Love never fails

 We had a very low key Valentine's Day! We went around and visited the Grandparent's and took them their Valentine's Day crafts. 

Jared and I went to the Big Night Out at our church for our Valentine's date. It was so much fun and I so needed to get out for some adult time! They had it all fixed up and I think 200 people were there! I was excited about going out and then yesterday I got lazy and wanted to stay at home in my lounge clothes! I can be such a home-body! 

I'm so glad I went and we got to hang out with some great people!
We sat with our friends Brent and Ashlee...

Mindi and Chad..

Carin and Chris...

We had prime rib {which was SO good}, they had music, speakers, and then our pastor spoke. We also took a T/F quiz about our spouse which was interesting to see what Jared "thinks" he knows about me!

It's so hard this day in time to focus on your spouse and make them your top priority, especially with kids in the mix! That's something that we need to work on in our marriage, taking time out just for the two of us, even if it's just sitting up and talking about our day to each other. We are bad about letting the computer, TV, and other things distract us from spending time together after our kids are in bed. Especially with Jared searching for jobs any chance he gets. We rarely ever go out just the two of us with out the kids. We didn't get each other anything for Valentine's Day and we are both very ok with that. We don't need to give gifts to show our love to each other {not that I think it's a bad thing}. I would rather have his help cleaning or helping with the kids! We see divorce all around us and it's so scary to see how common it is. I love to see older couples that have been married for so long, like my Grandparents {married 64 years} inspiring!  I can't say we have the perfect marriage, but we do love each other dearly and we are going to focus more on making our marriage a priority!

“Love suffers long, and is kind; love does not envy; love does not promote itself, is not puffed up, does not behave badly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails”    {1Corinthians 13:4-8} 


  1. love that scripture, it was read at our wedding!

  2. i love the most eligible bachelor shirt ha! Total cuteness your littles :) Yay you had an awesome date night at your church! Prime Rib yummo! Sometimes girl we all get wrapped up with TiVo, computer, books lol G and I try every night to turn off all electronics when K goes to bed and talk about our day, even if it is for 15 minutes ha then we watch tv computer etc. it really is nice! We didn't exchange gifts to us this year cause we are going to NYC this fall so we are saving for that! We did splurge on miss K she had a ball! Love that scripture too!
