I Love Us {Free Printable}

This month, the hubby and I will be celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary!  

I still can’t believe our wedding was TWELVE years ago!  Where did the time go?

To help celebrate, I’m sharing this free “I Love Us” printable artwork you can enjoy for yourself or give as a memorable gift!  

I Love Us {Free Printable}

But before I get to that, I’d love to share the story of how I met my husband.

How We Met

As the years go by, I’m more and more amazed at how God works things out.  The hubby and I met our sophomore year in college as we started going to the same church.  I had just given my life to Jesus and was discovering what it really means to follow Him.  

I had a HUGE crush on him but…..he didn’t exactly notice me.

Don’t feel bad–that’s how it was supposed to happen.  That was all in God’s plan.  I needed time to find my purpose and worth in Him and not a boyfriend.  I really needed time to get things right with God before jumping into a relationship.

About 6 months later, I gave up on my “little crush” thinking that wasn’t the plan for my life.  I finally got to a place where I was okay with being single, as long as I had Jesus.  

Then my “crush” finally noticed me.

God really does have a sense of humor!

I Love Us

I’m grateful God brought me the right person at the right time that I can laugh and grow old with.  God paired us together to balance each other out.  When I’m feeling quiet and reserved he helps me come out of my shell.  When he’s anxious about something I help him calm down and see the big picture.

Did I mention he’s an awesome cook?  He’s a much better cook than me.  Seriously.  A good percentage of all the recipes on this blog are his creations.  

He’s also a DIY blogger’s dream.  He does 99.9% of the hard work for our DIY projects.  

When we’re out together in public, sometimes he’ll do silly things just to make me laugh.

Those are just a couple of the reasons why I love us.  

This is the perfect wedding or anniversary gift! I Love Us {Free Printable}

    Did you also make the friends for life quote? Your bedroom is really pretty. My family room has been that color for 12 year and I never get sick of it! I just change accent colors in throw pillows and throws.

    • Yes I did make the friends for life sign as well. I’ll have to share that printable sometime soon! I love the idea of keeping the wall color and switching out the accent colors on pillows–I may have to try that when I’m ready for a change. Thanks for the idea!

      • Jean Kronzer says:

        I use reds and tans in fall and winter and greens, blues, even orange in warm weather and in July go all red white and blue. All my frames are black in the room and furniture is tan…it works great!! I’m thinking about sewing seasonal drapes soon too.

        btw, I printed out the print. Thank you so much!!!! I have a blank wall right by our bed that needs a dose of your creativity! Love your blog! Keep up the good work!

        • Thank you so much for the encouragement Jean! It really is a blessing to be able to share fun projects like this that inspire other people!
