If you don't like lovey dovey you won't like this!
For example: It was right after we got Lucy and she was being loud at night and neither of us were getting much sleep. I got home before Devin one day and I was getting dinner ready. I had a really bad head ache so I put dinner in the oven and went up to our loft to rest. Devin came home and he had brought me a PINK snap dragon plant :-) (For some reason I like snap dragon plants because they are fun! I don't remember telling Devin that I liked these but he remembered!) He saw that I wasn't feeling well so he told me to take a nap and that he would finish dinner. Its the little things like that that show me that he loves me and that make me fall even more in love with him all the time. He didn't have to remember that I like snap dragons and he didn't have to finish dinner or let me take a nap but he did!
There is a quote that I had posted on our fridge that we got in Sunday school that I adore and it explains my sweet husband's attitude toward our marriage completely!
"In the enriching of marriage the big things are the little things. It is a constant appreciation for each other and a thoughtful demonstration of gratitude. It is the encouraging and the helping of each other to grow. Marriage is a joint quest for the good, the beautiful, and the devine." -Elder James E. Faust
I can honestly say that I love Devin more and more everyday that we are together! I am so grateful for him and all he does. I am so thankful for our marriage and for the blessing it has been to me.
I couldn't imagine my life being any other way. Yes Devin and I have our bumps in the road like everyone else but it is the want that keeps us going. We want our marriage to last and we are willing to put in the work to make it so. I hope to be as good a wife to Devin as he is a husband to me. He is my best friend and I love him and only him for forever!
