One Month:


Today is one month of being married for me and my handsome husband.
It has been a huge blessing so far, and we are so thankful to be family and to be building our lives WITH each other.
It’s the best feeling to know that wherever we go in life, whatever decisions we make, we will do it together.

Love that.

It’s been so fun this past month to just enjoy all the learning that comes with living with someone for the first time, figuring out how we work together, and finding out weird quirky things you didn’t know about the other person until all of the sudden you LIVE with them!  :)
It’s all good stuff though, and we love being married.

Our prayer for our marriage, especially in this first year as we build a good and firm foundation on Christ for the rest of our marriage, and for our someday family, is this passage in Romans.

“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

We got our wedding photos back from our photographer this weekend!  Lindsey Farho Photography did an awesome job and got some great photos for us that we LOVE!

I love this man to pieces, and it is such a joy to realize you are falling more in love each day.
To many more months, and many many more years…..:)

Life can change real quick, that’s for sure!
When I blogged last, I was a single woman, in Nebraska……And now- married for over 2 weeks and settled into our new home in Alaska!  

I feel like I have a lot of catching up to do about all the new things in the last few weeks- so I will hit the highlights with some photos, and call it good till next time!  
We had a lovely wintery wedding day- which unfortunately kept a few people from coming due to bad weather…..but it really was a pretty day (okay, pretty blizzardy, but still).  Everything went really great, and it was for sure a special day.  It was an intimate wedding…short, sweet, and to the point with a lot of our family and friends there to celebrate!  I will say, we felt very loved!  Having people come out to a wedding, even having to drive a long ways, or fly to come just to be there is really special!  Saying our vows meant a lot to us, and having people we care about there to witness it was so special!  
Highlights: wearing my dress that I totally loved. having my dad walk me down the aisle to a beautiful piano song by enya. letting adam see me in my dress for the first time when i was walking down the aisle. having four beautiful bridesmaids stand up with me.  having adam’s dad marry us.  my brother david playing “cornerstone” by hillsong while we took communion.  finishing the ceremony and realizing we are MARRIED!  celebrating over coffee and punch with all our guests. 
What a special celebration of commitment!  



Ryan, Sarah, Amy, Adam  :)  Happy couples!




With my sweet niece Lydia!  




With my three sisters!



With my friend Emily!


Adam and I were sitting on our couch a couple days ago, in our little house here in Alaska, and reading back through old texts and journal entries from when we first began our story….a year and a half ago.  I definitely cried, seeing how God showed us grace through the hard and unsure times in our relationship to bring us to where we are now……The Hodgdon’s  :)  Couldn’t be happier :)
