“He had my attention from day one, but wooed me for almost six months with fireflies in mason jars, African wild flowers in glass coke bottles, and sweet notes waiting on my windowsill!” This love sounds almost too good to be true, but the magic behind Brigette and Jeff’s love is real and we feel so blessed to be able to watch them renew their vows at the 1st New Orleans NotWedding tomorrow. Their love has beat distance and sorrow. We cannot wait for you to read their oh-so-sweet Sappy Love Story – enjoy!
Who I am today began just a few years ago with love for God and a willing heart. January 14, 2010 I squeezed my sweet momma and my baby brother one last time with a knot in my throat and tears ready to burst. I made my way through the airport wondering what God had in store. A short flight later those feelings faded as I found myself meeting the team that I was going to spend half a year with in Africa – and when I say “team” I specifically mean a comical, dashing, chivalrous, young man.
Do you see where this is going?
He had my attention from day one, but wooed me for almost six months with fireflies in mason jars, African wild flowers in glass coke bottles, and sweet notes waiting on my windowsill! Unfortunately, our trip came to an end and I found myself squeezing him one last time with a knot in my throat and tears ready to burst. We split ways and endured a year in a long distance relationship. Thankfully we got engaged, married, and pregnant (in that order!) faster than I could say “yes!”
I miscarried my first baby and went through the darkest, deepest hurt of my life, but God graciously provided life in my womb once again and that is my sweet baby Ella. She’s my joy, my motivation. And my little shop assistant.
