Hi! My name is Elise. I'm a wife, momma, and daughter of the King.
Sometimes I forget that last part, but I'm trying my best to embrace + live my truest identity.
This is my most-handsome husband, Michael.
You can read our love story here. It's a good one (not that I'm biased).
{6.16.12 - husband and wife}
We were both born & raised in the midwest, and we met at the University of Michigan (go blue!). After school, we moved across the country to New York City. I always wanted to live in NYC, and I am blessed to work here as a vocal artist, voice teacher and writer. Michael is working towards his Ph.D. at Columbia University studying geophysics and seismology.

In March of 2014 our sweet baby, Thomas Gianna, was born into eternal life after a miscarriage.

On March 2, 2015, Peter Matthew, our sweet blessing from above, was born.

This is a blog about our journey.
Only the Lord knows what is in store for us.

I look forward to sharing my heart with you along the way. I'm so glad you're here!
P.S. Read how I chose my blog name in my first blog entry.

P.P.S. I also write for the beautiful ministry Blessed is She {daily devotionals for women}.
