Another milestone for us back on October 2nd! We had the blessing of having our marriage sealed for not only time, but for ETERNITY! This is a very sacred part of our religion. We were married civilly a little over a year ago, and have been waiting for this very important ordinance to happen since then.
Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. There was so much said and spoken about that hit so deeply and was so profound! Those words will FOREVER be etched in our memories.
When I look back at my life these past several years, it’s absolutely amazing to me that I’m where I am. NEVER NEVER NEVER in a million years would I have thought that I would be remarried and living in Southern Utah with this INCREDIBLE man! It has been quite an unbelievable journey for me. Another milestone for us and perhaps one of THE MOST IMPORTANT ones yet!
On sort of a related note……..
Today I was doing a photo shoot here in Arizona for a brand, and a lady yelled out to me….. “HEY…. do you have an instagram and blog where you talk about fashion, and that’s your husband. You guys fell in love…. he takes your pictures!!!” I mean she knew so much about me it felt a little strange! She asked if she could take a picture with me so she could send it to her sister.
Again….. I would have NEVER thought a few years back, that I would be someone that other women would look to for inspiration, NOT EVER!
After we were done with the pictures I went and chatted with her for awhile. She is sixty as well, and such an advocate for LIVING YOUR LIFE and MAKING IT WHAT YOU WANT! She too, had been in a bad marriage and finally took ahold of that situation and has now put herself in a much better place.
We talked about women being afraid to leave, the fear of being the bread-winner, the disruption to their children, their pride, and being alone! I was ALL of those! As I sat there talking to her, I was so filled with gratitude that I was where I was in my life.
I hope you all are well and KNOW that you are VALUED!
