Marriage ❤️ I am naturally a pretty enthusiastic person and love to celebrate. I’ll jump up and down and celebrate almost anything. If someone gets a new job, finishes school, gets a new apartment, goes potty or starts to walk or talk - it’s celebration worthy! And all half birthday’s are a thing - right? 31 1/2! Woohooo!
I love to celebrate other people, make them feel special and give great gifts (guess my love language😅), bear hugs, flowers and balloons. But I have been thinking lately: every year we have a birthday - and I DO like to celebrate - but no matter what you do or don’t do, 12 months later and it’s your birthday again. It requires no effort of any kind. It just happens. But an anniversary? To get to celebrate yet onother year together can require effort. Some years ALOT of effort, some years less and some years it might feel like the date just showed up again. But choosing to stay together thru the good, the bad, the ugly (morning face) sometimes takes work. I have never worked on anything as hard and for so many years as I/we have our marriage. Our love for each other is real, but so are the struggles and disapointments. So for every year we stick it out, eager to love better, talk better, be better is worth a celebration! So tonight I am putting on my new little dress and going on a date with my hubby to flirt, talk and celebrate! Celebrate that we made it another year, celebrate the commitment we have to each other, our two kids and our family! It can be hard at times, but also wonderfully beautiful and so worth it! ❤️❤️❤️
