J+B // Happy Anniversary
As you can tell I haven’t blogged in FOREVER, but my sweet talented friend Janet Mitchell offered to help me write since I struggle with writer’s block. Plus I think we make an awesome team! Trust me when I say it takes a village to run a business, be a wife, a daughter, a mom and a friend. I don’t know about you, but I can use all the help I can get!
Romans 8:28 tells us “… that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Never is this more evident then when I meet couples and hear their love story. How else can you explain how a middle school youth pastor from Buffalo met and fell in love with a laid back California girl who just happens to be a middle school teacher and counselor? Seriously, I can’t make this stuff up. On the surface these two look like night and day, but spend some time with Justin and Brittany and you can not only see the love… you can feel it!
Meet Justin. He’s often described as “the coolest dude ever,” by his middle school students. He’s a little loud and doesn’t mind being in the spotlight. He might even be a little crazy (which I think is a job requirement when you minister to thousands of middle school kids), but one thing is for sure, he loves what he does and he is head over heels in love with Brittany. This California girl is sweet, a little more reserved, and a self-proclaimed introvert. So, when she met Justin she knew her life was going to be shaken up.
Justin told me he wanted to surprise Brittany with a photo shoot for their first wedding anniversary. As you can imagine I love surprises so I was giddy as he shared his plans of a romantic getaway that included elements from their wedding. Remember, I said you could “feel” the love. Justin had the top tier of their wedding cake remade, ordered flowers to replicate their centerpiece and had it all set up so Brittany could relive some of the special moments from their wedding day. Yup, this is what dreams are made of!
God’s timing is perfect! Happy first anniversary Justin and Brittany!
