Marriage & Mondays

Marriage is filled with a lot of Mondays. There are plenty of beautiful days, some gosh awful ones, but mostly less-than-momentous moments.

Last week we tucked away to the middle of nowhere Tennessee, to celebrate twenty-six years of Mondays! We get away as often as we can (but not nearly enough!) to remember who we were before. Before the grocery lists, family calendars, and endless chores — before the others and the extras. Time away always grounds, refreshes, and revives us.

The celebratory days may always be our favorite days, but it’s really the quiet day-to-day, the passing conversations, and the intimate moments that make up most of our lives and the whole of our marriages. It’s the mundane Mondays that set the tone for our days and our relationships.

I am profoundly grateful for time away with the hubby last week. But this week finds me thankful for the every day and finding joy in the small and simple rhythms that carry us from Monday to Monday.

Happy Monday, Friends! Now, it’s time to go pencil in our next getaway.

  1. Monday with Todd mowing the yard while I dealt with weeds in the flower beds and eating dinner on the back patio was absolutely my best type of day. So grateful for everything God has given us
