new traditions

"You have stories worth telling, memories worth remembering, dreams worth working toward, a body worth feeding, a soul worth tending, and beyond that, the God of the universe dwells within you, the true culmination of super and natural. 

You are more than dust and bones.
You are spirit and power and image of God.
And you have been given Today.”  -Shauna Niequist

i sometimes have the tendency of being a planner and forget to stop and see the beauty that is appearing all  around me. it is hard for me to stop and enjoy the coffee without thinking about how i am going to spend the afternoon or when i am going to fold the laundry. for this reason, i love traditions and celebrations. the combination of celebration and tradition helps me to reflect on what has happened in life and realize all the blessings that God has given me.  

caleb and i got engaged nearly one year ago. in order to celebrate, we made a new tradition of going back to the place that it happened, NYC. we went to the same breakfast place, sarabeths, enjoyed a stroll around central park, and went back to the row boats were caleb popped the question. this tradition may seem a little nutty for some, but for me, i am brought back to the moment. and in this case, the moment that changed my life. 

we got our picture on time square. nbd. 

so here's to moments. the moments we never want to forget (and in my opinion, are worth making new traditions out of).
