Peace, Love, & a Quarantine Wedding

One week of being married ☑️

It's been a long time since I have written and MY oh MY how things have changed since. Life is an incredible journey that can teach us so much. When I look back now at the last year of my life, I can tell you, I am a completely different person. I was pushed and forced to grow and learn. I have never been so grateful to do just that!

I am usually a pretty open book- some might say too open. 😂 This past year I kept things closer to my chest and truly focused on me, on us, on the essential stuff. This is something I would encourage everyone to do. A little refocus can be life-changing! And sometimes we have to fall to become stronger as we pick ourselves back up again. Allowing myself to ignore the comparisons, the fear of judgment, and even other people's opinions propelled me to a new level and sense of who I am and what I need.

As I took this step back, I found several things in my life that I needed to change! I wasn't happy and there was no reason I shouldn't have been happy. During this time, I changed little things and a few big things in my life. I was not alone on this journey. I was lifted, supported, and loved.

All of those changes brought us to this extraordinary time in my life! No words can express the completeness and joy in my heart.

When we look around the world today, it can be overwhelming. I have found a strange calm and peace during this time because I had Zach by my side. There seemed like no better time than NOW to get married. And it will be a memorable moment for us beyond any 'normal' wedding.

A Zoom wedding is definitely one for the books. I never could seem to do things the way everyone else did. 😜 We had a monitor right beside us so we could see our virtual guests during the ceremony, and it was pretty magical! Although not all guests are pictured, they are all loved and appreciated! With a limited amount of friends and family with us in the room and more connected to us, virtually, we got MARRIED!

We are so very ready for the next step in our lives together. We are grateful to have shared the day with a small group of our friends and family. As much as I wish we could have had all our supporters there, it was nice to keep it small and simple. We are now so happy to share and celebrate with everyone! I can't even begin to count the number of supporters I have had over the years and to all the people that helped me believe in people again. I love you all! I have no doubt if you are reading this now, you are one of those people!

Enjoy some random photos from our day. Since we were so covert about this, we have also had requests for our registry. If you are wanting to send us something and help us to keep celebrating, you can find our registry here.

Thank you, Sammi and Brittany for the socks! They went perfectly with my sparkly sneakers!

Shoutout to my sister, Liz for the sash!
