  • Marriage is Beyond Beautiful!


    Marriage is Beyond Beautiful! I follow the page and it brings a smile to my face every time I see a post about marriage and how God makes love such a beautiful thing.

I met my wonderful husband in high school, dated for 4 years and married him under God on August 16th in front of all of our friends and family! He is in the military and it's the hardest thing we've both had to endure.
