So, just a few weeks ago, I went to a bridal shower given in honor of a new Fran, Ms. Jessica Orr. It was really my pleasure and delight to spend time with her while some of the women she loves gathered to celebrate her. She’s a sweet, funny, pretty, cRaZy woman who loves Jesus, likes to be called Jecca, and who cannot wait to marry this dear man she’s fallen in love with, Mr. Colton Janes.
There she is, kissing some other man . . . :0)
We sat talking and laughing, like ladies do at bridal showers, and she told me that she’d been on the blog. She said that she really enjoyed the marriage letters and that she and her husband-to-be wanted to try and write marriage letters to each other once married. :0) So sweet, I thought to myself, and I was really encouraged that she felt so inspired by the letters.
Many of my Frans and readers have commented to me about the letters and so I thought that it would be a great idea to bring them back. Huni and I really enjoyed them and they sparked a great deal of reflection and communication between the two of us. Much of the hope that the originator, Amber Haines from therunamuck.com, hoped for the letters have come to pass in our marriage and others who’ve read the letters posted here.
Next Monday is our anniversary and, I felt, a great time to bring them back. So, there it is! The Marriage Letters are coming back! Talking with my Fran, Rey, this weekend I got some good ideas about some topics to start me off, but I’d love to hear from any of you as well about some topics for the marriage letters. Please leave your ideas in the comments. For those of you who prefer, you can email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information on the marriage letters series, where it came from and why I joined and am excited to do it again, check out www.therunamuck.com, which is where I first got the idea and linked up every Monday in April, and also check the category titled “marriage letters” here on pamelluce for the letters previously written.
