amandaseeyoudarrr @YourTea in my cup while reading my good friend @unveiledwife's newest book make for exquisite Saturday mornings!

I have fallen head over heels with @unveiledwife's book as I find many bits of myself in her story. Jennifer was unable to be intimate with her husband for nearly 4 years and her willingness to open up the deepest wounds and parts of her soul to the world...is inspiring to say the least. Vulnerability and transparency are everything I stand for and I cannot encourage enough wives to get their hands on this book! God truly works the most intricate miracles through those who are willing to tell His story through theirs.

amandaseeyoudarrr Late night post!

Tomorrow.. I go for my first time to see a fertility doctor. I am so excited! After a year filled with so many questions and self-diagnosis, I feel closer than ever to having real answers! My prayer is that the doctor would know exactly what's going wrong and that he'd be able to help me get healthy again so I can get pregnant. Thank you guys for all your prayers thus far! They have meant the world to Sam and I (and our future bean)!

amandaseeyoudarrr On days like today, I revert back to my happy place. This was the hardest hike of our lives - the hike in Alaska to Exit Glacier. I remember the burn in my thighs and the sting in my lungs as sweat dripped from my brow with every step.. I remember how many times I wanted to give up during the 3 hour trek up the mountain. How I was positive the view from the top could never be worth all of this agony.

But even more than the pain, if I close my eyes now... I remember how clear my surroundings became to me. As I shifted my focus to where I was and the magnitude of what surrounded me.. The pain became very dull. I must have said "Wow" a thousand times in mere disbelief of the beauty I could not fully comprehend.

And once we rounded the last bend.. Every moment I wanted to give up became just a memory, as I stared in awe at what I almost gave up.

Don't give up. Joy is just around the bend and once it arrives, the pain will fade and what is most important will become clear as crystal... and so beautiful that you cannot comprehend it.

By the way.. I haven't done a black and white photo in YEARS. I'm still uncertain about this one so don't be surprised if it ends up being deleted!

amandaseeyoudarrr Honestly you guys, I cannot believe how many phone calls, texts, private messages and comments I received today. They were all filled with love, encouragement... Lots of vulnerability and relatability..and some with tears. My mother in law brought me flowers and came to cry with me, and my parents canceled their plans to be with Sam and I for the evening. Sam even brought me Cinnabon! 😛 My heart is overwhelmed from all the support! I'm going to try and respond to some comments as soon as I can! Many of them I read with tears streaming down my face!

Today was extremely vulnerable for me. But my post only proved that vulnerability begets community! We all FEEL like we're in our struggles alone because no one talks about the hard stuff. Life is tough and can sometimes be unfair and make no sense. We need to put ourselves out there, so we can connect with others and uplift each other when we're low! Let the love flow freely from your heart into others. Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for embarking on this crazy journey with me!
