four years

This year we passed through life’s darkest shadows and felt the warmth of life’s brightest joys. Through it all, there is no one I’d rather have by my side than you – my supporter, my partner, my best friend. We make the greatest team, and I can’t wait to experience this new chapter in our lives together. Happy Anniversary!

the unforgiving minute

I recently read the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling with one of my classes.  Even though I taught this same poem last year, these lines caught my attention this year: “If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run…” Any time I read the word “unforgiveness,” I feel a small twinge in my heart, […]


I am so blessed to be surrounded by talented friends and family.  This week, I was invited by my friends at Hartt Productions to share a little bit about my wedding day.  It was perfect timing, since Tanner and I just celebrated our second anniversary.  Hartt Productions is passionate about capturing weddings through film to make […]

two years

Two years of becoming one, Of depending on each other, Of supporting one another, Of sacrificing for each other. Two years of going on adventures together, Of being silly, Of making each other laugh. Two years of building a life together, Of reminiscing about the past, Of dreaming about the future. Two years made richer and […]

falling for you

I will always cherish October as the month that I first started falling in love with my husband. The crispness of the air, the cawking of the crows, and the anticipation of the coming holidays all remind me of the days when we first got to know each other. Our friendship began in high school through studying together […]

one year

One year of marriage. One year since I became Mrs. Hearne. One year full of new adventures and challenges. One year filled with laughter and so much love. One year I will cherish in my heart always and forever. Happy Anniversary, Babe! PHOTO CREDIT// BRAD & REBEKAH PHOTOGRAPHY

happy chances

“We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.” – William Somerset Maugham Although I’m sure William Somerset Maugham was a talented writer, I have to disagree with this sentiment.  I don’t really believe in […]

i am a wife

As I’ve been thinking about my identity lately, I can’t think of a more perfect time to reflect on my newest role in life as a wife than on my anniversary week! I am that wife who totally adores her husband. I am not that wife who prepares a perfect meal every day. I am that wife […]

servant leader

This man.  Where do I begin?  In high school his sweet smile, gorgeous blue eyes, and tender spirit caught my attention.  As time passed, I fell in love with him as I watched him pursue righteousness and cherish me.  As we made our way through college, his passion for work and devotion to excellence inspired […]
