First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. Sometimes it’s easy to start focusing more on the kiddos than the hubby, but really love & marriage were what came first before those precious bundles. I made this simple Valentine’s day card for my hubby as I thought about how far we’ve come together over almost 9 years of marriage (in March!) and how many days we’ve loved each other.

My Hubs and I have had a bit of a wild ride over the past couple of years dealing with various challenges in our lives. It’s all made me realize how much we both have to continually work on our marriage and never, ever stop. Some days being married is so blissful and easy, and some days it is really hard.

We are just two broken people in a broken world that are bound together in love under the ever-abundant grace of God. We are growing and learning alongside one another, and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to to this with.

I found calculating the exact number of days that it’s been since when Hubby and I fell in love until now was really meaningful. I may have event shed a big, melancholy tear or two… *shifty eyes*. It’s been a thrilling, challenging, so-easy-some-days, so-hard-some-days, beautiful ride. I am so thankful for my main squeeze!
