Happy Anniversary!

18 Feb

Today 5 years ago I was introduced to my Hubby. I would say that it was love at first sight, and I told several people after our first meeting that we would be married ( I didn’t tell him that)! I do have to give a shout out to my BFF Stace, I owe our introduction to her. (They were co-workers) We dated for 2 1/2 years, engaged for 1 year, and now married for 1 1/2 years.

Having Valentine’s day and our anniversary in the same week usually makes for a very romantic time. Nice dinners, wine, gift exchange.. This year he is traveling for work, but the first message I got this morning was from him wishing me a Happy Anniversary. Ahhh, he remembered without any prompting.

I am not sure the exact date the we decided that we were officially boyfriend/girlfriend, but that does not matter. What counts is the day we met and that it was the beginning of our lives together.

So my question to you is, do you still celebrate the first date or the first time you met your loved one?



Describe Your Marriage

12 Feb

I am not an expert on marriage and can not offer any sort of knowledgeable advice seeing that I have been married for only  1 1/2 years. BUT, I have been fortunate enough to be surround by many marriages that have lasted a long time. My parents just celebrated 35 years, my husband’s parents are still happily married, both my grandparents had long loving relationships. Even my friends growing up, their parents are all still married.

As I enter into this journey called marriage, I often think about what it takes to make it work. (In no particular order.)

  • Love
  • Respect
  • Family Values
  • Manners
  • Friendship
  • Laughter
  • Trust
  • Communication
  • Security

If you could describe your marriage in 5 words, what would those words be?
