You know who Joanna and Chip Gaines are from Fixer Upper on HGTV, right?
I absolutely love that show! I love the simple and clean design they use in their house remodels. I started reading their first book, The Magnolia Story. It is hilarious reading about how Chip and Jo met and the adversaries they have been through. (especially when they had their first child, a great first time parent story) They have built a marriage and family based on love, understanding, and compromise. Core values to a long lasting relationship.
My 16 year wedding anniversary was this year and I wanted something to symbolize our long journey. But I had no idea what. Until I was reading Joanna Gaine's magazine, Magnolia Journal. I was reading through the new summer issue and there was an article in there about Greek words and using them for decorations. I thought that's it! I'm going to make a Greek love word stamped necklace that can be layered with other necklaces.
Greek love word meaning mature and understanding love that comes from years of compromise
"stand in love" or making an effort to give love rather than just receive it
