Marriage Matters: Gotta Getaway

Marriage Matters-Gotta Getaway

Today we're off on our California getaway for my 30th birthday--even though it's not until next month!

I'm so excited for this trip, this time to recharge, reconnect, and just be together. I almost feel like it's our honeymoon all over again. We've done several just-the-two-of-us trips, but this one seems different for some reason. I love this man, and I'm so excited to get away with him while we celebrate my old age!

Marriage Matters: Tuesday Ten

Marriage Matters- Tuesday Ten

I've been missing Tuesday Ten since I started the #write31days challenge, so I'm bringing it back! It's Tuesday Ten: Marriage Edition.

1. I thought I only wanted to be married for a short time before having kids. In reality, we waited almost five years to add to our family, and it was the perfect amount time!

2. I cry when marriages fail on TV. I just can't handle the thought.

3. At the ripe ol' age of 21, I had no idea what to expect in marriage, but we have grown and learned together. It's been an amazing ride so far--I can't wait to see where the journey takes us.

4. When Mr. Gray isn't home, I don't sleep well. You can find me with any combination of the following next to my bed: knives, guns, cell phone, landline phone, baseball bat, and the list goes on and on... I don't do well without him here.

5. We tend to be the perfect balance for each other--for all the things we agree on, we have at least as many that we are opposite about. The fun part is working together to find the perfect solution for us.

6. I am not the iron-er in our family--and for that I am very grateful.

7. I'm really excited about about the half-way mark--you know, the one where we've been together more than we haven't been together. We're almost there!

8. Mr. Gray used to leave fun gifts in my car in high school. I still love his little surprises!

9. We'd love to visit the historic baseball fields in the US. It was a trip we considered for our honeymoon. One of these days we'll get to do it!

Baseball Fun

10. I love doing life with this husband of mine. I can't imagine anyone else beside me until the end of my days. Mushy? Maybe. True? Absolutely.

Marriage Matters: Glory in Grace

Marriage Matters- Glory in Grace

Thirty-one days of writing is a lot of days. I'm going to do it, though, because that's what I do when I set my mind to something (remember those three half-marathons; boy, I'm glad that's over).

Family

Being married is a lot of days, too. It's a lot of days to do something--it's a lifetime. So maybe that's the metaphor here. Why blog? Why write? Why be committed to this space for a lot of days? See, every time I sit back and prioritize this space of mine always finds it's way to the top. I truly believe God has given be stories to share. I believe He has given me this "normal" life to live to share the glory of His grace in the every day living we do.

Family

I don't have a huge platform or thousands of readers, but if there is one person who is helped by something I post, then everything I've posted is worth it. If one mom felt better about her grocery store trip, if one person dealt with their grief and saw God's beauty, if one family was able to share their heart for adoption, if someone just needed to know someone else is going through what they're going through, then it's all worth it.
