I’m Lydia and welcome to The Evergreen Woods!

I’m a follower of God and a wife to my best friend James. 

I'm on a journey to live more and more for God. Following and loving Him, living with faith and hope through the struggles of life and infertility.

A little more about me,

I have been married to my husband James since 2014. It's kind of a funny story because I actually met him all the way back in 1997 when I was just 3 years old! After about a year he moved away from the area we both lived in and I didn't see him again for 15 years. We met up, there was an instant spark and here we are 6 years later, married and completely in love. He is my best friend!  

I am a mum to a beautiful boy who was born too soon. We lost him on February 14th 2018 at almost 15 weeks pregnant. It has broken my heart completely but in the process of grief I have learned to see and feel God's love more fully. If you are interested in following my journey of weekly acknowledging God's love in my life then follow along on Instagram using the hashtag #findthelovefriday  

I'm a photographer. I have a diploma in digital photography and it is such a fun hobby of mine. 

I love any and all creative things. Painting, journaling, crafts, embroidery, cooking, writing, drawing, making and much more. I'm not necessarily good at it all but I still find it a lot of fun!

I'm so excited to be here with you! If you want to get in touch with me for about anything please don't hesitate to fill out the form below! I would love to hear from
