Loving My Husband Friday

Loving My Husband Friday is for taking the time to focus on the positives of marriage. A time to build up your marriage and your spouse. Focus on something you love about your husband,
something he did to encourage you this week, or just a tip on how to keep your marriage strong. Let your husband know you're bragging on him...everyone loves praise and accolades. Try to spend the rest of your week focusing on all the great traits of your spouse...especially when your tempted to focus on the bad! And don't forget to pray for your husband and marriage as you write your post.

Add a link to your post to Mr. Linky. Then pray for the marriages of the others who post, and give each other a little encouragement to keep our marriages strong!

Today is our 10th Anniversary!!! 10 years ago on a VERY HOT June evening we became Husband and Wife. It was the beginning of a wonderful life together!!

We didn't get a real honeymoon (we went to Cedar Point for a couple of days) because we were poor college students! So, Aaron planned a trip for us for our 10th anniversary. I had never flown before, so he wanted to make sure we went somewhere we could fly to (and fly cheaply, too). About the time he was planning, we learned I was expecting Sarah. I figured we would just cancel the trip...I told him (and everyone who would listen) that we would never go anywhere! But he had other plans. He came home one day at the end of the summer telling me we were going to Las a month!

So, in October of last year we took our anniversary trip to Las Vegas. We went to Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon, and Death Valley. We had a great time just being together...alone...with no kids. Even though I doubted him...he pulled off a wonderful 10 year anniversary gift. And, since it happened last fall...he has more presents planned for me! I love my husband so much...and not just because he spoils me so much!!

I'm looking forward to ten more years (and ten more...and ten more...and ten more...and ten more...). I married my very best friend and love every minute I spend with him. Happy Anniversary, Aaron!!


  1. Happy Anniversary Aaron and Shannon!! You had such a beautiful wedding, and I was so glad to be there for it!! In case I've never said it before, I'm so glad that Aaron married you!

  2. Happy Anniversary! We did not take much of a honeymoon either but we are saving up for our 10 year Anniversary. We will also turn 30 that year so we are going all out and planning to go to Hawaii - just the two of us! It is still a goal - but it is a goal we are sharing together! It will be 7 years for us on Monday! Still trying to find a sitter so we can go out;-)

  3. Happy Anniversary! That is wonderful!

  4. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! I always forget you all got married the same year as us!!! I am so glad you were able to get away without kiddos last fall to celebrate!! Isn't it such fun to get away every once in awhile just to focus on each other!! Have a GREAT WEEKEND!!!


Let me know what you're thinking!!
