Why do people get married?

This post is part of the Happy Wives Club Blog Tour which I am delighted to be a part of along with hundreds of inspiring bloggers. To learn more and join us, click here! 

This blog tour had me thinking of what I wanted to say about marriage... I look around me and I see some unhappy marriages and I see some HAPPY WIVES :) (happy marriages)

When I see the unhappy ones I wonder if they have forgotten why they got married in the first place? 
I think even a happy and healthy marriage you have those bad days where there is miscommunications, hurt feeling, and unmet expectations. 
I love my hubs, I'm a HAPPY WIFE! But guess what? My Josh and I are human and boy do we fail. 
On those days where it seems we are just "off" or maybe it is a transitional period or what ever life throws at you maybe it would be a good idea to remind your self why you married the man/woman you married. 
First, why marry? Why did you want to get married? We have to start off by wanting to be marri…

Merry Christmas from Aunt LaLa

It is here!! Can you believe it? Christmas is here! I love Christmas, I always have. Christmas was a magical time on my family. I love the lights, the giving hearts, the love, the songs, the warm fuzy feelings, and most of all celebrating the birth of my savior!! Found in the book of Luke... I love reading this story with Josh. It is our own celebration...even though you may hear it or maybe sound just routine.. He truly is the reason for the season!!  You can read about him in Luke 1 and 2

26 God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee,27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” 29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are t…

2,190 days

As of December 1st it has been 2,190 days of being married to my best friend. On December 1, 2007 I was blessed to become a Mrs. to one of the best people I know.

6 years we have been on this journey. I love how one of my friends described Josh and I's relationship

We have had "quite the love affair"

Which is so true. We  have a passion for one another and a longing to be near one another. I miss him when I'm not with him.

I told him last night when we are apart I feel half of me is missing.

We have faced some hard times. We have been jobless...We have lost....We have been betrayed...

Everything we have been through we have gotten stronger. We are far from perfect. We are selfish at times, forget to pray together, we lack in encouraging one another...

However we are passionate about being better. And truly being an example of what God wants marriage to look like.

Here are a few reasons why I love my Josh...

He always kisses me bye, even if it is just to go into anoth…

Heavy Heart

Not really the first post I wanted to write after Thanksgiving, but it is on my heart. It is so upsetting that again we are watching a shooting at a school in Colorado. 
I just do not understand what is going on and why? I know there are several opinions politically and otherwise of the reasons. 
I cannot stop thinking about the shooter today who was a student. I hate what he did, I hate that his actions wounded two other students, I hate that his actions caused these parents and students to experience such a tragedy... 
But I DO NOT hate the shooter. What was going through his mind? Why did he do this? What was he thinking right before he took his own life? 
My stomach is sick, sick with the thoughts of the shooters family and his friends... or anyone who has contact with him... thinking what could I have done? Did I do enough? 
It is just sickening... 
I read on a local news station on Facebook that when they announced that the shooter killed himself there were comments of "go…
