Here's to the the supportive ones, the you-can-do-this encouragers, the people who are there for you no matter what.
In all honesty, if it wasn't for my husband's support, I would never have had the courage to start my own business. When I doubted myself, he believed in me.
Who are the ones in your life that have been there for you no matter what?

When we are wandering the earth single and carefree, we can get away with not taking care of ourselves fully.
However, when we enter the domain of intimate relationship .. we are are (unknowingly) choosing to commit to a higher spiritual, emotional, and physical version of ourselves.
.
.
And a part of us will (naturally) resist that.
.
.
A part of us will resist wanting to feel responsible for another human being.
A part of us will resist the tension that (inevitably) exists when we are learning to balance our own self with another.
A part of us will resist any kind of growth that interrupts our comfortable self-focused tendencies.
.
.
A relationship calls us into being more thoughtful.
It calls us into being more responsible, more consistent.
It calls us into being and stretching and tolerating so much more of the disowned parts of ourselves.
.
.
That growth does not happen overnight.
Conflict will surface when those tensions become too much to bear.
But a new level of tolerance is possible and can await us on the other side of those conflict moments.
It can only happen when we can learn to see conflict as necessary opportunities for growth .. even as they are simultaneously excruciating.
.
.
We can choose to be reckless with parts of ourselves and remain fixed in our old behaviors. 
We can choose to neglect our self care.
We can choose to ignore the hurtful parts of our behaviors that are being mirrored back to us by our partner.
.
.
Or we can take another route. 
We can choose to accept that our partner (rightfully) relies on us to feel connected and wants to grow with us. 
We can empathize with how deeply our partner benefits when we take care of ourselves.
We can learn all the ways we defend and blame and self-protect that destroys partnership .. and own those things when they show up. 
We can choose to accept that intimate relationships will stretch us .. and change us .. and humble us in ways we could never imagine.
That choice is always ours to make.

This is truly all I can say for this week: I’m trying.
•
Wednesday the 17th was my birthday and I HATE my birthday for a lot of different reasons, but this year I hated it most of all. This year it felt like some kind of cruel joke, just a nagging reminder that our due date should have been the 19th. To put the icing on that cake on the 19th instead of having a baby I ordered my IVF meds. I swear the universe is only interested in making some cosmic joke out of us.
•
I know we’re lucky to be going through IVF when many can’t afford it, but the thing is it’s not luck at all. We’ve worked really hard for this. When my primary insurance didn’t have enough coverage remaining I took a second job to get more coverage to make sure we could do this. We fought for this. I called around to Starbucks after Starbucks and bothered them relentlessly until I got an interview, but now it feels like even through all of that we’re still so far away from a baby.
•
I want to be hopeful, I want to be optimistic, and I’m typically an optimistic person, but all I have is this heavy feeling that it won’t work, and I can’t shake it. So for now I have to put my confidence in our doctor, @drcindymduke ,and rely on her confidence that our miracle is coming because she knows the odds and realities best and she knows what to do.
•
I don’t share these things to be negative, I share because I know there are so many in our same position who feel the same but are scared to say they’re scared. No one wants to say it out loud, so I want to admit that these feelings and fears are valid and if you’re feeling them too that’s ok. Do your best and keep trying how you can, even if it’s just getting out of bed.

#husbandappreciationday is today, apparently! Made up holidays are silly, but I always enjoy any reason to celebrate the people in my life (and food. You won’t hear complaints from me about #nationaltacoday 🌮 or anything to do with donuts 🍩 ). I’m appreciating this husband of mine more and more, as we are geographically apart but much more on the same page than ever before. It’s taken 12 years of forming a partnership to have the marriage we have now, and I’m so grateful he’s matched my efforts. Supportive, open minded, and self motivated is how @benjamin.hymes lives, and I appreciate it everyday.

Tell me something you appreciate about your partner? Or something you are looking for in a partner if you’re currently unattached! ♥️

Day 6 of the sore throat, congestion, sneezing, etc. etc. and.... complaining. It's such a beautiful day out. I just want to feel well and get my hands in the dirt planting some flowers or veggies. Instead I'm out and about napping a lot while Kirk takes care of some errands.  Ugh...Can I just cry me a river now? 😭🤧🌞🌻 #cedarhillhomestead #livesimply #homestead #farmbeauty #countrylife #farmlife #marriage #spring #gardening #sickday

“I pick you too-rips mama!” 🌷

My two year old gleamed as she held out all the green buds she had picked for me.💐 She’s much like me. She couldn’t wait to see them bloom. All she saw was their potential and wanted to show me sooner rather than later. She presented me with such beauty and I had a choice to tend to that beauty or dampen it.💕 It was a small reflection of the conversation I had with my husband earlier today. I wrestled with words out loud and presented the dreams and goals in my heart and what I feel God calling me too. He chooses every time to dream with me. And see my potential before I can believe it myself. He doesn’t wait for me to bloom to see the beauty in my thoughts. And I’m thankful for that. Without his faith in me, my hopes wouldn’t grow. And without his support, I wouldn’t be here. ❤️ It’s #husbandappreciationday today, and I’m thankful. Beyond thankful. That when I didn’t see the beauty or potential in anything, he had faith enough for the both of us, and tended to the beauty he knew was In me. And still does. Everyday. 
He loves me as Christ loves the church and gave himself up for her. Jesus never stops seeing our potential. Never stops seeing our beauty. Loves us endlessly.
