I met my husband when we were in grade 7, but we didn’t start dating until we were 16 and have been together ever since.  We have been married for almost 11 years and have three wonderful children.  I remember our wedding day as if it were yesterday.  It was one of the happiest days of my life.

There are so many lessons that you learn about each other and marriage in general the longer you are married.  One lesson that I feel is so very important especially with 3 young children, is to make time for each other.  It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day “stuff” and forget about what it was like before the little people took over.  It is so very important that you remember what brought you together in the first place.  I love the time after the children are in bed and we can snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie.  We can talk about the day, or just enjoy the quiet time together.  Another lesson I have learned is the importance of communication.  You need to talk about everything, and be supportive of one another.  We have had our share of ups and downs but the communication has been the key to keeping us together.  I have loved every minute we have been married and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us together!
