Hey Friends 🙂
As you may remember, John and I celebrated our 14th Anniversary last week. Woo Hoo!
Years ago, our wonderful marriage mentors suggested that John and I take time away once each season to reconnect, enjoy each other’s company, have fun, and relax.
We’ve graciously accepted the challenge!
And whereas we’ve not been perfect at getting away once a season, John and I have been intentional about going on “mini-moons” as often as we can ~ especially to celebrate our Anniversaries!
So this past weekend, we enjoyed a special Anniversary “mini moon” to….(any guesses?)
After a long, hard marriage season, it was time for us to getaway. We had airline miles and Marriott points to cash in, so I asked John, “If you could go anywhere, where would you like to go?”
I was picturing LA or Hawaii or Texas, but I didn’t realize John had never been to Boston. I knew he likes boats, water, relaxing, etc, and I like fancy hotels, fun adventures, and Starbucks. Boston was a great compromise :).
Here are a few snapshots…
John and I have both enjoyed our mini-moons over the past 14 years of marriage! A special thank you to our marriage mentors, Doug and Judie Childress, for giving us the challenge many years ago!
And a HUGE thanks to my parents for watching the 3 kids all weekend (Jake is still in Colorado for the summer), and my inlaws for keeping our crazy dog Rocky ~ bless you!!!!)
What about for you?? What’s the best nuggest of marriage wisdom you’ve received?? I’d love to hear from you!!
Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*. Have a wonderful, joy-filled day!!
P.S. I’m linking up today with Jen and friends at the Soli Deo Gloria Sisterhood. Be sure to check out this amazing sisterhood of women!
I think the best marriage advice I’ve heard is this simple word: FORGIVE. So glad y’all had fun!
When disagreements arise, remember that:
1) Your mate is not the “enemy;” keep the issue, the issue.
2) Each side needs to learn to give up the ‘right’ to be right.
3) Just because you do things or think differently it doesn’t mean
the other person is wrong!
