Happy Monday, y’all!
My husband and I were married two days before Christmas 9 years ago! The Christmas season has always been our favorite and celebrating our marriage during the that time is so very special to us. This year, however, because of illness and things that just couldn’t be avoided, we weren’t able to celebrate on our actual anniversary date. Even though we celebrated late it, was a really special night!
We got all dressed up, went out for cocktails and then an amazing dinner. It was exactly what we needed to reconnect without the kiddos to talk and be together. We’ve learned in the past 9 years that marriage is hard. Really hard. We love one another and it’s still hard. It has taken a lot of work and compromise. It’s easy to look at pretty pictures and think that a couple has a perfect marriage, but I want to be completely transparent here. We have gone through some of the most special moments of our lives together and we have been through some of the most difficult times of our lives together. I pray that God will continue to bless our marriage as we navigate life together. I love this man and can’t wait to see what lies ahead for us!
I had such a hard time deciding what to wear for our anniversary, and I was so excited when I found this dress! How cute is it layered? It is going to be an extremely versatile piece, I can already tell! It can stand on it’s own or be layered with a blouse or a leather jacket. The possibilities are endless and I’m thrilled!
Stay tuned this week as I will be sharing the special gift I gave my husband!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
