Marriage Matters: First Things First

So, you want to get married? Well, find the boy of your dreams and get with it!

I know, I know, it's not always that easy. It would seem, though, that some tend to think the work goes into planning the wedding, rather than making the marriage. Don't get me wrong, I wanted my wedding to be "perfect" just as much as the next bride--and to this day, I still haven't found anything I would change about it (except I would have had a hashtag; you know, if hashtags were a thing in 2006).

It's so easy to get caught up in the flowers, the dress, the cake, the food, the music, the soap in the bathroom: all the tiny details that make a wedding can also make you crazy.

The truth of the matter is, though, that none of that stuff makes a difference in the long run. It's fun, and pretty, but it's not going to make or break you. What makes a difference is the work you put in as a couple to get ready to become husband and wife. And--once you are man and wife, the work you put in from there will only make you stronger. So, seal that deal with a kiss and know that the real work comes after the party is over!

Let the wedding serve as a beginning of your life together. Let it be the starting gun to a life of togetherness, coupledom, wedded bliss.

Surround yourself with lots of your favorite people, celebrate, and ask them to be prayful for you on your new journey as a married couple. Enjoy your wedding day, and look back on it fondly as the day two became one.

Marriage Matters

Marriage is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. When I first heard about #write31days, I knew marriage would be my topic before I even decided I was going to write. Marriage Matters. Tune in through the month of October to find out more.

Marriage Matters

For the month of October, I'll be talking about marriage. You can click straight on the Marriage Matters button in the side bar, or sign up for email updates to receive it in your inbox each day. I'll also link each post up here

10 Before 31

1. Today's September 30th, which means I'm wrapping books. This was such a fun activity last year that I'm doing it again! (Click here to see the full post.)

Fall Wrap Up

2. October is going to be quite busy for us! I can't wait for our California trip--just Mr. Gray, myself, and I on an little escape for my 30th (yikes--THIRTIETH) birthday (which isn't actually until November, but scheduling conflicts don't stop for birthdays).

3. Beginning tomorrow, I will be doing the 31 Days challenge. I hadn't heard of it until Sunday, so I'm getting it all finalized, but I think it's going to be good! If you're participating,  let me know in the comments!

4. This fall weather (you know, Texas fall, still warmer than most places) makes me want to get outside! The boy has been out cruising on his Gator checking the deer feeder this morning while I attempted to work from the porch (too bad the router didn't reach). Of course, this weather also means my sunroof is always open. My favorite!

5. I ordered a custom shirt for our soccer games, and it is cheesy to the max! I love it! I can't wait to wear it this weekend! (See also: we had our first soccer game last Saturday, but the photos are on my big camera and not on here.)

6. I'm not a fan of multiple punctuation marks at the end of sentences; however, now that I know
that ?! has an actual name, interrobang, I find myself more compelled to use it.

7. Yesterday was National Coffee Day, and I didn't even have one drop. Something's wrong with that picture.

8. Did anyone happen to watch that Arkansas game this weekend? Oh, my. I wasn't sure we were going to pull that one off.

9. Some days I think working from home is harder than working in an office; the days all blend together when you're working where you live. I've blurred my boundaries a little, and I've got to get it back under control.

10. Tomorrow's the day I've been waiting for since my TiVo didn't record the last episode of Gilmore Girls all those years ago: Gilmore Girls comes to Netflix. Productivity, I'll see you in seven seasons!
