Valentine’s Day can be so corny, but I do appreciate that it always reminds me of how lucky I am. Not because I receive the best gifts, but because I have a man who is completely devoted to our marriage, to me, and to helping us succeed as a team. As I write that, I feel pretty lucky that those feelings and thoughts can come out of my 25 year old mind. Here are a few ways that my husband and I show love for each other throughout the year!
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so if you are looking for some gift inspiration, you have come to the right place! As most of my readers know by now, I am a gift giving fanatic! I have always loved to put a lot of effort and thought into gifts for my friends and family – something that gives it that extra touch to really make it feel special.
This list is filled with a whole lot of red and pink, because why not be festive? I am a true believer in giving gifts year round, and still believe the best gifts are given as surprises and out-of-the-blue. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I have rounded up an eclectic list of some dreamy gift ideas that most ladies would love to receive this holiday.
Recently, I have been thinking a lot about year one of marriage and all of the chaos and beauty that it has encompassed. I have been happily married to my soulmate for a little over a year now and I wanted to share an honest post about the up’s and down’s of our first year, mostly through advice based on our own experiences.
There is a lot of love in the air in my home today! From recently celebrating my one year wedding anniversary a month ago to celebrating my parents 20th wedding anniversary yesterday! We got married at what most would consider a young age, since we both haven’t even celebrated our 25th birthday yet. We said “I do” three years after we began dating and lived together for two of those three years. Two months after becoming husband and wife, we packed up our belongings into two separate cars and drove half-way across the country together from Stillwater, Oklahoma to San Francisco, California to start our new life. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, leaving behind my home, family, friends – everything I had ever known. Little did I know what wonders life had in store for me!
