{Thankful Thursday} My Love.

Morning and welcome back for Thankful Thursday. I'm going to start out by letting you all know this is going to be our last Thankful Thursday for a little while. We are going to take off the summer months and hopefully resume after. You know how busy the summer can get, we thought it'd just be a good idea to take a little break and soak up the summer. We hope you'll continue to link up once we return.

This post is going to be a little different. I'm dedicating it to my love, my best friend, my husband. Sorry if it's an annoying or mushy post, but he deserves it.


I just want to be able to look back and remember how special he made me feel for my 28th birthday

All the sweet little gestures, they were so appreciated. 


This guy went above and beyond. He left me a little gift and note every morning the week of my birthday. I saved those little notes. He bought me things off my wish list then spoiled me with them the day before and day of my birthday. He made reservations at a surprise location for me and told me I had to wear a dress. He truly made me feel like a princess and I will never forget how I felt that day, well more than just that day. 

No, life is NOT about the material things. I'm not high maintenance. BUT, what girl doesn't enjoy being spoiled every once in a while. This year was just extra special, and I want to remember it all. 

We've been married for almost 6 years. I was thinking last night how incredibly blessed I am to have Dustin as my partner as we go through life. Life is fun with him.


I enjoy doing life with him. 

We can be silly.


We can be adventurous. 


We can just hangout at home, and it's just fun. I cherish that.


So, thank you Dustin for making my 28th birthday a day I'll always remember. It was truly special. 

I love you and am so happy and thankful that you chose me.

  1. You both looked so great for your birthday dinner!! That picture of you guys running/jumping over that fire- well if that's not what marriage is about (getting through tough times together) then I don't know what a better photo would be!!

  10. Happy belated birthday! This was such a sweet post--and I love how he spoiled you for your birthday! I found you through instagram (I love the new explore update that actually shows you posts related to others you've liked). I happened to read through your brother's story also. What an incredible situation and what an amazing support you are to him. My constant prayers are with you and your family.

  11. This is so sweet. I always appreciate seeing marriages like yours that clearly are solid, and the two of you are there for one another no matter what. I'm so glad you found a good man that treats you like a princess! It sounds like you had one of the best birthday weeks - all men should take a note from your hubby!
