5/12/15 – Day 471: Talk and Create Moments

I went back and read the first post in this blogging project (although it’s not really a blogging project – it was my way to teach myself to be more intentional in our marriage).

The two main commitments did not include writing a blog post every day.

These were the commitments:

  1. To talk to you: During the day, in the evening, to make time to check in with you.
  2. To create moments: To be the leader in doing stuff that is fun or challenging or even charitable.

Those aren’t commitments, though, for just a year. It can take us our whole lives for me to get really good at both of those things.

Basically, talking to you is learning to excavate your heart – to learn your hopes and dreams and the things that make you hurt.

And creating moments? It’s acting on what I discover about your heart.

Both of these things… as we approach our 10th anniversary in 2 days.. these are lifelong commitments. I’m not always going to be awesome at them.

You have the right to remind me, though. 🙂 Remind… not nag (I say that in jest because you are NOT a nag at all).

I love you and want to spend my life talking and getting to know you and creating moments that will grow us and bring us joy.

4/8/15 – Day 437: My 15 Minute Workout

So for your birthday I bought you ‘www.realfitnessmoms.com’ because I think you have a ton to offer. You’ve been working out consistently for like 2-3 years. It’s impressive.

I asked you to put together a quick hit 15 minute workout for me.

You did. It probably took you all of 10 minutes. It took me a solid 15 minutes and a lot of sweat (and full disclosure, as I write this 2 days later –  my abs, butt, and legs are still hurting pretty bad).

You know your stuff and you should get certified and teach this stuff to real moms who want to get fit.

4/5/15 – Day 434: Easter Sunday!

He is risen! (He is risen indeed!)

Glad to celebrate with you and are little hunters.

Thankful that you and I have experienced the truth of the Resurrection. I pray that we live in it and grow in it. And we can lead these three young hearts and minds in it.

2/14/15 – Day 384: Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, Sweetie!

I’ll share a little from our V Day date post-V-day.

For today, I wanted to suggest that our love is the perfect combo of The Middle’s Valentine’s Day special this year.

No fuss and comfy like the parents:

A little awkward like Brick’s:

And just fun and cute and sometimes off-the-wall like Axl:

You are an awesome Valentine, all the way around.
