Do you have any fun summer plans?

I’ll get us started …

This summer Steve and I will mostly likely be staying local. Having just bought our first home, our time, energy, and money are all being poured into getting it settled and just the way we want it. Having waited nearly six years for our first home, we’re quite content with that being our summer plans. We do have a couple of small trips planned that aren’t far from home, and we have family members coming in to stay with us too, which will be so much fun! Honestly, I think it’s going to be the perfect summer for us!

Okay, it’s your turn!

Congratulations to our April Talking Tuesday winner … Kristen!!! We love hearing from you all, so keep joining us for your chance to win this month’s giveaway!

What is one of your favorite physical features of your spouse or significant other? Why?

I’ll get us started …

As most of you will feel too (hopefully), there are so many things I love about my husband! I think he is the most handsome man ever, so it’s tough to pick just one favorite physical feature of his. That being said, I would have to say his eyes. He has beautiful blue eyes, but my favorite thing about them is how tender and gentle they are. When I look into his eyes, I just feel at ease and comforted. Like I’ve arrived home. It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul, and my husband definitely has a comforting, tender soul that is gentle and kind. Those beautiful blue eyes are definitely one of my favorite physical features of his!

Okay, it’s your turn!

What are some of your other favorite marriage/relationship resources, and why?

I’ll get us started …

I’m actually not going to respond to this one because I really want to hear what your thoughts are on this. Whether it is a book, video, website, organization, magazine, podcast, or anything in between, I’d love to hear how you all find encouragement, support, and inspiration for your marriage or relationship!

What are your plans for celebrating Thanksgiving this year? What are you looking forward to the most?

I’ll get us started …

Every Christmas and Thanksgiving my husband, Steve, and I alternate between our two families. Having his parents in the bay area of California and mine in Pennsylvania, it was the only fair formula we could come up with. Based on that rotation, we will be spending Thanksgiving in Pennsylvania with my family this year, and I couldn’t be more excited! There really is no place like home, and I can’t wait to enjoy my mom’s traditional Thanksgiving feast while spending time with the family! What I’m looking forward to the most though is being with my entire family! As we get older, it gets more and more difficult for my three sisters and me to all wind up in the same place (we all live in different states), but this year that’s exactly what will be happening. All 9 of us will be bunking up in my parents’ home tucked up in the scenic mountains of Central Pennsylvania catching up, laughing, and just enjoying our time together. My heart is so full just thinking about it 🙂

Okay, it’s your turn!

Form an acrostic of things you appreciate about your spouse, family, and/or life with the word “THANKFUL”? Feel free to explain your word choices.

I’ll get us started …

T – Trustworthy: How thankful I am that I can trust my husband enough to be vulnerable with dreams, fears, thoughts, ideas, and emotions that I otherwise wouldn’t share with someone.

H – Health: What a blessing it is to have our health. So many are fighting for their lives out there, and it’s easy to take our health for granted.

A – Awesome: I have an awesome family that I can share with, talk to, laugh with, cry with, and count on to pray, support, and encourage me no matter what.

N – Noble: This is a word that describes my husband well. I am so thankful for the godly man that he is!

K – Kindhearted: I feel like this describes my husband and my family so well! I honestly have never met a kinder, more thoughtful, generous, and loving bunch than my loved ones, and I so admire that about them!

F – Fun: My husband, Steve, and I have the best time together! Whether it’s grocery shopping, watching a movie, traveling, and everything in between, we have a blast together, and I love that!

U – Understanding: I appreciate that I can go to my husband, family, and friends and find understanding there. There’s something about knowing they are listening and care that makes the burdens of life that much lighter.

L – Love: To love and be loved is simply one of the greatest joys of life.

Okay, it’s your turn!

What is one thing you are thankful for today?

I’ll get us started …

It’s always tough to pick just one thing I’m thankful for because the Lord has been so good and gracious to me. He’s blessed me with so much, and it’s difficult to limit His goodness to just one thing. For the sake of this “exercise” though, the one thing I am thankful for today is that God has given me the most wonderful earthly partner to do this life with – my husband Steve. God knew just what I needed, and although the road was bumpy in finding in him, I am so thankful I was patient and strong enough to wait for God’s best. My husband is such a wonderful companion, co-pilot, best friend, and leader, and his love for me constantly points me back to God’s love for me. My marriage, my husband – they are the greatest blessings in my life, and I am beyond thankful that the Good Lord entrusted me with these treasures!

Okay, it’s your turn!
