Wow, it seems just like yesterday, we said I do. Now, July 15, 2016 will
mark 10 years that I have been blessed with a wonderful husband. Going
back to the beginning, I wished I could say I would not do anything
different, but in fact I would do a lot different. What would I go back
and tell myself, if I could go back and talk to myself on my wedding
day or a few days after, let’s be real nobody wanted to hear anything
on their wedding day but I do. But, here is what I would tell myself:
1. Celebrate every anniversary. Don’t take them for granted. With the
divorce rate so high and the influx of social media. It’s a great
accomplishment when you reach every year. Celebrate like you have
never celebrated before.
2. Kiss often. This is one of the most overlooked things that can
truly keep you connected and keep the passion gates flowing!!!!!!!
Make sure you brush your teeth before you get to bed.
3. Make him and keep him a priority. Of all the women in the world, he
chose you. Let’s not overlook like ( please know we are very clear, he
got a GEM in you. So many times with kids, work, kids, did I say kids.
Yes, those minions. it can make it easy to put him to the back burner
but try to keep him a priority ( or at least make him feel like he is)
4. Don’t just say I love you, show him!
5. Put time and energy into him as your would your children’s
birthday party etc. He deserves to feel special too.
Marriage is a lot of work, but we have dreamed of being a wife and
getting married since we were little girls, now let’s continue to make
our King feel like a King. We don’t want him beheading his Queen and
finding another one, do we. Side note, I told my husband if anything
every happened to me and he remarried. I would come down from heaven
and pee in his ear.
