! I've never connected so much with someone, and so quickly. You have the purest heart and soul out of anyone I know! I show you off because I want the world to know I've been searching my whole life, and I finally found what I've been looking for... A partner, someone to walk alongside throughout life for as long as you and God will allow. 😊 I show you off and tell the world about you because I've lost so many people, and life is too short to keep it all bottled up! I don't want to hide, ever from anyone. Get some good sleep, I'm praying for you. You have a classroom full of kids looking to you for guidance tomorrow. May you be the fierce leader I know you are! And may God bless your week AMEN! #godgavemeyou
the best part about me will always be these two babes. they are my greatest achievement and biggest contribution to this world. my life and this world would be so different without them in it...and one i haven’t even held in my arms yet. but that’s how strong the bond between a mother and her child is. you love them and protect them even before you know them. & once they’re here, your goal is to raise them up right and to be a better version of yourself so that they will make this world a better place 💙💗
6 years down and lifetime to go with the smartest, kindest, most hilarious and self-less person I know. I’m so blessed to get to call you mine.
Love you all the time… sometimes. 😂
JK, LOVE YOU ALWAYS! 😘
Can’t believe it’s already been exactly 1 week since I was so blessed to marry the woman I’m crazy in love with and who’s my best friend. What an awesome feeling it is to call you my wife and to know that we’re dedicated to sharing this life together! This first week of being married to you has been so much fun it just flew by! If someone asked me before we met if I’d ever be married I would’ve just laughed but now I couldn’t imagine my life any other way. Extremely thankful and definitely loving my new title as your husband @4ever_diezel I love you!! #husbandandwife#justmarried#1week#iloveyou#gorgeous#mybestfriend#myangel#strongertogether#Godgavemeyou
I was taking pictures of the dogs. And took this one of my husband. 🖤❤️ I’m so in love with this man! He’s good. And so good to me. He LOVES me (action)(& shows me with every moment). He’s humble. See that sweet smile on his face? That’s what I love most about him- next to his hands- that hold my own, that lead me and our family. I love the strength and understanding he gives me. In my husband, I have so much confidence and love. I have a lifetime to share with him. I’m grateful God chose Dennis for me.
My no. 1🙌🏻 My kids are my entire world🌎
They are my reason why I keep pushing through any kind of day and just simply handle it🔥
Let me tell you, having a girl has simply made me a better woman HANDS DOWN🙌🏻
I’ve learned to love myself more. I’ve learned to have more patience. I’ve learned how to have my own voice in a world filled with negativity and sometimes just too much hate. .
I’m raising a little lady. And this little lady watches everything I DO💕 I get to teach her to live with passion, how to love ourselves through our best and our worst moments and how to simply “Be your own kind of beautiful”
I’m thankful for you Zeitia, you saved me at a point in my life when I had felt there was nothing left for me to give. .
Let me tell you ‘bout my BEST FRIEND 🎶
She’s my life’s greatest blessing. As a mother, I feel like it’s strictly my job to hold and excel in both the teaching and inspirational roles in our household. I want to be/become the person who I’d wish for as my daughter’s role-model in life.
Let’s be real though, life can become super overwhelming at times. Or for periods of times. Or for the duration of life in general.😜
But seriously, when life becomes overwhelming I am definitely guilty of living less in the “present” moment.
The what-ifs and past memories I allow to take over my thinking do nothing more than eat me up inside. It’s easy to think of worst-case scenarios. It’s easy to think about how I could have said/did things differently. It just seems so easy to worry nonstop. #helloanxiety
It’s easy for me to become so busy with anxious thoughts and self-doubt that I nearly forget my vision. That unexpected detour along my path seems like a never ending roundabout, and I start to falsely believe that it’d be easier to just turn off and head back. That’s life right?
But just when I (again, falsely) believe that I can not take anymore, when I feel like I’m way too exhausted to see how much further this detour has to go, my little sidekick in life will say something that will inspire me enough to snap out of that anxious and doubtful mindset and instantly forces me to regain my vision, my WHY, and allows this crazy, beautifully imperfect journey to be brought back into the correct perspective.

We have walked together for years, through tumultuous seasons of heartbreak and loss, and promising seasons of overflowing joy and fulfillment. After we graduated, we scattered across the country and after 3.5 years, it was finally time for the Core4 to reunite. No occasion could make a better excuse than getting our third girl married off! Tiff & Trev, we are so happy for you, but more than that, we're proud of you. Proud of you for finding and choosing one another, proud of you for how you highlight each other's strengths, proud of you for your consistency in fostering authenticity and community in all you do, in all you are. We'll always be here to lift you up.
SEE YA IN ST. LUCIA! (just kidding, but Tiff invited me on their honeymoon, that's just how great she is.)
3 years ago today Aidyn started at Cornerstone. I’m gonna be honest these last 3 years haven’t been easy on me, the driving 5 days a week an hour away and some days running on just a couple hours of sleep, if any sleep at all. Getting enough courage to leave a toxic and mentally and emotionally abusive marriage was not easy, but it was not only the better decision for myself, but the best decision for Aidyn. I decided to enroll at Ivy Tech, which was a great decision because now I have such big dreams that I want to accomplish and I have plans to make a positive difference in the world, but it hasn’t been easy to balance everything some days.
But I wouldn’t be able do do any of it if it wasn’t for this kid, this kid right here. His empathy for others and gentle heart. His contagious laugh and smile. His wonderful sense of humor. And his brilliant mind and overall self. And the impact that my child has made on others make me beyond proud of who he is and who he is becoming. I am so beyond proud of every accomplishment he has made and the accomplishments he continues to make every single day.
These last 3 years have changed us both and it’s all because of this kid. He truly is changing the world 💚
“Motherhood is about raising and celebrating the child you have, not the child you thought you would have. It's about understanding that he is exactly the person he is supposed to be. And that, if you're lucky, he just might be the teacher who turns you into the person you are supposed to be.” #mylittle#soproudofhim#evenonthebaddays#theresalwaystomorrow#stronglikemom#myentireworld#godgavemeyou#aba#abatherapy#cacwl#autism#hesperfect#autismacceptance#thewatergiver#motherhood
