We met five years ago today and my life with you has been the most amazing, unexpected adventure ever since. You were an unemployed nightclub host and I was a lost and unhappy hotel manager, and look how far we’ve come!!! We’ve experienced things together I’d never even dreamed about. We’ve listened to each other and encouraged some of the most outlandish dreams in one another, and work every day to push each other towards them. And the best part to me is that we’ve become parents to not one but (almost!) two perfect beautiful babies that we’ll get to raise with the same never-quit, dream as big as you want mindset and sense of outrageous adventure that we have both flourished together in. I love you so much @tonypaoli7, thank you for making me better with every day of these last 5 years.
I think we found a new Christmas tradition! Baking and crafts followed by The Polar Express 😄. We made slow cooker mulled wine along with White Chocolate-cranberry-orange, Apple Pie, and Gingerbread cookies 🥰🎄
My forever wedding date. 🖤
I’ve been extra thankful for this one lately. I wouldn’t have been able to launch Rad+Thrift without his support. He’s designed materials for me, built structures for the market, gone on several solo grocery shopping trips, and cooked 95% of our meals. He’s been completely understanding of the late nights and is just generally delightful to live with (on account of all the flossing attempts), even when it’s busy and stressful. I’ve got it made, y’all. 🌞 I’m just thankful.
A família Silva também é minha família. Eles me acolheram com tanto amor, zelo e sinceridade, não imaginava que poderíamos ser tão queridos por eles em um mundo tão cheio de relações supérfluas. Sobrenome não será importante se não houver pilares para existência de um vínculo forte e duradouro.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ao recebermos o para sermos padrinhos ficamos tão eufóricos, felizes ao extremo pois sabíamos que a responsabilidade não seria apenas pela cerimônia, mas um compromisso que assumiriamos por um longo tempo. Padrinhos para cuidar espiritualmente, psicologicamente e pessoalmente.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A minha alegria por sua conquista fez parecer que o casamento era o meu! A sensação gostosa de acompanhar vocês e estar sempre de braços abertos pra os ajudarem no que precisar sempre me acompanharão. Isso sim é ser padrinho!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Meu cuidado com você não diminui a intensidade por causa da distância, eu sempre estarei aqui pra abraçar essa família com o meu coração.⠀
Desejo que esse casal tenha toda a sorte de bençãos, que haja abundância de Deus, que essa aliança nunca tenha um fim, que o início seja sempre a motivação para continuarem juntos e fortes e que possam viver ajudando, sempre, um ao outro a crescerem. Amo muito vocês! Novamente, o meu muito obrigada por esse privilégio. ❤️💍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pleased to say that the week is ending a bit better than it began. Jeez Louise it’s all been a bit bonkers in our house, everything has felt fragile and scary and emotions have been running sky bloody high. @this_is_dave_today and I have been soooooo disconnected which obviously makes everything feel even more hopeless. It felt as though we’d forgotten how to communicate..how to truly hear what the other was saying. Both so bloody empty that we’ve had nothing left to give. So we enlisted some help today (thank you @luciahermida86 ❤️) and took ourselves off. Cinema first - Bohemian Rhapsody (amazing) then a roast and wine at our local. Got home to the kids still running amok but I handled it better than I have done every other night this week - nerves a tad less jangly and shredded then they were this morning. STILL waiting to step into the Christmas zone and exhale a bit but I’m almost there. Sending a huge virtual hug to anyone else whose been feeling like they’re just about hanging on.. ❤️❤️... here’s to a happy, frazzled free week ahead xxxx
This bloat is real! We had the best time in Gatlinburg this weekend. We ate all the good food, tasted the moonshine and all the wines. We relaxed and explored. It was so needed before the hustle of Christmas time! But holy moly am I so excited to do a cleanse over the next 3 days and sweat out all of the extra fun after an event at church this evening! Balance is key!
What did you do this weekend?
