I've thought about doing this for a very long time now, and finally, on a day when I probably should be trying to mark out the next thing on my to-do list, I have decided to make the leap. I spend A LOT of my time reading blogs (some of my favorites: rootedinlove and bringtherain), and I think it is such a convenient way to keep up with your memories.

Sweet Illuminations - other than an awesome song by Shane and Shane, it is the statement of my life. Everything in my life seems to be a sweet illumination of God's perfect love, grace and mercy, and I want to share those moments with you.

One such moment involves the man you see in my picture. On November 28th, 2009, I married the man God has been preparing for me for a while. We dated for 7 years and finally got married on the campus of Berry College. It was perfect and beautiful, and my prayer is that God was glorified. It has been the best 43 days of my life, and I know it will only continue to get better.

Another part of my life - I am a teacher of 16 precious fourth graders. These children of God surprise me every day, and I have no doubt that each of them will grow up to win over so many people for Jesus! More on these goobers later!

So, now my to-do list is calling husband is waiting for me at the door to make our weekly wal-mart run (who am I kidding, something is always forgotten!?). I am excited about this new adventure, and I hope that you enjoy a glimpse into the Sweet Illuminations in my life! :)
