love alone is worth the fight

I've know this guy for 17 years, been married for 12 and boy have we been on a journey! We've been through some tough stuff but through it all we have fought hard for love, for dreams, for family. A couple months ago, Andy surprised me with a pretty little ring and a proposal to renew our wedding vows. We picked November 11th as the day we would have a family ceremony. In the meantime, life got busy, challenges came our way and while we could have put off the plans to renew our vows until things calmed down, it felt really important- for our relationship, for our family, for hope, for love. So last week on November 11th, we stood at our favorite beach and renewed our promises to each other. Andy spoke from the heart, I spoke from heart while crying my eyes out and Lucy jumped for joy...it was one of the most perfect 15 minutes of my life.

Beautiful! Love that song by switch foot too. My husband and I have been married 13 years and were just talking about how much has happened in those 13 years. Great times and really, really tough times. You are so right: Love alone is worth the fight!

I am so grateful for you and your family, and how you share little looks into your life. As for your favorite day--Just know, little Miss Lucy will never forget when her Daddy loved on her Momma, and made for a special celebration of their love for one another. She will never settle for anything less. You are giving her a precious, more valuable than gold and rubies sort of legacy.
