Living Our Vows...It's Coming!

The idea of starting a series entitled: Living Our Vows 
was realized because as a newlywed married woman,
 i am realizing the importance of living my wedding vows on a daily basis.  
When we said the following vows to each other...
they were more than words...
they were active words...

I Mrs. Pancakes take you Mr. Pancakes to be my wedded husband.
To have and to hold,
from this day forward, 
for better, for worse, 
for richer, for poorer, 
in sickness or in health,
to love and to cherish
'till death do us part. 

After we said our vows...our pastor clasped our hands together and prayed.
To me that solidified the coming together of two individuals into one.

To Team Pancakes, our wedding vows is the foundation in which we stand united in marriage.  
After our faith in God, our vows bind us in everything we do. 

I remember becoming very emotional during the reciting of our vows
 because i believed with every fiber in my being the words in which i was saying.  
I knew when i was saying in sickness & in health...
they were words that were real to me because we were living it.  
Whenever we have disagreements, i don't have to worry 
because we are in this marriage for better or for worse.  
When we worry about the amout of money we have  in our savings account, 
we remember for richer or poorer, 
we will make it work 'til death do us apart!

 In our day to day, we may forget how we are living our vows. 
 Therefore,  i wanted to reflect on what it means to live our vows.  
And in reflecting on this, i wanted to learn from other couples,
 who have been married longer than my seven they are making their marriages work.   
We will hear from couples who have been married 2 years, 5 years, 10 years and 30 years.  
There is so much to learn from these couples
 and I cannot wait to share with you all some wonderful
 expressions of love, committment, friendship and marriage.  
I am excited to take this journey to see how other couples (blogger buddies)
 are making marriages work everyday by living their vows.  

There are so many negative images out in the media 
and i wanted to counteract these images with positive ones of couples like you and myself.
It's all about making good marriages better!
 I hope more than anything this series will allow us to learn from one another and celebrate love!

As part of series...i will be featuring each blogger who participates as the Couple of the Week!

The series is coming Tuesday!

if you would like to participate in the series...
please send me an email.
thank you!

What a great series! Being married is hardwork, but so rewarding if you work as a team! My husband and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary in August and we have been together for 16 years. As every couple has disagreements, we always end up working things out because of our vows we took when we got married! Nice post :)

unfortunately for my family, everyone has been married at least 3 times. i think that's one reason i never have, bc i just refuse to get divorced! marriage means so much to me.

Yasss!! This is so needed. People are always saying the bad things about marriage. While those of us who are in healthy happy ones fail to speak up. I am excited for this.
