Day 2649 – What Is Real Love?

Bret and I were having a conversation about what real love is.

Is it about loving someone no matter what they do?
Is it praising them?
Is it giving gifts?

We think real love is telling the truth. Especially when you’re talking about “spouse love.”

I am so grateful for this love from Bret.

If he didn’t tell me the truth about my diet and point out ways I could change – I would still be drinking several cans of soda, eating hot dogs and cup of noodles every day.
If Bret didn’t tell me the truth about working out – I would still be unhealthy – heh heh, this is one area Bret has to tell me the truth a lot. :/
If Bret didn’t tell me the truth about getting social interaction – I would be a complete hermit who doesn’t shower, reads a ton of books and binges on Lost episodes.

What do you think? What is real love?

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
