I am an adventure seeking wife and mother first! Travel, and endorphins are my best friends. I will try anything once, unless I know
I would be in danger. I have a crazy love of God, running, triathlon, the outdoors, dirt, wine, friends, good Vegan food, Yoga,
animals, happiness, and life! I truly believe the only limits in life are the ones set by ourselves. So get out there and expand the limits!!

Every day a Valentine



Love is….

A fiery sunset that you watch together
A road trip full of adventure and laughter
Making sand footprints for each other to follow to the heart drawn on the beach
Staring into one another’s eyes and feeling like you could jump into their liquid blue and swim forever
Giggling into the wee hours of the morning in bed
Cooking together
Coffee first thing in the morning
Still blushing and butterflies, when he tells you that you look amazing after a sweaty work out
Back rubs and French kisses…and then….. sleep
Summer hikes that lead to skinny-dipping
Silence, but still hearing one another’s hearts
Jumping off the couch, to run outside into a summer rain.  Just to dance in the yard
Sobbing in the shower when you know his flight just took off and you miss him…already
Finding the one person that loves everything you love, and enjoys everything you enjoy
Sweaty hand holding at the movies
Dinner and candles on the floor, by the fireplace
Our children
Your favorite flower, shipped from Europe, because they are out of season in the U.S.  for a special day
Hidden surprises
Sticky notes found around the house
Laughing until your stomach hurts
Food fights
Taking the road less traveled, together
Putting the others needs in front of your own
Extending grace
That perfect nesting place for your forehead when you need a good cry
Slippery showers together
Learning something new together
Forgiving one another for being flawed
Being quick to listen, slow to speak, and slower to become angry
Praying together
Knowing that just around the corner, could be the adventure of a lifetime…and walking around the corner, to hit it head on
A Daddy that will stay up late, tired, after a trip, to rub our daughters feet
Staying up to watch a sunrise
Love making, with reckless abandon
Surprise dinner dates
Forgiving the unforgivable
Someone knowing you almost better than you know yourself
Knowing the right words of comfort to say, when you’ve had a hard day
Trust to the depths of your soul
Flirting with one another
Secrets that you would share with no one else
Being a good spiritual partner
Being spontaneous
Touches that set your skin on fire
Looking at one another like you are the only two people on the planet…. and feeling that way
Inside jokes
Lifting one another up, when you are in the deep end
Silliness
Not caring what anyone else thinks of your passion
Being best friends
Love is: exciting, unconditional, soft, vulnerable, forever
It is: comfortable, sexy, secure, fun and sometimes scary
It’s knowing that this person has walked into your life and made you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.

Knowing wholeheartedly, a love that endures forever

~The word - love - appears 310 times in 280 verses in the Bible.  There’s a reason for this
It’s important
It’s vital
It’s essential


~~Instead of one day…shouldn’t everyday should be Valentines?
