Not a Bed of Roses

This is a tribute to the relationship my hubby and I have. We're currently on our 12th year and things aren't always smooth sailing. Nevertheless, we continue to strive to work on our "partnership," especially now that we are no longer just a couple, but a family.

I used all DCWV papers of different colored roses, from red, to yellow to black and white. For the photos, I used different Foto-Me shots we had every year on our anniversary. It showed the physical changes we went through all these years.

Journal reads: Twelve years ago, we became husband and wife. We enjoyed the time we spent together, discovering new things about each other, coming together to plan our home and our lives. Still, life was never a bed of roses. We had our ups and downs. In those times when we argued about little things, we often lost sight of what was really important. Each day continues to be a struggle to keep the relationship alive and strong. Each day, we see each other’s faults, as well as each other’s strengths. Each day, we commit ourselves to remembering vows we made to each other a long time ago. At the end of the day, we sleep in the bed we make everyday, never one made of roses.
