Who am I?

I’m Anna.

I married the hottest photojournalist in the state.

I love Southern Miss, Hattiesburg, the Saints, my dogs, and shoes.

I love to run. Sometimes I run really silly distances. I’m not very good at it. I’m pretty slow.

I have the greatest friends and family in the world. You probably think you do, too, and that’s fine. I’m enough of a lady not to tell you you’re wrong.

I love Friends, Designing Women, The Big Bang Theory, and American Ninja Warrior. Gone with the Wind and Pride and Prejudice are my favorite novels.

I have endometriosis, and have dealt with “really bad cramps” since puberty. A lady never reveals her true age, but that’s 15 years.

Fifteen years, two surgeries, three accompanying conditions diagnosed, and more hormone treatments than I care to count all lead to one whopping, life altering problem:
Infertility.

On our first date, my Mister asked me

What it the most important goal you have for your life and your future?

Easy question. To be a mother.

Fast forward through a few semesters of college, a handful of jobs, a surgery, our wedding, and more unsuccessful hormone treatments, and we’re nearly two years deep into our journey to become parents.

We don’t know how long this journey is. At least I train for long distances?
We don’t really know exactly how we will get there. I really hate hills…
Sometimes we feel like we are barely limping along.

The glory of our great God sustains us, and we are satisfied in Him. Through our entire journey, we aim to glorify the Almighty.
In our journey to be parents: May He be glorified.
In our journey as husband and wife: May He be glorified.
In our careers: May He be glorified.
In our finances: May He be glorified.
In our thoughts: May He be glorified.
In every aspect of our lives: May He be glorified.

Finally, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these things.
