I believe love connects two kindred spirits and nourishes the soul. I believe in the heart’s desire for adventure and the longing to wander. I believe a life filled with love should include windblown tousled hair, long car rides up the mountain side and wanderlust feet dipped in the river. I believe in cozy mornings: slow, thoughtful, and rich with the smell of fresh coffee brewing. Snuggled up close, hands playfully intertwined, and nestled softly in the space between his arm and chest. A place you call home.

I believe when he holds you, you feel the comfort of what it means to be loved, and to be loved deeply. When he embraces you, when he kisses you, when he looks into your soul and sees you, your lovely heart knows peace. I believe love encompasses far more than affection. It is the art of choosing each other over and over again, and doing so with a heart anchored in love, full of excitement for the wild adventures that await you.

I am an adventure seeker and a lover of people. I come alive when I am free to wander and explore: to feel the earth under my fingertips, the force of mountain winds, and the current pushing past me as I wade through winding rivers. I’ve felt the cool water of glacial lakes and by sunrise I was hours away, breathing in warm desert air. It is in the spontaneity and globe trotting that I am carefree and wholly at ease. 
In the depths of my being I know unconditional love because of the man to whom I gave my heart 8 years ago, Caleb. Since then my life has been full of inside jokes, playful cuddles and dreams for our life together. We made the decision a long time ago to choose each other, always, and that has allowed us to love in a way that could never be shaken.  We tell each other in the sweet, quiet moments and in the fierce ones,“I will love you always,” and it is in that choice that we have built our life together. 
I am able to create because I honor the creator in me. I am able to love because I have been shown an unwavering love that nourishes my soul in new ways each day. In our free-spirited nature we have found life, we have found love, we have found ourselves. And it is because I am rooted in warmth and compassion that my heart is full; full of life, full to love, and full to give. 

My favorite things

Coffee, sun dresses, the wilderness, tacos, reading, fresh fruit, exploring, and acts of kindness.

I believe connection is about choosing each other over and over again. I believe in the desire for adventure and the choice to wander. I believe a life filled with love should include windblown, tousled hair full of mountain air. With long car rides up the mountain side and with wanderlust feet dipped in the river. With slow mornings sipping hot coffee with your legs draped over his lap, snuggled up close in the space between his arm and chest, a place that was made for you to rest and call home.
I believe that when he holds you, you feel the full weight of what it means to be loved, and to be loved deeply. When he embraces you, when he kisses you, when he looks into your soul and sees you, it’s that kind of love that calms your heart and awakens your wild soul. 
His choice to love you, his decision to choose you, and only you, sets your heart on fire to love life more fully, and to chase adventure in your life together. I believe that marriage is about choosing each other, every day, forever. Together, you are a family and that is what allows you to linger in the profound love you share every day.
