happy valentine's day!

here's a few pics through the years--dating, the day after we got engaged, our wedding day and just a couple months ago. i am so blessed to be married to my best friend! i got to share with some of the college students some of my insights on dating and marriage last weekend. some of my main points were--don't worry so much about being "head over heels" in love. those crazy feelings last about 3 months. then its your friendship that takes you through. marry a godly man who will make a great dad. marry someone who lets you be yourself. we've been through a lot--job changes, moves to different cities, having a child with a disability, having a typical toddler :) etc. i can honestly say i a love steve more today than the day i married him! happy valentine's day!

Okay how cute are you guys? So fun, thanks for sharing these pictures! Good insights about marriage too.

(And the comment about having a typical toddler made me laugh!)

You guys have been through a lot-and with such grace.
I so agree. Marry a godly man. Marry your best friend. Life is good.

Thanks also for all your thoughts. As a single person it's so easy to be swept up in the Hollywood view of relationships. (It must be love at first sight or forget it, etc.) A great reminder about what lasts.

That's very true about friendship carrying a marriage through the years.
I just recently found your blog and I enjoy reading it - all the best to you and your family.
