What Love Can Do

This morning after kissing my Valentine off to work, I was thinking about how much my life has changed since meeting him. Not only that, but how much I’VE changed.

Five years ago this April, I was a city girl living in Chicago, working at a large PR agency, mainly concerned with what new outfit I was going to wear out with my girlfriends that Saturday night. I didn’t know that at a birthday party one night I would meet a man who would so wonderfully alter the course of my life.

Fast forward to now and I’m a mountain girl living in a town of 8,000, working in marketing for a ski resort and my fashion concerns revolve around what flannel shirt to wear.

What a difference!

Being in love with Luke has brought me places I never imagined, opened me up to parts of myself I didn’t know existed and given my life more meaning and joy than I thought possible. He’s allowed me to grow and evolve while supporting my every move.

And while our love guided me from single city-girl to a wife in-the-mountains, the most incredible thing happened … we created a person. A living manifestation of our love.

And she’s the most beautiful, sweet, special person I could have ever imagined.

If you described my life now to me before meeting Luke, I would have thought you were crazy. Just goes to show what love can do.
