On Good Friday evening, Mark and I finally made it to the beaches at Normandy - namely, Omaha Beach. This was the deadliest, bloodiest site of D-Day: June 6, 1944. It was such a long drive (we were on the road for over 10 hours including a few bathroom breaks) and it felt like we had made a pilgrimage here. It seemed quite appropriate to visit such a solemn place on Good Friday: hallowed ground where thousands of American troops gave their lives for freedom. Because Good Friday is when Jesus died for our freedom from sin and death. As we stood there, looking out on the English Channel as the sun set behind the ridge (where the Germans had been set up, easily firing at the Americans), I thought of the transporters that came across the lapping waves, filled with troops. I imagined how they came onto the beach (though some didn’t even make it that far), and how the very ground we stood on was the place where soldiers died. I saw how big the beach was (it was low tide both then and now), and how impossible of a task it must’ve seemed to make it to cover. Mark told me that those in command who planned D-Day had to calculate the casualty rate. They knew about how many soldiers were likely to die and how many would survive. They even sent in the vehicles after the people so that the vehicles were at less risk of getting totaled. On the surface, this seems like folly. Like the human lives involved were just numbers! But then you think about Jesus’ death on the cross, how the Father offered up His Only Son. What father would do that?? Doesn’t it seem cruel?? It does on the surface, but we have to look further, deeper. God the Father offered His Son so that we all might be saved from the wages of the devil, of sin and death. And those soldiers were sent to the beaches of Normandy so that we, our country, and western civilization might be saved against the terror of Hitler and the Nazis. It was an incredible sacrifice and one that cannot be forgotten. Watching accurate World War II movies and documentaries is great - but there’s nothing like visiting the actual site of these battles. These times are some of the most meaningful times I’ve had in Europe. I’m so grateful.

✨⚓️ 4.20 ❤️ marks my husband’s 9th year serving in the US Navy. We’re almost half way, meaning my husband pretty much is making this a career which he won’t openly admit 😏. But I am so proud of him. • Charlie, to try to put into words how amazing you are would be a disservice. You embody bravery, courage, honor, hard work, patience and love in so many ways. I’ve witness you commit blood, sweat, and tears into your work, all while still keeping your vows to our marriage. This country is so blessed to have someone like you protecting it. I am so lucky to have you as my partner in life, best friend and soulmate. I pray everyday, that our future babies will have your heart. I love you so much and will always be by your side! ❤️

It was an absolutely epic night with some of the most amazing people I could ask for in my life. (Missing a few, and love you just as much). I'll post more, but i wanted to give a HUGE thank you to the Daniel's for making sure my birthday did not get missed while Ken was off galavanting with the military (🤣 kidding of course (sort of)). I haven't felt this appreciated and loved in such a long time. So, a huge thank you to all who were able to make it tonight! (And to those who were here in spirit.) I love you guys! Cheers to an amazing year! @ladaniel40 @bwdaniel #epicbirthdays #brisket #framily #friends #wocs #armywife #military #veteran #militaryspouse #happybirthday #turning21again

This was an intense week. As my due date gets closer and closer I’m getting more and more sleepy... which means I put on more and more makeup every morning to pretend like I’m awake!😂 See this sunset peach eyeshadow? Yeah, it kept me going today. Coffee isn’t working anymore *le sigh*. #thisbabytho #sotired #makeuphelps #chocolatealsohelps

It's pretty incredible how life lines you up with the way things are meant to work out. @johna_lombardi and I met 7 years ago in an online mommy group in 2012. Emma and Neva are both 6 and are the reason we became friends from thousands of miles away. Johna lives all the way in Rhode Island and I lived in Tennessee at the time! Fast forward to 2014, we were both miserable and pregnant again (her with Cali and I with Connor and Dillon) and we shared in all the highs, lows, food memes, and other glories of pregnancy again. After we had our babies we were on the "we will get rid of this baby weight somehow" kick and she found Herbalife Nutrition. Of course, she shared it with me, because that's what we do as health coaches...SHARE our love of these products and this team. We were friends, moms, and now business partners together. Funny how life works ain't it? ❤ Between us, over 1000 miles...6 kids...70 combined pounds lost...and an incredibly beautiful business growing. My vision is getting our girls, Emma and Neva, together on the beach in the Bahamas in 2020. Because without our girls, I would have never met you. And I am SO grateful to have you in my life!
