Black Love: What I’ve Learned From 10 Years of Marriage

I’m still on a high from celebrating my 10 year anniversary.  We enjoyed a wonderful night of wine and dining in Buckhead.  Mister is known to pull out the romantic stops and he did not disappoint. It seriously felt like our wedding night again.  I’m not gonna lie but I feel like I have a little marriage swag now that I’ve hit 10 years happily married.  I’m not saying that my marriage has been perfect all 10 years. We’ve had some bumps in the road along the way dealing with communication, family, and finances.  I’m happy to report that I am more in love with this man today than I have ever been.  With no examples of #BlackLove around me, it is by God’s grace that I’m here.  I thought I would share what I’ve learned over the years that have kept our love strong and growing.

10 Years of Marriage + How He Proposed

TEN years in this marriage game!  WOW!  The best thing about celebrating 10 years is that we’re still madly in love.  Like I would do it all over again.  Like most women, I thought that I was supposed to meet my future husband in college.  That ideal died quickly after breaking up with my freshman year college boyfriend.  After that relationship, I decided I was going to enjoy myself and play the field.  My longest relationships before Mister was only one year max.  I told myself that marriage wasn’t for me.  At 26 (still young) I said, I was going to get my grind on and be a super bachelorette.  Within a few weeks, I met Mister. You can read about it HERE.  He’s been sweeping me off my feet ever since.  Keep reading for our proposal story.

Figuring out what to feed your family every single day, three times a day, plus snacks can be stressful.  When I don’t meal plan properly I usually end up at someones drive through and stuffing my face with french fries.
