On our 30th anniversary: 30 things I love about my husband.

I’ve enjoyed talking a couple of days to skim back over the posts of each month. I wish I had done so before writing our Christmas letter — there were some things I had forgotten about! But I like how these encapsulate the different things I focus on in my blog: meditations on Scriptural truth, family, books, and fun posts.

  1. I loved reading your posts from the earlier part of the year (seeing your baby/childhood pictures!) and reading your new year’s meditations. I think I started keeping track with your blog about mid-way through the year (around the wedding) and it was fun to get to know you a little better.

    Thanks for the links and for sharing!

  2. The great thing about our blogs is that they are all interactive diaries of our lives. Generally we mention the important things (but I imagine we all tend to leave out a few important things, too.)

  3. What a great wrap up. I so remember many of these. I think the story of the wedding was one of my favorites – the flat tire. I also and I know this is recent but loved the anniversary one. Just wonderful ๐Ÿ™‚

I love hearing from you and will approve your comment ASAP.
