It’s hard to believe it’s been 12 years!
Yep, we celebrated our anniversary last week. Looking back over the years, it sure doesn’t feel like it’s been that long.
We have had ups and downs in our lives but there has never been a waver in our love for each other. Now, that does not mean that we don’t argue or that our life is perfect.
Trust me. We go through many of the same things you go through!
It’s easier to post each week and keep it uplifting simply because I, too, am always working on bettering my marriage. After all, that is the purpose of this link up. To encourage you, to inspire you, and to let you know you aren’t alone out there.
Marriage certainly isn’t all rainbows and puppies.
Marriage takes work. It requires respect. It thrives on love. <—- tweet
So I ask you, how do you celebrate your love outside of your anniversary? On days other than Valentine’s Day or Sweetest Day?
I truly believe marriage and love should be celebrated on a daily basis. Why? Because it’s hard on a daily basis! We should be showing our love through our actions and our words all the time.
We shouldn’t need a Hallmark reminder every once in a while to pick up a card or do something nice for each other.
We didn’t do cards, flowers, or even a fancy dinner this year. We treated it like any other date night. We did something we both wanted to do. We went to a 12 hour class we’d both been wanting to attend.
We also had dinner at our favorite hangout. It wasn’t steak and fanciness but burgers and live music. It was very simple but we were together at our favorite place!
It didn’t matter the venue because the company is what made it special. It wouldn’t matter what day it was it would be equally as special. This date night just happened to be our anniversary but it’s one we’ve had many, many other times.
Chances are it’s not your anniversary. How can you celebrate your love today?
