Grateful.

So these are my sick day pictures. It's weird how all of your confidence is completely wiped out when you have a cold. I don't know if it's the fatigue, runny nose or sinus headache, but it sure has a way of kicking ya when you're down. But I feel like it's not fair to only show you what I look like on my good days! So this is me with slight bald spots in the front of my hair, a fake smile and a congested head, enjoy!



Dress: Meijer
Sweater/scarf/boots: F21
Purse: thrifted
Sweater tights: Target
Necklace: Target

I wore this to run a few errands and then I spent the day inside with my fiance and his family. Jeff made his amazing smoked chili, which was perfect for the wet, cold day. This weekend was an amazing one, even though I wasn't feeling so great. I just want to take a minute to talk about Jeff. I'm so truly grateful for him. We had to overcome a lot of things in our relationship and it took a lot of hard work, but now we get to enjoy all of the rewards. Some mornings I wake up and just think "how did I get this lucky?!" One thing is for sure, I never have to question his love for me. And even on the days I feel like my confidence is in the red zone, he somehow makes me feel beautiful. I'm so excited for next August when I get to become his wife. It feels so strange to think that I'm going to be someone's wife, but so rejuvenating at the same time. All I know is, is that our relationship would have never made it through if we didn't have God there to give us the tools we needed. I am so thankful for my fiance, my family, my life and for the One who made it all possible.

Jeff just helped me through a rough patch last tonight, so I felt he needed some recognition on my blog. He is my biggest supporter. He's also my only sponsor. I should start writing c/o Jeff below my pictures! Okay, so I'm done gushing for today. Summary: I'm very in love. :)

You are an absolute darling, and I'm glad that you are happy! How crazy it must be to (almost) be somebody's wife! <3 <3 <3

Hope you're feeling loads better (You look beautiful even sick!) and that this rough patch smooths out. If you'd ever like to talk to a virtual blogger stranger, let me know. It's no secret I've been struggling and I'd like to think I'd do more help than harm.
