{AWAY IN D.C. PART 11...}

we just finished our first round of pool fun for the day, taking a quick break for lunch, which gives me a few moments to post a few more pictures from our weekend away in D.C. a few weeks ago. we had so much fun and can not wait to get away again. on our second day out we decided to stop by a few museums and monuments. and while i wish i had called on a few of our favs from D.C. to show us around, we still had a good time getting "lost" in the city. 

we made our way through the butterfly garden after stopping by the peoples garden and taking pics to share with the babies when we get home. 

i happened to really enjoy visiting the Asian-American & African-American Museums while BDH was just happy to make it to the Air & Space Museum. 

i couldn't help but FaceTime the babies to show them how cool the museum was. The Lady Baby answered my FaceTime call while she was in the crib supposedly taking a "nap". LOL

we heading back to the hotel for a quick dip in the empty pool, which was nice. 

then we stopped by for dinner and that crab bisque tho!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so so very good. 

we can't wait for more adventures alone this year (because every single married couple needs it so very much).

{AWAY IN D.C. PART 1...}

"living without limits comes from a person whose heart is more captivated by a vision than a problem ~ "

i love this quote so much and it applies to my whole entire life right now but in particular, my marriage. sometimes our circumstances make it hard to find time to connect with one another's hearts. its hard to see past the the challenges of each day. hard to rest in HIS promises. hard to constantly take the necessary moments to recharge and refuel. i have no idea what it would be like to live in this world and navigate through marriage without our foundations being rooting in HIM. i am so grateful to have someone who loves our God like i do. and evermore, someone who believes that HIS every promise for our lives are for NOW and for ALWAYS.

TheFALLCo. was birthed and is an ever revealing love letter/blueprint from my FATHER above. i know it just seems like a t-shirt company, but it really is so much more. the other day i read that God sometimes responds to our prayer with an answer, while other times HE responds to our prayers with a "journey" that reveals those answers along the way. YEP. PRETTY MUCH! in building this "business"  HE teaches me day by day, not to conform to the ways of this world, but rather to walk each one of our days out by faith and leaning on + resting in HIS love. i say all of this because it has everything to do with this little trip of ours. 

it has been well over a year now that we have been walking out a new level of our faith as we learn to truly trust in HIM as our healer, our teacher, our provider. gosh HE is so very good. good not because HE parts the sea and raises the dead in our lives everyday, but rather, like a good teacher... reveals to us the miracles that are, in fact, laced in every part of our EVERY DAY. 

we spent a few days in D.C. away with one another and it was so very special. we didn't do anything spectacular. we didn't travel anywhere exotic or grand. but we enjoyed being together so very much and couldn't help but smile at all of the adventures that our FATHER has in store for us both near and far. 

there was not one argument. there was not one single moment of confusion that wasn't nipped in the bud right away. there was not one single moment that was taken for granted.  after ten years of challenges and trying times growing + navigating through life together, i really can not express how simply wonderful it was. 

just believe that it will get better. believe that God works all things out for your good. beielve that HE is both, the author and the finisher of our faith. beielve that the vision in your heart for your marriage, your family, your business, your life.... is so much bigger than any problem you encounter. just believe that God is, in fact, GOD! 

just grateful.

{A BETTER US...}

i love being married! i really do!!! and, not in a "it's just so wonderful, he gives me butterflies all the time, he finishes my sentences" type of way. honest. because the reality is that I'm sure he considers me the most difficult creature on the planet, i can't understand why he can never remember that i do not drink my water out of a glass or the fact that i refuse to eat white bread unless its toasted. i'm just saying'. what i love is that our love is so "unconditional". he's committed, and so am i. committed to loving each other, growing together, taking risks together. it's wonderful... more than a feeling, but a knowing! i love him! 

lately, we've been chatting about being more intentional with our time together. its hard when you have three little ones in constant need of attention, a house to maintain and a ton of other responsibilities. we've been so committed to working together as a team and have seen so much progress as a result of our efforts. yay! now we want to pour out more of our efforts into having more quality of time together and supporting each other in our health and fitness. were excited. well, I'm excited and he just feeds off all the excitement that pours out of my over zealous little heart. LOL.

we picked up new running sneakers, mapped out our meal plans and even started SnapChatting our little journey... pray for us! i am especially excited because intentional little things such as this, produce so much fruit in our relationship. i am excited for this health and fitness journey to teach us so much more about love and life with one another. i just really love growing with this guy. 

sidenote: i even started a "marriage" section of this inter-web space of mine. talk about intentionality and accountability, right!
