We are Cody and Angie, and we'll tell more of our story through these pages. We love Jesus, He is the center of our marriage and we seek to honor and follow him in our days. For more about how we met, click here. We got engaged in November 2019 and were married in February 2020, just before the pandemic.
Welcome to our REEL life, where you'll see our everyday life and the things we love.

Hi I’m Cody. I was asked one time "what would you like for the first word out of someone’s mouth to describe you?". I’ve gone back and forth on what I would want that to be, I’d like to say it would be one of the fruits of the Spirit because of my walk with the Lord. A few other things could be my wonderful wife’s husband, love ya Ang; a guy who does all he can for his family and friends; an avid fisher and hunter; a High School teacher; a High School Football Official. And, over the years I’m sure people have described me as that crazy guy who likes to run. Above all, I hope to be known as a servant, as this is where I feel like God has really gifted me.

In a perfect world we would meet up at a table for breakfast and coffee, I would show up in leggings and no make-up and we would be able to linger in conversation and life. Maybe one day, I will see you at the table.
Until then, thank you for stopping in. Websites are a funny thing, sometimes I get a little nervous that so much of "me" is on the internet. But, beyond that fear is the reality that if just one person connects with my story and finds purpose and joy in their life, then it's worth the risk of exposing me. So, welcome to my little corner in the world wide web, where I share my life; engaging through life stories, expression of my style from both home and my closet and equipping of the next generation. I'd love to connect with you, to speak and/or host your event, teach professional development, letter a design or contribute to your publication. And, surely that means we will get to connect at a table.
A little more about me...
I'm a Texas girl and I Love: Life, the Word, my husband, family, Littles, Auggie dog, besties, road trips, breakfast, Rodeo, Dr. Pepper, accessories, small towns, church, cowboy boots, Chick Fil A, dance halls, volunteering, back roads, Tex-Mex, live music & doing my part to make a difference!
E N G A G E: Life Story
It's about your life story. Your story matters. You may think it is insignificant, or it might seem like no one else would care. All of the life experiences we go through make us who we are. Chances are someone else is going through what you've been through and your story can help them. Or, someone who's been through what you are has told you their story and it has encouraged you along the way. My faith has sustained me through many twists and turns on this road of life and because of Jesus I always have hope. I'm sharing my story here and hope that you share yours wherever you are, because it matters!
E X P R E S S: Style from my Closet + our Home
I believe every person's style is their own. My "What I'm Wearing" posts are designed in case you need some inspiration for your closet, my hope is that I can give you some ideas from what I'm wearing. What fits you doesn't always fit me. What fits me, doesn't always fit you. So, we all know the style of jeans that work best for us, the brands of shoes we love, etc. I'm not a "linker" to buy all of these outfits here. Truth be told, a lot of my clothes are many many years old and I pick up things all around. The main stores I shop are Target, Gap brands, Marshall's, TJMaxx and Nordstrom and I love shopping small in local boutiques I find on road trips. I don't update my wardrobe every season with the latest and greatest and a lot of items I pick up from the clearance racks. #bargainshopper Hopefully you're just inspired, maybe by something you have and didn't think about putting it together or maybe you are just looking for a simple accessory to add in and these posts can give you some ideas.
Your home is your own. It has to work for you. I love gallery walls and words are my very favorite to decorate with. I'm an organizer by nature. I believe in things having a place, even the junk in the junk drawer can be organized. Thinking about how you use your closets, cabinets and drawers then putting a few simple containers or dividers in place can make life simple.
O U T D O O R S: Where I Connect with God
Growing up in my family, I was always outside doing things; from sports, to fishing and hunting, or holding the light for dad as we worked on different projects. As I became an adult none of that really has changed, except now I ask my wife to hold the light for me. I have a passion for the outdoors and the closeness that it brings me to my childhood and most importantly to my walk with the Lord. I want to share these moments with you from my favorite outdoor adventures; this may be tips and tricks, successes and learning moments, tournament recaps, running diaries, thoughts from the deer blind and other ramblings.

Equipping Education for the next Generation
After 16 years working in Corporate America and the 2nd layoff, Angie hung it up and switched careers to education. She taught High School for 2 years and now works in Career and Technical Education (CTE) Administration, which actually seems to be full circle for her career. She believes if we equip students with academic, technical and employability skills, they have the chance to succeed beyond High School. Thrive. Change the generations of their families. CTE programming offers opportunities to connect education to a career area that a student loves and when that connection is made, a student is more successful in school and also in life. Angie has presented breakout sessions at State and National conferences on this subject, as it is what truly makes her heart beat for our future generations and economy.
Cody began teaching in 2013 after two years of working as a substitute while finishing his degree in History. As a history teacher, Cody's goal is for students to think critically about what they see, consider all sides of evidence before forming an opinion. In his classroom he strives to be a positive male role model to students, make an impact on their lives and it's a bonus to talk about history, his favorite subject, for eight hours a day. While people say "history repeats itself", Cody believes you can always learn from history, though it might not really repeat.
Extra: Lettered Art
Angie loves words that inspire, words that move, words that challenge, words that matter, words that teach, words that convict and words that love. She creates lettered art....on canvas, wood, cards, chalk board, banners and heck even on an old tin trash can. Have something you want lettered? Let Angie know! Every piece is handmade and created freehand. So, it's not always perfectly centered or exactly all the same size font. However, it's created with you in mind, and if it's a little imperfect, that's ok, we are all a little imperfect.
