Love….when you know its real

Almost 13 years of marriage, and I cant wait for more. My cup runs over from the love he gives, and the support he shows me everyday. How else would I be able to blog the way I do.  We continue to love and respect each other, and grow to be more and more of what each other needs everyday. I have been in love with this same man since I was 15 years old. We are talking now more than half my life. I am actually proud to say that. He gets asked advice, I get asked advice…And the main message we give is NEVER GIVE UP. If you take that leap to marry a person. Do it knowing that its forever. A lot of times people give up to easy when it gets hard, or when your tested. That is the time to find your way back to your love. Never lose focus on it. Never walk away from it. I wont go on to much because I can talk about this all day everyday, and this is a “Design Blog” after all, right? People are just not open enough to people, especially young people just starting out. Any who…I was actually saving this photo for our anniversary post later this month, but I love it so much and had to share. I tell yall, everything gets better with time.

We are ready to write a book!

love 

For Everyone Wondering What that is on my leg (lol) I burned myself in the 4th grade on a nightlight at a friends house. Never went away!

Wishing yall a great weekend!

My parents have been together since they were 12 & 13 yrs old. They've now been married 41 years. You and your hubby remind me of a young them. :)
I enjoy everything about your blog but the post on the love you & your husband share is especially inspiring for a single gal such as myself.
Continue going strong!

Beautiful.

Leslie said...

You are so RIGHT!!! Never give up. Marriage is so tough, and people don't want to go through the hard times so they just give up. I met my husband at 16, got married at 17 and now have been married to the love of my life for 14 years. I love that MAN!!!! Congrats to you and your MAN!!! It takes a real MAN to be a loving HUSBAND!!!

Thanks for this post mama...I've been soo pissed at my husband all day-er maybe off and on for a while now. For some reason he doesn't feel the need to talk to me while he's away from Feb-Aug...and I've been pouting feeling hurt and pissed that I'm not getting my emotional needs met. But regardless-I need to stick it out...this is a great reminder of this. Thanks mama-Pray for us that it gets better and he calls me more often! I miss him!

*ps my mama and daddy met when they were 13 and 15! Got married at 18 and 20-they celebrate their 30th this year! Took apx 5 yrs of counceling to stay together when I was little-I'm SO thankful they did!
