from here to eternity


Choose your love. Love your choice.
Can I just say that life is so good?! Eric and I have been making a serious effort to put each other before the other and to make each other feel loved. And it feels so good! 
No matter how badly we try to avoid it; no matter how badly we don't want it to affect us... life gets crazy and we put our relationship on the back burner. A few months ago I felt like we were drowning as we dog paddled as quickly as possible to make our marriage #1 on the list again (I know, that was totally dramatic and cheesy). We made goals and more importantly, we've followed through with our goals and for the most part? I don't even feel like we are trying anymore. It just feels so good and so natural to just be in love, you know? 
Eric is my best friend, my forever love and totally worth fighting for! I know that we will have highs and lows in our marriage even though I prefer to have the perfect "fairytale" marriage, ha ha! But I couldn't be more thankful to have Eric by my side, from here to eternity!
Choose your love. Love your choice. No matter how hard it may be at times. It is always, always worth it!

This is so true! You two are so cute, and so obviously in love. Isn't it so great to know that you have found someone that you know you will love for the rest of your life, and that couldn't be more perfect for you!

We are going through this now and I feel I'm doing more effort than Keith. Keith takes stress a lot differently than I do, he really lets it get to him and this is a hard time at work so I get it so its best to just let him be. I'm a lot more busier than he, and this PT job at night doesn't help. Ugh, I hate writing about it but its life.

It makes me smile to see others making the effort on both ends :)

Good for you. It's very important to put your marriage first. I saw a post on Instagram the other day about how one Mom puts her kids before her husband.
That in my opinion is wrong, not healthy or Bibilical.

good for you . I need to do the same... Love the photos

Sarah said...

that last photo is so cute! But I agree Love is a choice, and you have to wake up everyday and decide to love this person, and make it work. Looks like you guys are doing great!

We did the same thing over the last year. It is so easy to lose focus about what really matters. But when we prioritize, everything just seems to fall into place and we couldn't be happier for it! :) So happy you two are still in love. You're making yourselves a real life fairytale marriage.

Its great you guys put your marriage first! I know I am guilty of not doing that at times. It is challenging with kiddos ;)

I think all marriages are a little work. A good marriage is one where both of you want to take the time and effort to make it work. Cute pics ;)

" Choose your love. Love your choice. No matter how hard it may be at times. It is always, always worth it!" So true. So beautifully written. Thank you Lord for free will and for being the Source of our love!!! xx

Such a beautiful post!!!

Relationships in general, but marriage even more so, they're so HARD. It isn't like with a friend where you can take a week away from each other when things get hard. It's every single day.

Glad you and Eric are back on solid ground and enjoying your marriage so much!

Sarah @ The Not Quite Military Wife said...
