|Our First Date :)|
Nearly a year ago, I had no idea I was going to fall head over heals in love with Rusty when I agreed to this first date. But I knew I was allowed to exercise my independence. I knew I was honoring my heart in waiting until a judge who is a perfect stranger to me declared it official. And I had spent the year and a half before that date, living on my own and working on my heart and healing. Now, that man who took me on a first date on July 7, 2017 is marrying me in just 93 days. He's changing my name in 3 months and I'm continually blessed by his heart for the Lord, for me and for Liam.
Happy Independence day, friends. I hope you remember the bravery of those who have fought hard and those who continue to fight for us to be where we are today... and I hope you can find a fighting bravery within yourself to be proud of who you are, where you came from, and where you are going. Its hard and its vulnerable. First comes vulnerability, then comes freedom.
