Amanda and Charl my beloved

Leading up to our wedding, the 30 days prior to us saying I do, I posted a little status update on my Facebook page everyday.

I randomly came across these notes in my phone today.

Maybe your 30 day inspiration challenge for March Inspired needs to be to find something to encourage and love about your partner.

Charl and I celebrate 3 years of marriage really soon, with a 2 year old and a soon to be newbie Viviers it is easy to forget the little things that made you fall in love.

Do you need to write a 30 day list about your loved one?

A simple note of gratitude in a journal each day of March of why you fell in love with them?

Day 30- he is kind
Day 29- he’s got book case making skills
Day 28- he likes hanging with my family
Day 27- he speaks with randoms on the train
Day 26- he notices the poor and lonely
Day 25- he opens the door when I walk in a room
Day 24- he likes coconut chocolate
