There are a lot of incredible qualities that I admire about this best friend of mine and now I get to add amazing mother of triplet boys to the list!!! @aburle2, it's a joy to see how God is equipping you & @ryburle for this journey! @cboynton12 & I couldn't be more excited for what lies ahead for the Burle boys...and for babysitting duty 👶🏼👶🏼👶🏼
These two. We had our last dinner together as roommates to celebrate the closing of one chapter and opening of another. And I guess "the end" got me thinking a lot about "the beginning" because they're both an answer to a prayer that was prayed on the living room floor of a newly purchased townhouse. It was a request for God to do the work to make this place a home. A hospitable and rest-filled home. One that would be filled with equal parts laughter and vulnerable conversations. Accountability and moments of "i get it", "me too" and "it's going to be okay". And my words fall short (way short) in expressing how many times over that prayer has been answered when an empty townhouse was filled with "the Hannah's". Because living with roommates has taught me a lot about relationships. It offers a unique opportunity to witness the in's and out's of one another's lives from a close range. And in doing so, it forces us to come to a crossroads more quickly where we have to ask ourselves if we're going to watch from a safe distance or begin walking alongside one another. Because walking alongside someone comes with responsibility. It's deciding to offer hard truth in the middle of mess or a hand to grab you out of the pit. It's the decision to invest time in each other and reminding the other of what's to come instead of being focused on what's right now. It's both a commitment and a privilege. And it's the gift of authentic relationship. Thank you @hcataldo and @hannah_ralston for helping me take part in that gift each day.
Love these girls and the opportunities we have to celebrate one another 🎉🎉 #mkfoundherBOYnton
Of all the reasons to celebrate your life, my favorite is that in every season the One you live for never changes. Happy Birthday, CB!! I'm grateful for the way you live!
It's always a joy to celebrate friends!! Nat, I love that I have the opportunity to watch your family grow! It was a gift to be able to shower you and baby Annabelle with love and support! I am so ready to meet the newest member of the Collinger clan!! 🎀
I showed up to the hospital 24 years ago to meet you for the first time. I was wearing a New Kids On The Block t-shirt. It was 1993 so that automatically disqualified me from being a cool big sister. But it was my favorite shirt and I had already decided you were going to be my favorite person, so it made sense to me. And walking into that room and holding you for the first time- it's the first memory I have of experiencing joy. I celebrate that day today and all of the days since and all that are to come! HAPPY BIRTHDAY @a_purgg!! You are loved!
An opportunity to raise your voice // today, all of us who have a voice get to speak for the 27 million people who are enslaved and voiceless. // So we raise our voice in awarensss knowing it leads to action. Slavery still exists, and we're not okay with it. ❌ #inittoendit#enditmovement

And while these days of waiting and preparing are sweet, those days will be sweeter!! I am forever grateful that I get to live them out with you...dominos pizza, dirty dishes and all 😘
If only there were words to match the joy and thanksgiving my heart feels!!!!!! @cboynton12, you are a picture of God's overwhelming grace, His unmerited favor. I will celebrate the gift He has given me in you all the days of my life! I cannot wait for the day when I become your wife!!!!
