5 Year Anniversary

This week, I was blessed to celebrate my fifth anniversary with my fabulous fiance!  I could not have found a more wonderful man to spend my life with, and I am sincerely grateful that we have been able to grow together as a couple and as individuals throughout the past five years.

Since five years is a pretty significant milestone, I wanted to surprise my fiance with a gift that symbolizes both how extremely proud of him I am and my committment to him.  Last year, he surprised me with an engagement ring, and I haven’t been able to really spoil him yet, so I wanted to take this opportunity to do so!

When I saw this particular Movado watch, I knew it was perfect!  Since we are both in law school, I thought the ESQ was particularly fitting 🙂

 

I am hoping that this watch will be something that he can keep for a long time.  I wanted him to have something nice that symbolizes how proud ,of him I am.  I have been so impressed with the man he has become, especially within the last year as we have been engaged. going to law school, and living together.  I know that he is making his way into the professional world and wanted to give him something that belongs there with him!  Movado is an iconic and traditional brand of watch, and the ESQ line adds a little modernity to the designs.  I hope that he likes this watch as much as I do, though it seems he does so far!

 

I just wanted to share my excitement over this milestone and this gift with you all!  In case you’re wondering what he got me, I’m pleased to say that it came in a “little blue box!”  It’s so pretty, and I love it!

Four Year Anniversary

Today marks not just free slurpee day (haha, 7/11 is so clever!), but my fiance’s and my four year anniversary! I am so thankful to have spent the last four years with such a wonderful man who makes me a better, happier person.

In light of this, I wanted to share a Bible verse that has always meant quite a lot to me and captures the spirit of love.  Hope you enjoy!

1 Corinthians 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.   And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.   If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.   It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.   Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends.   As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.   For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.   When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.   When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face.   Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
