Today I am spending the day with the love of my life, in one of my favorite places – the beach!! We are celebrating 20 years of marital bliss!! If you follow me on instagram, you know he surprised me with a trip to my happy place! 🙂
Even as I typed the title of the post, I had to pause at that number. How could 20 years possibly gone by?? It seems like we met yesterday, and even then I knew we would be here, together, now.
What have I learned about marriage after 20 years? I have learned that I still have so much to learn. Monumental right?
I have spent the last 20 years getting to know my hubby, and still I know that I can go deeper and I want to know more. How is that possible, you might say. People have so many layers to who they are. If can take a lifetime to peel back each layer. As you peel you discover more and more. In my experience I have discovered more and more that I love!!
Marriage is a journey, and at the end of this life we will have lots of stories to tell.
Is it hard work – sometimes, yes.
Is it worth it – every second.
Maybe you are at the beginning of your married journey, or maybe you have been walking together a long time. Either way I say, keep the faith. Hold hands often. Look into each others eyes – into the soul. Say “I love you”, and never stay angry.
A sweet friend of mine shared her story and her grandparents story this last week, and I so enjoyed reading, and seeing, the sweetness of both. Please go check them out – you will be encouraged for sure!!
Now – back to the beach we go to soak in more sea-salt air. AAAhhh.
Yes, it’s our anniversary vacation and yes we are at a Starbuck’s so I could finish editing this post, since we have no wifi at our condo. That’s how much my hubby loves me. 🙂 If you care to follow along on our fun in happy you can join me on instagram!! See you in a few days bloggy buddies!!
