Wedding Update

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

The past two weeks have been very busy with WEDDING stuff, making stuff for the OOT bags, planning our bachellorette/bachelor party, tastings, floral appointments, etc!!

And what fun it has been. Today I received my shower invitation in the mail and it hit me like a ton of bricks. . . I AM GETTING MARRIED.
Now it wasn't in a bad way but in a GREAT way!!!!

At first when I started writing this blog I thought I would do snapshots of the projects I am working on but I decided to post the below list. I found this on a fellow bloggers site and it moved me so much I forwarded it to Joey and we discussed over dinner. If you are getting married it is a great read, if you are married an even better one.

What does it take to have a great marriage:
  1. Make time to get away with your spouse and fully talk through your issues without attacking each other.
  2. Simplify your life so that you have time for what is REALLY important (not hobbies, meaningful time together)
  3. Romance takes time and effort. Force yourself to think of creative ways to express your love for one another.
  4. Confess your sin, arrogance, and selfishness before the Lord who made you and gave you one another.
  5. Set aside time each day for a meaningful discussion with your mate.
  6. Live each day as it was your last with each other-one day it will be.
  7. If your spouse died today would you spend the rest of your life feeling guilty because you allowed the small things in life to separate you?
  8. If your spouse died today, would they go into eternity knowing how crazy in love you were with them?
  9. If your spouse died today would your conscience be clear that every disagreement between you had been worked out with mutual forgiveness?
  10. If your spouse died today could you say that you never kept anything from them? Would you be completely guilt free and face the rest of your life without regret?
