A Marriage Refresher

Blurry but lovely all the same!

This weekend, we went to the wedding of a beautiful friend of mine from college. She looked exquisite and filled to the brim with joy. I just love seeing my friends find their soulmates!

One of the many things I love about weddings is that they're like little marriage refreshers for me and my husband. We listen to the homily and think about our own relationship and the little ways we can love each other better. We reminisce about our wedding day and laugh and smile together. We remember the exact moments when we stated our vows and get a little teary (I do, anyway!). We think about how our bond has changed and grown and been strengthened over the course of our marriage so far. We always leave weddings feeling so happy for our friends and thankful for our marriage and glad for this wonderful thing called love.

So thank you, J and J! For sharing your special day and allowing us the chance to renew our own love.

    Thank YOU, Kate for being a part of our day and for your beautiful and humbling words! <3

  2. oh YAY love this way of looking at attending weddings. next time I see Jon is for a friend's wedding - I fly over on the 8th and the wedding is on the 16th and I fly back on the 17th - and I bet the wedding will be even more poignant as a refresher for us :)

  3. Especially since you've been apart for a little while--going to a wedding together will be such a romantic refresher for you!
