Marriage- What a powerful word!!

In today's day and time, sometimes marriage isn't taken seriously. A week from today, Levi and I will celebrate our 7 yr anniversary! But in the last 6 months or so, we have saw people our age that married around the same time as us struggle. That makes my heart hurt! And trust me, our marriage hasn't been perfect, but we have to constantly work at it. Within the last 2 years, especially since Autumn has been born, Levi and I have learned to laugh at ourselves when we argue! What a blessing to be able to look at myself and say- "Quit being so dumb!"

These past 2 years have probably been the most stressed time in our marriage, mainly from trying to adjust to 2 kids & working. Our lives are so full and jam packed! Even though we have had so much stress, I wouldn't take it away! We have learned from everything and have grown closer to each other. The other day, Levi said- we need to spend some time alone, and I totally agree. We have become so wrapped up in our kids lives, we have forgot about us. We still LOVE our girls so much and wouldn't change anything for the world, but we know that we need a break every now and then.

We always tell the girls that we love each other when we tell them that we love them, and I think that is so important. Montana is old enough, and she knows that we love each other! That is so important to me. It is amazing how God works and makes us realize what's important in life! I thank God everyday for bringing me Levi and for blessing us with our girls (even though I still want more-LOL)! Life is so precious- Enjoy it!!!

*Quick Update*
We are on our 2nd week of swimming lessons and the girls are doing so good! Autumn jumps in and goes under, and Montana is finally kicking when she swims and has gotten half way under! I promise pictures will come soon!

Yes, take some time for yourself! It makes coming back home to your kids that much more precious and rewarding!

This is a precious post, Jackie! I hope Levi gets to read it. Yall are the cutest young couple, and I admire you so much for your ability to enjoy each other even though you have two very young children. Happy early anniversary!
