Navigating the Seas of Love: A February Reflection on Marriage

Hey there, lovely readers! Tessa here, and can you believe it's already February? I'm so thrilled to share some thoughts on love and marriage as Lemar and I just celebrated our 9th year together. Time truly flies when you're building a life with your best friend!

Cherishing the Journey

February, the month of love, always brings a sense of warmth and nostalgia for Lemar and me. As we reflect on our journey together, it becomes evident that marriage is not just a destination but a beautiful voyage we embark upon every single day. It's about cherishing the small moments, laughing together, and finding joy in the ordinary. Plus, it’s his birthday month. I asked him the other day what he wanted and gave him a deadline of February 5 to let me know. I personally love giving him new experiences, the problem is - he doesn’t always like what I have in mind. 😃😃

Communication: The Lifeline of Love

One thing Lemar and I have learned over the years is that communication is the heartbeat of a healthy marriage. It's not just about talking; it's about truly understanding each other. Make an effort to listen with your heart, not just your ears. Open, honest, and respectful communication can bridge any gap and strengthen the bonds of love.

Embracing Change

Life is a journey of constant change, and marriage is no exception. Lemar and I have faced our fair share of ups and downs, but what has kept us strong is our ability to adapt and grow together. Embrace the changes, big or small, and view them as opportunities for mutual support and understanding.

Date Nights: Keeping the Spark Alive

With the hustle and bustle of daily life, it's easy to let the romance take a back seat. Lemar and I make it a point to have regular date nights – an evening dedicated to just us. Whether it's a cozy dinner at home or a night out on the town, these moments are crucial for keeping the spark alive and reminding us why we fell in love in the first place.

Gratitude and Appreciation

Expressing gratitude and appreciation for each other is a simple yet powerful way to nurture your marriage. Lemar and I make it a habit to acknowledge the little things that often go unnoticed. A heartfelt thank you or a sweet gesture can go a long way in creating a positive and loving atmosphere at home. He knows the way to my heart is a good meal. I’m learning the way to his heart is by allowing him to have time to himself to recharge.

The Importance of 'Us' Time

In the midst of work, family, and other responsibilities, it's crucial to prioritize quality time together. Lemar and I make a conscious effort to carve out moments for just 'us.' Whether it's a weekend getaway or a quiet evening at home, dedicating time solely to each other strengthens our connection and rekindles the romance.

Reflecting on the Journey

As Lemar and I celebrate our 9th year of marriage, I'm filled with gratitude for the love we've built together. It's essential to pause, reflect, and celebrate the journey – the highs, the lows, and everything in between. Each year is a chapter in our love story, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us.

So, dear friends, as we navigate the seas of love this February, let's cherish the beauty of marriage, communicate with intention, and embrace the ever-evolving journey together. Happy Valentine's Month to you all!

With love,

Tessa E. Boyd
