All you need is love…..and a good dance partner

My husband and I recently went to a wedding and had a wonderful time! It was on a farm, in a barn, and was just kind of magical really. We got to see friends, family and witness the beautiful beginning of a new Mr. and Mrs. I look at my Mr. and am just amazed at how we’ve grown, both individually and together as a couple over the almost nine years of our marriage. Whew!

So here are a few things that I’ve learned:

1. I’m not always right! Oomphf, that one hurts to admit! (Maybe don’t tell my husband I said this one!) I don’t like to be wrong, and when I am, it’s really hard to admit it. I don’t always do it willingly either. But after some thinking, I can, eventually, apologize and see things in a different light.

2. That you need to laugh. Life can throw you some curves, and not always provide you with a warning sign before hand. We’ve found that laughing at how difficult, or completely absurd a situation is can actually make it better. Laugh and lessen the stress.

3. That you need a good dance partner, both literally and figuratively. Well, I LOVE to dance….at weddings, in my kitchen, my car, down the aisles of Target….you get the idea. Luckily for me, my husband is a great dancer and will entertain my need to be on the floor at weddings. More importantly though, is the need for your partner to dance through this life with you; to be with you when it’s easy and fun, to create memories, to celebrate accomplishments, to support one another through disappointments, and most importantly, have the love and understanding when times are difficult.

Those are just a few thoughts I had after the wedding weekend. I hope this finds you all well, and that you have a great start to your week.

Barn Wedding

So gorgeous

What a great evening with family and friends! My youngest cousin got married Saturday night on a farm, and let me just say, it was stunning! To the backdrop of rolling green hills, the bride and groom said their vows to a tearing crowd. Who doesn’t love a love story!? The reception followed in a barn with twinkling lights, GORGEOUS flowers and greens everywhere and drinks served in mason jars. If you needed a break from the band, you could step outside to a fire surrounded by seats of bailed hay. It was, the most original and beautiful wedding I’ve ever attended. Congrats Ricky & Ally!
