…with love, Devin

I am sad to see Valentine’s Day already over since it is a holiday I really enjoy!  But, I was lucky enough to get some beautiful images taken by my fiancé (who I am so very grateful for ) with the roses he got me. This post is in dedication to him for being the absolute best thing I could ask for & in honor of Valentine’s Day.

It is not everyday you find someone who will take up the hobby of photographing you & actually enjoy it!  Not only does he enjoy photography, but he pushes me to pursue my love of creating content and blogging. It is hard starting anything up, and definitely easy to feel defeated and at a standstill; but, I am constantly reminded by him that I am smart enough, creative enough, and able to push through obstacles by staying persistent and motivated. I am very lucky and blessed immensely to have that kind of support to back me up. 

He is always putting my needs before his, even when I deserve nothing! I am constantly reminded of his ever deepening love for me that I never have to think twice about. It is a wonderful feeling knowing how much someone cares for you during your absolute best and worst times and everything in-between (ever since he was in high school, mind you). 

He has so many loves that align with mine or we learn to bounce off each others likes and interests and begin to grow a passion for them as well (i.e. country music; I absolutely despised this genre of music but he insisted I’d learn to love it and now I do not know how I lived without it, lol). One of our biggest interests we both love is adventure and exploration. We look forward to traveling everywhere and anywhere together, having a forever travel partner to create copious amounts of memories with! Each day is an adventure, whether it is going out to study someplace and drinking lots & lots of iced coffee or planning a getaway out of the country with friends! From the littlest things to the most extravagant- we enjoy our times  together.

He always wants the best for me. I am his number one priority even in his most difficult times, which is something I reflect on time and time again. His selflessness is admirable and I am humbled to have such a wonderful & giving person placed in my life. 

He has so many qualities and characteristics that emulate the love of God. He is compassionate, loving, caring, giving, helpful, forgiving, patient, kind, & gentle; not only to me, but to those around him and to those he has never met before. He has made me grow so much as a person just by the way he lives out his life. Because of him & God working in him, I feel like a better and matured version of myself.

These words just give you a glimpse of the person that he is, because there is so much more. But these attributes do not go unnoticed. I am eternally grateful

Below  are some of the photos he captured of me (aside from the perfume images) ❤

My favorite perfume by Lancôme called La Vie Est Belle– It has a light and fresh smell with a sweetness to it, but still very mature and luxurious
