They have that quiet sort of romance- the kind that doesn’t call attention to itself, never asking for people to look its way. Sort of like the sweet background music in The Holiday; lovely, romantic and kind. His steadfast demeanor, her kind and gentle nature, it’s no wonder a relationship followed so soon after meeting […]

I love our church. We came to Reston Community Church (RCC) last August and from the first Sunday, we knew it was the perfect fit for us. There’s such genuine joy and a spirit of welcome in the air, and these people, our church friends, have become a second family to us. We know that […]

  • Sarah - Yay! What an AWESOME day and to be able to share that with Matt was nothing short of incredible! Thanks for sharing such a personal story and testimony and inspiring others. One of my favorite songs says – “You are more than the choices that you’ve made, you are more than the sum of your past mistakes, you are more than the problems you create, You’ve been remade…this is not about where you’ve been but about where your brokenness has brought you to” – You are More by Tenth Avenue North. Love you girly!ReplyCancel

  • Deborah Zoe - Beautiful, Abby:)ReplyCancel

  • Amy Rizzuto - This is so beautiful Abby! Thank you for sharing! Congratulations to you and Matt!ReplyCancel

  • Karen Field/Mom - Witnessing the joy on both of your faces was an awesome thing to experience. I agree with Sarah, I believe that was who quoted the Tenth Avenue North song. That song means a lot to me. It gives lie to what the enemy tries to keep us from: experiencing God’s great love for us and for our fellowship with Him. There’s the Westminster catechism where the first question is, What is the chief end of man? The answer is to love God and enjoy His presence forever. Do you remember that? The part about enjoying the presence of God being part of my chief reason for being delights me! It’s not all work and it’s certainly not about rules, but about responsibility and pleasure in Who God is. How cool is that?ReplyCancel

  • Lorin - This is SO neat! What an awesome way to walk in obedience to the Father :)ReplyCancel

  • Kristen - Possibly my favorite pictures you’ve ever shared :-)ReplyCancel

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to shoot at least one roll of personal work on film every month. Fail. Fail fail fail. Part of it’s been the fact that I keep my Contax in the closet, so I’m not constantly looking at it, and the other part is just plain fear of being […]

Welp, today’s post is a wee bit late because I decided to sleep until 10:15. Before you judge me too harshly, I was originally up at 3:45 for a sunrise session, but due to the rain we ended up postponing and I decided to go back to bed rather than start my work day at […]

We’ve lived in Italy for three weeks now, and ONLY now am I waking up at a reasonable time. And by reasonable, I mean 9am instead of 10 or 11. lol. Third, I LOVE Pitch Perfect and started singing one of the songs last night – not sure which – but I think Greg might have thought I was crazy. And finally, I love instagram! And I love that you post pictures of food – that is mostly what I want to post about and I have to hold myself back! ๐Ÿ˜€ReplyCancel
