September Project marriage


I missed being a part of the August Project Marriage mostly b/c we were moving, and the challenge had to do with making your bedroom a haven, and doing something special in the area of decoration or cleaning. Well first of all, we were moving, second of all, we got rid of our bed due to -shhhhhhhhhh don't tell anyone- bed bugs, and thirdly i just plain old didnt' do anything different, new or exciting to our bedroom. :( And we are still sleeping on the floor, maybe that's more romantic, that's what we're trying to pretend.

Anyways - September's challenge is to post a picture of us Then and Now. That's fun! I love looking through old pictures, but there are so many to choose from - so I might put a few more than one of each time frame. :) It's funny to see that even in less than 5 short years we have changed so much.

Date Night 

Just a couple of weeks ago
now we're are Coloradoan Residents
We have changed in our physical appearance, but most of all in our love for each other. It's fun to look back at the old pictures and reminisce about how carefree and loving-life we were back then. But i wouldn't trade it at all for the maturity and joy that we have now. The comfortableness that we have with each other now is irreplaceable. After going through births, breastfeeding, sleepless nights, life changing decisions and trusting in God together as a couple our love for each other is strong and mature. We still love each other to pieces. I see his unfailing forgiveness to me and his unchanging love and that makes me feel secure. He is wise and leads me and our family. We are responsible adults now and we can't be as carefree as we were before - but I wouldn't change it for the world. Sure we have our hard days with each other and we don't always "like" each other. he frustrates me and I frustrate him sometimes. But we are committed and look forward to the rest of our lives together. i wonder how we'll look in 5 more years. :)
