Wednesday Keith and I celebrated 15 years of marriage! Y’all, I cannot even count how many times I have said to him “can you believe it’s been 15 years?”. It really just doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that we said I do and started this journey together. Some days, maybe even years, have been much longer than others but they have all been worth it. I love to look back and see how much we have grown together as a couple and all that we have accomplished.
I thought today I would take a little walk down memory lane and share 15 things I’ve learned which have helped us hang on and build a strong foundation in our marriage. If you want to see how this shindig of a marriage got started you can read up on how we met and got engaged.
Kids are part of you but are not the center of your marriage. This is one of my favorite pictures from our trip in 2009. I think it is so important to remember that while your children are so very special, will shape you as individuals and stretch you to the core; continuing to nurture the relationship between the two of you is even more important. Being able to stand strong together, celebrating the successes and the tough stuff with your kids is so much sweeter when the foundation of the family is strong.
Marriage is not easy but nothing worth it in life ever is! So thankful to be sharing life with this man.
