We've Had Five Years of Wedded Bliss!

We've Had Five Years of Wedded Bliss!

How do five years fly by quickly?

Five Years

When you have a partner in life who loves you completely, that you love as much in return.

When you have someone beside you giving you support when the rough times happen.

Five Years /><blockquote><p class=


When you find great joy in just the quiet moments with each other.

When holding each other is the best way to end a day.

When you go on adventures with each other and love exploring together.

When you have two children who make life even more interesting.

When you feel able to be yourself completely without judgement from the other person.

When you are there to remind each other of important (and not so important) events and things that need to be done.

Five Years
When you care enough to ask about the other person’s family and worry about that family as if it was your own.

When you plan for the future together.

When you know how to make the other laugh with only a look.

When you know the other needs a hug just by the expression in their eyes.

When you make a dinner for your spouse that you can’t stand because you know they love it.

When you encourage them to go out and try new things or meet new people, despite not wanting to do that yourself.

When you try new things because your spouse wants to try it.

Five Years

When you tell the other to sleep because they need it and you take care of the kids or change the diaper in the middle of the night.

When you start and end every day with an “I love you” full of sincerity.

When you start and end every day with a kiss showing the other you love them.

When you go to Mass and pray for each other and your marriage.

Five Years

When you listen to the other rant and rave about a political issue you disagree with, but never say a word.

When you worry about the other because they have a bad headache and it reminds you of that one timewhen a bad headache was more than a headache.

When you worry about the other as he drives to work in a snow storm until you hear that he arrived safely. 

When you can’t wait until you get some private time with each other, without the kids!

When you convince yourselves that the fireworks put on every 4th of July are in celebration of your anniversary! 

When you can’t imagine a life without this wonderful and amazing friend.

When you look forward to another five years, 10 years, 45 years and more!

Five years ago today, I married my best friend in the world. I can’t imagine my life without him. I feel blessed that God brought him into life! God is good!

6 Tips for a Reader-Friendly Blog

When I started blogging nearly four years ago, I did it as a way to document what was going on in my life at the time. No more; no less. My blogs were far from perfect. I made lots of mistakes, from not adding graphics and not always writing my best to not promoting my blog. (Partly because I just saw it as a way to share with friends and family.) As time has moved forward, I believe my writing and my blog have improved. I've made several changes over the years: creating a new blog name, adding graphics, personalizing the theme, and becoming self-hosted, to name a few.   Read more >

When He Looks at Other Women...

Can a man make a woman feel like she's the only woman in the room? Maybe that's unrealistic. It would feel fantastic. What do you do when a man makes you know you're not the only woman in the room, and perhaps makes you even realize that these other women are younger, hotter, dressed better and have better hair? When a man looks at other women repeatedly, in a way that makes you feel threatened, it can appear like he's not done hunting for the one, even if you are his "one."   Read more >

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

I didn't always like pancakes. As a kid, I couldn't stand them. I remember as a teen babysitting for my aunt at her house and staying overnight. The next morning she made pancakes for everyone. My heart dropped. I ate them because I was raised to be polite, but hated every bite. I was around 16 at the time. A few years later, in college, my thoughts on pancakes changed. I discovered strawberry syrup with fresh strawberries in them. All of a sudden, those pancakes tasted amazing. It seems that it wasn't the pancakes I didn't like, but rather, maple (flavored) syrup.    Read more >
