It is Mr. Pimleco’s birthday today, so I wrapped his gift following the Japanese art of furoshiki. This is an environmentally friendly way to wrap gifts because there’s no waste at the end. I used one of my own scarves to wrap Mr. Pimleco’s gift but if you are using this technique, the scarf or piece of cloth also becomes part of the gift.
There are hundreds of tutorials online showing different methods ranging from very easy to very complex. The method I used was easy, but it looks great. If I can do it, anyone can.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Pimleco. Xxx
SWIPE TO SEE WHAT WE LOOKED LIKE 6 YEARS AGO
Today is a special day in my world.
I love this day because 6 years ago, we had only been dating for little more than a month when Joshua drove 1 hour 30 minutes and showed up to my house at 9:30pm to tell me something that truly defined our relationship.
Remaining pure until marriage was something that I decided to commit to when I was 14 years old.
In fact, that very week I made that commitment, at the age of 14, I got a purity ring.
2 years prior to meeting Joshua, (writing in my husband journal - which I’ll talk more about in another post) I wrote “Lord, may my future husband recognize and value purity as much as I do.”
The first time I ever virtually met Joshua (which happened to be on Skype back in 2012, & it was for 7 hours…lol) I boldly told him about my commitment to purity.
He was the first guy I had ever told that didn’t look at me like I was crazy. Instead, he looked me straight I the eyes & said “I will 100% support you.”
Although I had told him about my commitment to purity, & he supported me, I deeply wanted him to commit to purity with me as well but trusted that the Lord would ultimately lead Joshua to make that decision, not have me pressure him into it, so I never asked Joshua about it.
The week leading up to this day, It had been heavy on my heart to bring it up, but every time I wanted to - I didn’t feel right to ask him because I didn’t want to create any pressure.
Fast forward to 6 years ago today…
It was 9:00pm when I got a text from Joshua telling me that he would be at my house in 30 minutes.
Ya’ll I literally had this fear that he was going to break up with me. 🤣
When he showed up, he asked me to sit down so we could talk. The first words that came out of his mouth were “I commit to purity with you & I want us to go get a ring right now to symbolize this commitment.”
I smiled, laughed & cried. It was in that moment, that I knew I was going to spend the rest of my life with this man.
Never apologize for having high standards. People who really want to be in your life will rise up to meet them. ♥️🤟🏼 #EmbraceYourReal
I spent some time not posting my wedding photos because I wanted to reflect on the most magical weekend I’ve ever experienced + relax into married life. Something no one tells you- there is a sadness that accompanies the end of your wedding. After the long months planning and the heightened experience of this one day you are left feeling a lot of things. Excitement, fulfillment, contentment but also a soft loss. You just don’t want it to ever end. The consolation prize is that I get to call myself wife to @camronr for the rest of our lives.
Thank you to @clairepettibone for making my romantic hippy dreams come true and @blueheronfarms for the whimsical bouquets!
