I am a Christ-follower. I am nothing, nothing without Him. And each day, I live in the wonder and awe of His great grace.

I am the wife of J. We met at the beginning of my sophomore year of college, didn't date till the end of that spring semester, were engaged by June, and married in December of 2011. From dating, to engaged, to married, was a whirlwind of 8 months. We quickly learned marriage isn't easy, but by the grace of God, we have been married 5 years. Each year gets a little sweeter- he gets more handsome, we love each other more, and those vows we spoke become even more sacred to our hearts. My J is rugged, artistic, funny, kind, and godly. He leads our home with integrity and works so hard to provide us with the very best.

Almost 3 years after Mr. and Mrs. Freelen, came our first baby girl, Star. She is our three year old, very proud big sister. She is joyful and curious. Strong-willed and expressive. Kind and funny. A nurturer of all living things. And a beautiful, curly-haired, reflection of God's faithfulness in my life everyday.

Nine months after the birth of Star, we found out we were expecting another baby girl. Making our girls 18 months apart.

Lettie is two years old and our little firecracker. Her blue eyes are full of the sweetest sugar and spice. She is happy and independent. Decisive and fierce. A force to be reckoned with. A precious picture of God's blessings. 

Just 24 months after the birth of Lettie came our baby, Savvy Vay. 

She is the final touch to our family. She looks just like her sisters, and has been the sweetest, most content baby. She makes us whole.

Thankfully, I get to spend everyday being a stay-at-home wife and mama. When I am not folding clothes, changing diapers, cooking meals, or searching for the elusive paci- I am a photographer. I guess you could say I have a thing for capturing life through stills and words.

My husband and I have renovated two homes south of Fort Worth, and really love the process. The home we have now is a dream for us. It isn't huge by the world's standards, the bathrooms are still needing to be renovated, and my porch is never clean, thanks to my animals. But it is a place of big trees, a small creek, and the most incredible golden hour. In the mornings, our rooster greets the sun, and on summer evenings we are serenaded by the crickets and bullfrogs nearby. Maybe someday I'll post a tour....someday.

I am a lover of Mexican food, the crisp feeling of fall, the way Coke fizzes down my throat on a hot summer day, seasonal celebrations, decorating my home, Volcano candles, a bright bouquet of flowers, cooking, binge watching Friends, reading by the fire, friendships with people from all walks of life, the Texas Tech Red Raiders, simple days with my treasured people, and capturing this beautiful journey through words and photos.
