It has been such a busy couple of days. I’ve tried to make some time to write a little bit but it just wasn’t happening. With the holidays right around the corner, I’ve been getting slammed with wreath orders (Yay for extra money!), but its taken a lot of my time. Then Amarillo was hit with a minor snow storm on Saturday. I’m not going to lie though, I really loved the snow.
Despite the snow outside, I did everything BUT have a snow day! During the day I finished up the wreaths and my husband and I cleaned our house that had been slightly neglected for a couple of days. Oops!
That afternoon we had our monthly Bluprint Marriages gathering. Bluprint Marriages has been going on for about a year and it has absolutely blessed our marriage. It is organized by our sweet friends Stephanie and Anthony. This month my brother and sister-in-law hosted it at their beautiful new home. Saturday had to be the best BP Marriages I had ever been too. I think we all needed a pick me up before the holidays. We began with God’s word in which we studied Ephesians 5:21-33. After our study we had delicious tortilla soup that Stephanie made for us (I’m hoping she will give me the recipe soon!).
We had a newly engaged couple join us, Johan and Monica. I’m sure we all thought that BPM was going to bless them, and I’m sure it did; however, they blessed us so much more. After supper, we played a “game” that ended being so much more. The husbands were asked to rewrite their vows to their wives and we would vote on the most creative. All of our husbands did an amazing job; however, when it came time to vote it was clear that Johan had stole the show. To see how absolutely in love he is with his new fiancée was so refreshing to the rest of the marriages who had already been married a couple of years. It took us back to that time in our marriages.
