Justin and I celebrated our 17 month anniversary on Saturday. I couldn't help but go back down memory lane of that day, and reminisce with my sweet hubby on the most romantic moments of the day.
Like holding hands before the ceremony, and praying...
Seeing each other face for the first time, as I walked down the aisle...
That first kiss EVER...
And that long, slow kiss, the first time we were alone, that seriously made me dizzy, and feel as if I was going to faint ...
I thought about those sweet days, and gloriously long nights of our honeymoon too...
Yes. Those were some very romantic times. But not necessarily the most romantic of times of our married life.
I've always dreamed those sort of memories would stand out as the most "romantic" of my life. But after almost a year and a half of marriage, I've seen a more beautiful side of marriage. And yes, an even more romantic side.
Like, lying on the couch together watching football, me falling asleep, then waking up to hear him say how much he loves it when I fall asleep in his arms.
Sending random texts through the day saying "I miss you".
Finding the dishes washed and the kitchen spotless.
Being called beautiful, and being told I smell fine, with sweat dripping down the face and neck after a 30 minute run.
Hugging him when he walks in from work.
Him mowing the yard, then clearing my walking path of any clippings.
And back massages when monthly cramps are bringing me to tears.
I have found that it's not always the "big" moments in married life that have made me love my husband more. But the little moments, that occur everyday.
His never ending patience with my faults. And his unending love in my pain.
It's the everyday, ordinary things, that have been the most romantic moments of my life.
What is something your hubby does for you, to show his daily love?
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
