I’m thankful that I get to spend the rest of my life with him. I can’t imagine not having him in my life & I would wait another 5, 10, 15 years if it meant ending up with him in the end.

When Jon proposed, it was THE BIGGEST surprise ever & the best day ever! I’ve been patiently waiting for and praying for and beyond excited for that moment. You can read our proposal story on the super rad HOW HE ASKED blog! & follow along here as I count down to my wedding day!

P.S. I don’t think this is necessary (because it’s quite clear how amazing these pictures are) but our photographer is THE BEST & i’m so excited for her to photograph all the special days in mine & Jon’s life. Check out Katie Boink Photography and Design!

The Pastel Fox : Why Start A Blog In The First Place

Time goes by so fast & i’ve realized that if I don’t intentionally make note of every day it passes by me before I even know it was there. My intentions with this blog are not to add another thing to my to-do list, nor gain a bigger following, nor even feel better about myself. The purpose of this blog is to CONNECT. Connect with people, inspire people, meet people, challenge myself to create, & use the talents God has given me to bless others.

One day I hope to look back through it all &…

  • I hope I see how wonderful life really was.
  • I hope it displays all the fun things I was creating & doing.
  • I hope I find that I shared everything with everyone.
  • I hope it reminds me to take a deep breath… that everything will be ok.
  • I hope I find that I was real.

What if we simply just looked for the beauty of every day, would we find it? Even in the midst of our day to day (sometimes mundane) lives can we find the beauty & magic of it all? What is the key…

  • Gratefulness?
  • Passion?
  • Excitement?
  • Love?

Whatever it is, I choose to find it everyday. I choose to make the most of what i’ve been given. I choose to embrace life. I choose to meet as many people as possible, inspire, & be inspired. I choose to be happy.
