The hubs and I decided to spend some more time together at night reading a devotion together.
We read our own thing, but we realized we really need to reconnect at night.
With the stresses that baby brings, sometimes we put our marriage on the back burner and I forget that it is EXTREMELY important for the hubs and I to be connected.
We are enjoying these past few days, reading and really expressing our feelings to each other.
My husband loves to joke. I say 80% of the time he is funny and likes to joke, but sometimes I feel like I'm the complete opposite.
He makes it hard for things to be "serious" and I on the other hand like to take things seriously.
I love that he likes to "laugh" things off and not dwell on the "little" things but you know sometimes I wish he would be more serious.
That being said, I love that man. When he gets serious and "deep" in conversation. WHOA he blows my mind away, and the sweet words that come out, I love that when he means something, he means it.
He doesn't losely say things just to get me to be quiet or becuase he thinks I want to hear it ( although sometimes I wish he would just say those things) haha. We grew up in different types of homes. I grew up in a very affectionate, emotional, bare all home, which he grew up in a more reseverd home.
Marriage is super hard to work on. It is.
Its not easy, and I often tell my friends who are about to be married, to think about their home life, how they grew up, values things that are "obvious" but when your blinded by love, you often forget to look at those things.
It will affect the way your husband looks at life.
Other times, if they have been in a bad home situation, they don't want to repeat the same mistakes. They want to be better and different in their own family.
A marriage is definitely worth fighting for.


  1. This is so true. My husband and I like to think that there is nothing more important for our daughter than us taking the time to reconnect, to strengthen our relationship and fall in love all over again. I hope you and your husband enjoy your reconnecting!!

  2. I totally know where you're coming from. It's the same at out house. I'm from a very open, affectionate, get it all out kind of family and my husband is from more of the 'pretend it'll all go away and bottle it up' just fly by the wind kind of family so sometimes things do get frustrating. I totally agree that it's really important to also take the time to reconnect as husband and wife and not just dad and mom. Good for you guys! =)

  3. What a great post!! I need to get my husband to do one with me too!!
