September 1, 2015
September 1, 1995…20 years ago today, my hubs and I went out to eat together for the first time. He showed up in church pants and loafers. He downed a salad, garlic bread, chicken parmesan, spaghetti, and then went for the basket of crackers. Wow.
September 1, 2015…the first payment for our son’s braces will be drafted.
So apparently, important things seem to happen on September 1, some more life-changing than others. What better day to launch my new blog?
Twenty years ago, as Chris gobbled and I nibbled, little did we see the road ahead for us. We certainly weren’t thinking about funding orthodontist bills or any other milestones that were ahead.
We weren’t considering how many meals we’d share, how many tears would roll down our cheeks, how many diapers we’d change, how many Legos we’d possess, how many giggles would fill our home, how many miles we’d drive, or just how many times the lid would be left up.
Or even how God would stretch us and grow us and teach us.
We just do life. While there have been some outstanding markers along the way, the bulk of it all comes in the day to day moments. And it’s in the routine, the lessons are found.
Beauty rests in the lessons learned along the way. The lessons learned in the everyday.
The hubs and I have learned a ton in our years together. Wins and losses. Click here to read what winning looks like to us these days.
