My hope for this section is for us to laugh, cry, and just be honest about the awesomeness of marriage. It isn’t always the easiest of roads to travel but at the end of the day it is my road and I love it! I have been married to the love of my life for a little over ten years now and I can honestly say I have no idea what I would do without him. He was my very first love and I was only thirteen. I knew from the very first conversation we had that I had to get to know this guy and quick! There was something about him that my innermost being connected with and felt so at ease with. When we first met he was not and has never been your “stereotypical” male. He is the most passionate, loyal, honest and up front, loving, funny, and hard-working man I know. We fell in love at a young age but also knew that we had to live our lives as normal as we could since we lived seven-hundred twenty miles apart. That story will come later. It’s a good one and we have been told many times that we should write a book about our life. Who knows? Maybe we will. Until then, I shall share my experiences here. Like any relationship you experience, whether it is a spouse, child, family member, friend, or co-worker you must nurture and handle their feelings with care. I truly believe that everything has a season. This is also true with relationships. Some last longer than others. I am always saddened when any of my relationships, very close or otherwise, comes to an end. On the other hand, I also feel extremely grateful for knowing the secure feeling of a truly faithful and loving husband. There is no other feeling like it in the world. I have experienced the other end of the trust spectrum with past relationships and it isn’t fun at all. Our marriage has been a happy one and one I look forward to each day. My heart skips a beat when I see him walk in the door after work and I get butterflies when he come home from a business trip. What do you love about your marriage? What do you do to keep the fires burning so to say? I would love to hear your secrets to a happy and healthy marriage!
