A Daddy’s Heart {A Father’s Day Tribute}

Father's Day was always a very special day in my house growing up. All six of us kids would elbow our way into the kitchen to help mom serve up the best breakfast of the year and then fight over who got to pour his orange juice. Some lucky duck would think quick and race into the closet to deliver his bathrobe and slippers. I'm pretty sure he got non-stop back rubs from the moment he woke up until he finally peeled us off to put us to bed at night {enter the Velcro sound effect}. We would shower him with gifts, homemade cards with scribbled names and always - always - mom would initiate a craft (usually something he could wear) that had all of our hand-prints on it. If you peek in his closet today you can still see the ratty sweatshirts with fabric-paint hand outlines boasting 2, then 3, then 4 and 5 then 6 sets of prints, names and ages. He wore them proudly and we loved to go up and find out hands throughout the year and compare how they had grown. Needless to say, we loved our dad - adored our dad - and there was one very simple reason for that: he adored us.

I'm so blessed that in my marriage that's not the case. … Continue reading 5 Ways To Be Happily Married

The Best Valentine’s Day I Ever Had

The best Valentine's Day I ever had snuck up on me quite unexpectedly last year as, I will be honest, I wasn't exactly anticipating a show-stopper. We were going on 5 wonderful years of marriage, had a 3-year-old with Baby 2.0 well on the way, and my idea of a night of bliss was getting … Continue reading The Best Valentine’s Day I Ever Had

Five Words That Changed My Marriage {Part Two}

As I mentioned in Part One of this series (did you miss it? Find it here), my husband and I grew up together. We know each other about as good as anyone can.

Five Words That Changed My Marriage {Part One}

Many people have expressed the sentiment, 'I married my best friend'.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to grow up together; he was my first and last crush - I was in … Continue reading Five Words That Changed My Marriage {Part One}
