Our Wedding Vows Part 1

As soon as the cowboy asked me to be his forever I knew I wanted to write our own vows. Here I was thinking this would be an easy task, writing all the things I want to promise to my future husband. Little did I know I wouldn’t finish my vows till the week of my wedding! I know, I know, I’m terrible but life happens. With today’s trend to marry at convenience I wanted to make my vow to the cowboy to ring true and personal. Something to remind myself and my soon to be husband, at the time, the reasons I love him. Writing out my vows gave me the opportunity to sit down and think about why I love the man I was about to marry and what God had in store for us. Even if you don’t plan on reciting your own vows on your wedding day in front of all your friends and family I would encourage you to still exchange these vows personally. There’s nothing more powerful than writing out why you love someone and can’t wait to start forever with them. One thing that helped me when writing my vows was reading inspiration from others. Today I’m posting the vows I wrote for my cowboy on our wedding day to inspire the importance of marriage.

“Chris, from the moment we started this adventure together I loved how spontaneous, funny, caring and respectful you were, not to mention how much you love God. Today I vow to give hope to your dreams, and encouragement to your goals, I vow to put God first in our marriage because without Him we wouldn’t be here today. I vow to stand with you through the storms of life, and learn how to dance in the rain. I vow to always hold you hand because the spaces between your fingers fit perfectly in mine, and I vow to be your wife, companion, and best friend all the days of my life.”

I love being able to look back on the wedding vows we exchanged and remember why we first fell in love. It’s a sweet reminder of the grander plan God has for our marriage. No matter what life throws in our path these vows serve as a reminder of how it all started, and why.

Happy New Year! 

2015 has been a year of growth in so many personal ways for me. I’m excited to see where 2016 takes me in every aspect of my life. A new year is like the beginning of another book in the series. Full of new excitement, new possibilities, and new plot twists! And that’s how I feel about 2016. I’m ready for some upcoming changes, and to see what God has in store. It’s always popular on the first day of a new year for everyone to post their new years resolutions. I don’t know about you but those never work out for me…

So instead of a new years resolution for 2016 I vow to create a full life.

I vow to love my husband fiercely, and unconditionally.

I vow to make the most of every opportunity.

I vow to travel, and travel often.

I vow to give my all in our ministries at church and in our daily life.

I vow to wear bold lipstick, because life is to short.

I vow to cherish every single moment with family.

I vow to take hundreds of pictures.

I vow to try new things, except sea food.

I vow to forgive quickly, and often.

I vow to try my very best.

I vow to inspire others, while inspiring myself.

I vow to call home every week.

I vow to eat slightly better… ok ok I vow to eat a lot better.

I vow to not wait till tomorrow.

I vow to have more date nights.

I vow to laugh frequently.

I vow to release perfection.

No matter what happens this year remember you have the choice to make your dreams and goals come true! So make 2016 the year of DOING instead of waiting! I hope you all have an amazing day and a wonderful weekend. Don’t forget to grab your 2016 free phone wallpaper!
