five months of marriage!

today is november 1st! that means 
5 months have passed since the best day ever.
i can't begin to say how much i love being married to my mr.
in honor of this, today's recipe i'm sharing is a little bit different..

recipe for marriage

use equal parts of:
  • care
  • love
  • friendship
  • passion
  • respect
blend with understanding, patience, and lots of forgiveness,

bake continuously in the oven of commitment and trust.

baste often and liberally with a sense of humor!

serve with plenty of communication in a problem-solving atmosphere {especially good when shared with loving family & friends}.

note: this is a delicious but tricky recipe that requires careful attention and the participation of both cooks.

*when it falls flat, check all ingredients and increase amounts as needed. prepare often for best results!

i'd say this is our best recipe yet!
*ps see our wedding posts here
