Love and Marriage

I feel like my marriage is really good. Curtis and I are on the same page about most issues, we have a lot of the same goals , and we just understand each other. We really get along great. But that still doesn't mean that we don't learn things about each other. So in these last few days of us packing up our lives and moving them to Alaska I have learned something new that I have added to my list of...

"Your Marriage Can Last Through Anything If..."
1. You can survive planning a wedding
2. You can survive being pregnant
and the newest
3. You can survive moving
Happy Valentines!

  1. I think moving is the hardest thing on your list!

  2. Happy Valentines Day!

    I agree about the moving part....Peter and I moved from Denmark just a couple of months before I had Emma and didn't get on each other's nerves. :-)

  5. I, too, agree: moving is HARD and if you can survive that, you can survive anything. My husband and I have so far survived two big cross-country moves in our short marriage - one of which was with a colicky newborn. After accomplishing THAT, I felt like I could do ANYTHING. Good luck with the packing -- that is, I think, the most bothersome thing about moving.

  9. I love your wedding picture, you beautiful girl, you :)

    Yeah, I think moving is truly scary...you are such a fun loving girl (at least you seem to be from the blog :) ) I know you will find a way to make it a fun adventure :D

  10. Happy Valentine's Day.

    Moving is hard especially to another state. We've done it twice now, but it can be a great adventure also. Good luck.

  13. Hi ...found you through Junie Moon's blog .... what a fun blog you have! My kids are adults now, but I rememeber the first years of mohterhood like they were yesterday. It really does goes so fast! it's nice that you can share the ups and downs this way. Moving to Alaska sounds like a big feat ... but romantic too! What a unique place to live!

  14. Well being a military family I know all about moving, we just moved to this base 8 months ago and next week we're having to pack up and move YET again to another house because they're tearing these down.

    You're right, if you can survive moving you can survive anything :)

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  15. Wow! Alaska is so exciting!

    Thanks for stopping by.

  16. moving has never been that big of a challenge for us, maybe because we move so often!!! We have it down to a science! hehe
    Alaska, I am dreaming for Alaska in our next assignment!

  17. I just wanted to say I LOVE Alaska and am so jealous that you get to live there.

    Oh, and moving definitely sucks.

  18. I agree - all three HUGE tests!!!

    Enjoy a special day!

  19. Oh, I have so many to add to your list, but I don't want to scare you =)

    Happy Valentine's day!

  20. Beautiful picture!

    You are right...moving is so stressful, although I found pregnant being even more stressful.

    Best of luck with everything - can't wait to read more about your adventures.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  21. I think you should add building a house to that:)
    Happy Valentines Day
    good luck moving!

  22. Within the last 2 years we just left the military life~ Yeah to no more moving! I am just thankful we were moving when the kids were not in school yet.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting today and best of luck with your move.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  23. i swore the next time i move, i will hire movers... i doubt that'll happen! good luck with that & hopefully it'll be over quicker than you think.

    ps - i was reading your book list and saw Maniac Magee – by Jerry Spinelli - THIS WAS MY FAVORITE BOOK as a kid. I remember reading it over and over and over.... seeing the name of the book AND the picture of the book brought me way back!

    and thanks for stopping by!

  24. Hi thanks for stopping by today! Moving would be the deal breaker for me (hopefully not). I guess because I have really never moved much but my husband has since he has been in the military for 19 years.

  25. no wait -- i lie, my favorite book was the same one as yours:

    Sideways Stories from Wayside School - by Louis Sachar. (My personal favorite)

    This was the one I read over and over again... haha

  26. congratz on a good marriage on v day!

  27. We moved countries 3 weeks after getting married. If you can survive a major move you can survive anything!

  28. Moving is a real test. The trick is to be organised in order to avoid stress!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow! I love your blog! Thanks for stopping by mine. Happy Valentine's Day!

    My husband and I vote that enduring health problems is far more trying than moving. We've moved 12 times in 15 years and I had moved 34 times before we got married--moving is a snap when you've done it that much. I don't know if I am going to live to see his back completely repaired. (He's headed for spine surgery #4)
