12 Years

May 4, 2013

anniversary collage


Today’s prompt for blog every day in May kind of fits with what I wanted to post so I’m going to go with it.

Day 4: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it

There are many wedding anniversary quotes, some cute, some lovely and some funny. The two I used in the collage, always speak to me.

I truly love the second one because after being married for 12 years, I do believe it rings true.

Marriage is not always easy, some days are harder than others. It does take work to keep a marriage together…

But in the end it is so worth it. I love being married to my one and only – even on the days where I want to beat him over the head with a frying pan! 🙂

I love the family we created. I love the way he makes me feel safe in his arms. I love the way he can make me smile and tickle me out of a bad mood.

And on the days that are more cloudy than sunny, all I have to remember is how he made me feel when we first met – the bad boy in his leather jacket – makes me melt every time.

I love you my darling!!! Happy Anniversary!

    Hmmm, ‘bad boy in his leather jacket’ – no, no, I am not (!) curious at all 😉 Love your quotes.

      Ha ha ha. There really isn’t too much of a story… he always wore this leather jacket and drove a motorcycle when we first met and I loved it!!! 🙂 One of our first dates was a bike ride along the ocean.

    Happy Anniversary! I love the second one too. I hadn’t heard that before but so true. Jon is my favorite person to annoy me 😉

      Thank you. A quiet day of lounging around – much needed – is what we had. It was pretty wonderful! 🙂

    Sometimes I want to choke my husband with his hole ridden boxers. Kidding…maybe.
    12 years is such an amazing marriage. Not a lot of couples nowadays are not sticking with all the ups and downs that marriage entails.
    You both look so happy and so very much in love.
    Cheers to this and many more.
    Hide the frying pan though.

      Thanks, Kimberly. It’s true that many people don’t stick with the ups and downs but like life a marriage is not always rainbows and butterflies but we do our best to muddle through and try to enjoy the good times. 🙂
