A Beautiful Marriage




...all i want is a marriage more beautiful than my wedding...

Thank you ALL for the great comments you left me on this post.  Your feedback was just what I was looking for.  :)

As you may know, I married the perfect man on September 10, 2011.

Not.

But he is pretty amazing and he reminds me every single day why I fell in love with him somewhere around January~February..

Screech!

Wait, what?!  I got married to a man 9 months after we fell in love?  Oh yeah.  You can read all about it here.


Anyway...I came across this darling little "pin" and became inspired.




 It's easy to pin cute things or special words {with great intentions} and forget all about it, isn't it?!  :)  I do it all the time.  It's a bad habit.  I end up with HUGE pin-boards that ultimately leave me stressed out because I feel lie I've put too many things on my to-do list.  But this pin really got me thinking.

A marriage more beautiful than my wedding.

Our wedding was so gorgeous.  [One day I'll share all of the details with y'all.]  But what could I do to make our marriage even greater than the wedding? 

What does a beautiful marriage take?
My readers say it takes....

Husband and Wife
a sense of humor
the gift of laughter
a place to call home
family
friends
love
chocolate
video games
retail therapy
forgiveness
pets
trust
frozen pizza
compassion
thankfulness
date night
tough conversations
saturday mornings spent in bed
memories


What do you think?  What does it take a have a marriage more beautiful than the wedding?  :)

Amen! I got married about a month before you, and I'm learning these same things about marriage and love and how to make them strong. I love hearing about how other's are also strengthening their marriage!

Oh my... how have I not seen that quote before?! I LOVE it! What a perfect reminder.
When life gets hard I HAVE to take a step back and remember WHY I fell in love with Eric. And I remember that I chose to go through life's trials with Eric as my partner. Just remembering is a huge help!
