Framed memories + LMP Giveaway Winner


From life's most cherished occasions to the everyday ordinary moments, my grandma has photos framed throughout every room in her white house. From table to table, you'll spy chunky baby cheeks from her grandbabies, regal graduation photos of my dad & Aunt Susan, class portraits, family gathered by the fireplace at Christmas, wedding photos that span 3 generations.


Isn't is lovely? The photo was taken at Grandpa Tye & Grandma Betty's wedding in 1952 in downtown Lynchburg. Although my grandpa has since passed away, Grandma still shares memories of their 57 years together daily & wears her wedding ring close to her heart, on a chain around her neck.

Their love for one another fills her house just as it appears in the stillness of their wedding photos. A handsome young man, raised in the country, taking the hand of a beautiful girl, who lived her life in the city. Together, they were two lovebirds in a nest, side by side, until the very end.



Thanks, y'all, for entering the Lindsay Letters print giveaway over the past week! After drawing a name this morning, the winner of the lovely vows print is Lynsey Knisely! I'll be emailing you later today :)

LMP Giveaway: Lindsay Letters Gold Foil Vows Print

"...Wedding vows are not a declaration of present love but a
mutually binding promise of future love." Tim Keller, The Meaning of Marriage

To have & to hold.

For better or worse.

For richer or poorer.

In sickness & in health.

All the day of my life.

The words you share & repeat at the altar, those promises you make before God, your family & friends on your wedding day are such a beautiful picture of the covenant God designed marriage to be. The binding commitment between a husband & a wife that sets the foundation for their lifetime.

Joy. Sweetness. Overwhelming love. The emotions we feel in that moment are only part of what the holy matrimony between a couple represents. Tim Keller says it best:

"Rather, in a wedding you stand up before God, your family, & all the main institutions of society, & you promise to be loving, faithful, & true to the other person in the future, regardless of undulating internal feelings of external circumstances.”

I'm so excited to give away this gorgeous Lindsay Letters print! This beautiful gold foil writing, as a collaboration with the fabulous Southern Weddings Magazine, is a wonderful reminder of the vows we've made - or will soon make - to the one we love. The giveaway starts NOW & runs through next Thursday!
