A Timeless Love
I can hardly believe it, but today, March 8, 2018, marks 16 years of a timeless love and marriage for Tony and I! It's kind of crazy to wake up and realize that 16 years have passed since we said I do!
It's true, time flys when you're having fun. But lets be real, we've been through a lot in these 16 years. Multiple deployments, ten moves and three kids to name a few. Through it all, our love for one another has remained timeless! We are as crazy in love as the day we said I do, but you better believe, it took WORK! That's why I want to take a moment to encourage all of the married couples out there.
If you're anything like Tony and I, you were both a hot mess when you got married! It's OK! We all come into a marriage a little bent and broken. Practice grace with one another. Neither of you will be perfect but as long as you are determined to keep growing and doing life together, you will create a timeless love that will grow stronger with every passing year.
As for us, Tony has always been the more thoughtful and romantic one. When he plans something, its flawless! Me, on the other hand, I stink at this!
One anniversary I planned a "ROMANTIC' weekend away. I even had the perfect gift! A new wedding ring. He had lost his ring while we were at the lake that summer and he kept talking about wanting a new one. I planned to get down on one knee and ask him to marry me...cute right? I knelt down to ask and instead I got so nervous (because nothing went as planned), that out of my mouth stuttered the words, "toot toot marry me?!" Insert emoji rolling her eyes and hitting her head here!
Every year, Tony goes all out for our anniversary! It's not just another day in his book. Its a beautiful day in time that changed our life forever and he wants to keep it that way. I love that about him, but about a month prior to this day each year, I start panicking. What do I get for a man who has been the most powerful, positive and impactful force in my life next to God?! He's my best friend. He has loved me through all of my junk and he always goes out of his way to make me feel special.
Insert GOD moment!
I was racking my brain and then...I received an email out of the blue! Jord watches wanted to collaborate! Not only did they send me a watch BUT they wanted to give all of my friends, family and followers a chance to receive a $100 Coupon Code to use on the purchase of any JORD watch and all other entrants receive a 10% off coupon code!
I mean, these aren't your basic watches! Each one is an individually handcrafted, unique, one of a kind wooden watch that definitly makes a statement! It was the perfect gift for my classic, one of a kind man!
The best part, my husband kept saying that he needed a dressy watch for those out of uniform moments, so this blessing couldn't have been better!
I was also able to personalize his watch by adding a special engraved message on the back! It says, "I'll love you 'till the end of time. OGL" which stands for "Our Good Life." I had that engraved on a bracelet for the whole family this Christmas. It has a very powerful meaning for our family and I knew it would be the perfect touch.
To all of you who have supported us in our marriage, on the blog and in our business, thank you! We love sharing our life with you and we wish you the best of luck in this drawing and more importantly in your marriage and life. The world needs strong marriages that will last the test of time.
