My Current Relationship

I've decided to do a little writing challenge, and the first topic is "your current relationship". If you don't already know I'm married. David and I have been together since 2005 and got married in September of 2009. 

When I first met David, his age initially scared me, he is 8 years older than me.. But that finally wore off. Age is truly only a number. But when your 19 and he's 27 it seems a little out of reach but truly it just depends on the two individuals in the relationship. 
We were married 4 years before we had a little one come in the picture, and I think it's smart to spend some time before jumping in to the parenting boat (but honestly, to each it's own- I'm not judging either way!) When I first thought about marriage and kids I wanted to be married and be done having kids by the time I was 24!  So looking back that thought process was just silly!  Just take your time and do what works!! 
David is a great guy- I love that he is a guy's guy- he's tough, works hard, can fix stuff, doesn't mind to get outside and get dirty... He loves to take his shirt off and wash his truck or mow the yard, and I love to watch him, haha-- for real tho! 

Don't get me wrong, our marriage has not all been kisses and butterflies- it can get rough, just like anyone else's. But, I'm so glad that we've stuck together and figured out the hard stuff. David is my best friend and some days I still think, it's so weird that we are married--even though we've been married for almost 7 years now- some days its just so surreal. I love being married, even through all the hard seasons, I love coming home to my husband, I love cooking and taking care of the house (even when I feel like "I don't want to clean this house one more time")being a wife and a mom. Some days I don't always remember that- but I'm working on it. Anyhow, my current relationship is that I'm taken, and I'm grateful for that!

Reading makes me feel smart! ha!

I love to read-- I have books upon books stacked in my closet, which I never re-read, so I've been trying my best to pass them along to others, to spread the enjoyment right?
Anyhow, some years I get really into reading and will easily read 5 or 6 books- other times, just one or two, it honestly just depends on my mood and how good the book is! A few months back I read a review on Sophie Hudson and it seemed like she was my kinda author! I posted a while back about "A little salty to cut the sweet", which was SO good, I literally laughed until I cried, and finished the entire book in just a few short days, its that good ya'll!!
So, I couldn't wait until I could get my hands on the next book, "Home Is Where My People Are". So I visited the ole trusty Amazon and found a used book for only $1.90!!! Score!! And let me say, I am super picky about my books, I like them in pristine condition, no bending of the pages and that sort of thing- and I knew a used book would definitely have some wear, but it was actually in pretty good shape! And for $1.90 I mean COME ON!!

I laughed, I cried, I learned a lot about Jesus- this is just an all around GREAT book. It only took me a few days to read it, its good, for real! So if your looking for a good, clean author, Sophie Hudson is a fabulous one for sure!
