Living Our Vows: Katherine & Brian


Hello Adventure of Team Pancakes Friends! 
 I’m Katherine from Irish Italian Blessings 
and I am THRILLED to be a part of the "Living Our Vows" series. 
When I first saw the idea for this series I was ecstatic.
 One of the reasons I’m so drawn to Mrs. Pancakes and her lovely blog is because 
I admire her excitement and dedication to her marriage, plus she’s fun and fabulous too!
My husband and I recently celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary and we've been together for 9 years, wow! That's a long time considering I met him and fell in love with him when I was only 21. I knew when I met him that he was the man I was going to marry.

 When we got married it was so incredible because we were committing ourselves to each other in front of God and all of our family and friends but it was more than that. The day we said “I Do” we became more than husband and wife, we became a family. We exchanged vows and we promised to love and cherish one another until death do us part. We LOVE and CHERISH one another EVERY DAY.

Every day we say I love you, several times a day. Every day we kiss each other good morning, good night, hello and goodbye. Every day I wake up, I thank God for His amazing blessing of bringing me such a wonderful man. Every day I realize just how lucky I am to have him as my husband and best friend. Every Day I treasure my husband. Every Day I miss him when he’s gone. Every night when we have our time together, We tell each other just how lucky WE are and;
 how thankful WE are and how much WE love each other. It truly goes both ways.

 I can sit here and type out hundreds of thoughtful things we do; for each other. Just last night my husband told me that he knew the minute he laid eyes on me, he knew that he loved me. After nine years he’s never said that to me; and it made me feel his love and I felt closer to him than I already was. It’s so important to do those little things, take time to write those little notes,  to say those little “I Love You’s” and to constantly remind each other just how much they mean to you.
 Two months ago my father in law wrote this on his Facebook wall and I thought it was the perfect way to describe how we are "Living our Vows:"
 Katherine and Brian ~ 
and Everyone who reads this note.;
You are both tremendous individuals, taking the experiences of life and creating love.
 No living in the past, no competition, no saying why not us.
Yes to sharing, Yes to caring, Yes to giving.
 It shows in all you do.
 Truly there is no 'white space' between you.
 I honor your love, I respect your shared family values, I treasure my moments with you both.
 Here's to the Future!
 Thank you again for letting me be a part in such a special series and I look forward to reading more!


Thank you Katherine for sharing how you and hubby are living your vows.  
You guys appear to have a love that is pure magic!

Question of the Day:
How do you show your spouse love?

Beautiful! My husband shows me he loves me every day through his actions -- cooking me dinner, cleaning the litter box so I don't have to, spending his free time helping me format a difficult class presentation. While this may not seem romantic to others, it truly is to me!

Anna said...

So beautiful! :')

That was very touching and a good reminder to us all to never get so caught up with other things that you fail to appreciate each other. Many blessings to you and your family.

THE mom said...

Love this post! Her FIL is so sweet for posting that too :)

Big daddy and I used to talk about nothing all the time. But with school schedules being opposite of my work schedule we dont see each other very much these days...but a simple I love you text in the middle of the day or night is perfect.
