Valentine’s Day

Truth, I LOVE Valentine’s Day! A holiday all about love, and pink, and I’m ALLLL about it. Growing up, my mom always made Valentine’s Day so fun and special for our family, so it’s never been associated with any of the negative things that make some people dislike this holiday.
Jake and I usually celebrate on the 13th because it’s our number, and so we can spend the 14th together having fun as a family. This was our morning, and tonight we’ll be doing steak and hot fudge sundaes, and celebrating the incredible gift of love and family. 

Also, Jake made the cutest little Valentine video of Hudson surprising me with his homemade valentine. Seriously, killed me. I put it down at the bottom. Hope you all have such a great day!

Baci Baci,

By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” 1 John 3:16-18

 

 

Choose Together

Heyyyyyyy!

We’re back! We are so excited to be relaunching this space! We’ve gone through seasons of doing this more diligently and seasons where life has demanded more of us than we could give here, but the truth is we love it. We love having a space to share our life in this crazy city with our friends and family. So welcome to the fam!
We created this as a space for us to work together, to each express ourselves creatively, to encourage, to share. We CHOOSE TOGETHER: to work together, to do life together; together with the Lord, together the two of us, together with our kids, together with other creatives.

We’re also so excited to be launching our YouTube channel! It’ll have all the same things that we share here; family, marriage, faith, our LA life, fashion & beauty. We put an intro video to the channel up today! Check it out! Let us know what you want to see!

We love that you’re here for this journey together with us!
Baci Baci,
Jac & Jake

5!

We are FIVE! How is this even possible? Getting married feels like yesterday, and I can’t imagine life any different all at once. We had the best weekend up in the mountains, just our little family in a cabin in the woods. We went in to town, down to the lake, made good food, and we just were. Jake and I didn’t even realize how fast we’d been going until we slowed down for a minute. We had hours of just sitting and talking, it was like a cool glass of water for my soul.

Jacob, my love, thank you for being mine. Thank you for loving me and our babies so well; I don’t deserve you.
Here’s to 100 more anniversaries!
Love you forever! J

you are my favorite

This week marks 5 years since this man of mine asked me to be his wife. We had a whirlwind 5 1/2 months of dating/engagement (you can read more about it here and here), and 5 years later, here we are: 2 babies, some crazy adventures, some heartbreaks, some great joys, and everything that comes between.

You, Jacob, are my favorite; more than our babies, more than anyone else, it is you. I choose you. On the days it is easy, and on the days it is hard, you’re my one. Someday when they’re not babies anymore and our hair is grey or gone, it’s you and me; and you will forever be my favorite. Not because it’s easy or because either of us is perfect, but because we continue to choose each other, every, single, day. Our marriage is not a testament of our own strength or greatness, but the greatness and faithfulness and strength of our God. Our crazy Italian selves would have done us in many times over the past five years, but by God’s grace, here we are, more blessed than we could ever deserve. I am more thankful for you than I can put in to words. Thank you for being my one and only, my everything other than Jesus. I love you my sweet, forever.

Jac
