So I've been thinking about this lately, which probably sounds weird but whatever.... on my grown up Christmas list I want a happy marriage.
I've seen great examples of a happy marriage, but I feel like it's getting harder and harder to find. People are more content to just hang out now, and it seems like the old ideal courtship has become lost. Sometimes I lose faith that there is such thing as true love, but then I take a step back and see it all around me. Many of my friends think I'm an idiot to believe in love, but I do. I believe in love. I know there is someone out there for me, and together we'll have our very own fairy tale. Now don't get me wrong I know that no marriage is perfect. Every person is different and there will be arguments and things to work out along the way. I also know that there is a way to make it work, that marriage is about compromise.
I guess as jumbled as my thoughts seem that I know I want to be married, I know I want my own version of a fairy tale. I just want a happy marriage.

God bless me with an eventual happy marriage
