I'm not usually a fan of country music, but lately some of it has been growing on me. I still remember the first time I heard this song. It was following a really special moment with the fella and he turned it up on the radio. I found it cute but a tiny bit cheesy perhaps? However, I liked hearing it at that time and after really listening a few times since then lol definitely not so cheesy anymore. So, we both agreed recently that this will be "Our Song".

One of the biggest changes in my life this year has been this ...
It seemed to happen out of the blue, though in hindsight I really believe that God decided the time was right and I was finally ready. I'm blessed because He knew exactly what I needed and even some things I didn't even realize I wanted!! I have done more learning and growing these past few months about everything ... myself, relationships, life etc.
I have learned that perfection doesn't exist and the most important things take work. I know that movies, books, quotes etc. are just glimpses at small parts of love and definitely not the whole bigger picture. I understand that communication, communication, communication is absolute key. I see that men and women are of completely different outlooks, so sometime you have to stop and try on their perspective to understand them better. I have learned that seeking advice from those who have many, many years of experience through both the good and bad and are still working at it today is usually best; but even then you still have to take that wisdom and figure out what works for you. I know that you both have to be willing to give and take. I am learning what LOVE really is and that way too often it is pigeon-holed as just a feeling ... it is so much greater than that because it is a daily choice, action, etc.
Honestly, there are too many words required to type. I must say though it is one of the greatest adventures, and remember with every great adventure there are always both ups and downs to reach the great outcome :)
