Marriage: 10 Things I Love About My Husband


Its a rainy Sunday afternoon, and normally my husband and I would be getting back from church and grocery shopping. But today, we are both sick and stayed home. Jon is working on homework, as he has a busy week of school ahead of him, and I am watching Despicable Me 2, while working on blogging and Usborne Books & More. Even though Jon and I are working on different things, I can’t help but love being around him and feeling thankful that I found him. So welcome to mushy gushy time. Here are 10 (out of millions) things that I love about my husband.

  1. He is tall, dark, and handsome.
  2. He is so silly and makes me laugh.
  3. He loves Jesus and makes great efforts to encourage me in my walk with the Lord.
  4. He is a hard worker. This shows up in so many different areas of his life.
  5. He is adventurous. Most of the travel and adventures that I share on my blog, happened because Jon got me out of the house.
  6. He is sacrificial and loving. Jon has shown me his unconditional love for me by taking care of me, even when it means giving up something he loves or doing something that he does not like.
  7. He is up for anything. He loves trying new things and is not afraid of looking cheesy or silly. He just wants to enjoy life.
  8. He is willing to work through hard times. Our first year of marriage was wonderful, but hard. All the change and new responsibilities were hard on me, and he was there every step of the way to help me through it.
  9. He is athletic. Although he is busy with school and has a bad knee, he is still an amazing basketball player. He loves to hike, exercise, and get outdoors.
  10. He is honest. I never have to question what he is saying (unless it is a joke or a harmless trick). I know that what he says is the whole truth, and that truly is priceless in a relationship.

About The Blogger: That’s Me!

Learn This Life


As I was thinking about my long list of topics that I want to blog about, nothing jumped out at me this morning. I then remembered browsing through a different blog, Ordinary Adventures, and how I enjoyed reading a little bit about who was writing all of those fun blog posts. So here I will share some random things about myself so you can get to know the blogger of Learn This Life a little better.

  1. The number one most important thing in my life is my faith. I am a sinner, like all of us on this earth, that deserves eternal death. But God, in His mercy and love, saved me. I am a born-again believer and don’t deserve Jesus’ forgiveness, but am so thankful to have received it.
  2. I am married to my best friend! His name is Jonathan Grisanti. He is 6’3″ and very handsome. We are super silly together and have a blast doing nothing together.
  3. I have an awesome family. I have three older brothers and a younger sister. I now have a sister-in-law, a nephew, a niece or nephew on the way, and a soon-to-be sister-in-law. On top of that, after marrying Jon, I now have five more brothers and two more sisters and a soon-to-be sister-in-law-law? Not sure how to phrase that, but she is awesome! Also, all my cousins and grandparents live in the same area that I grew up in. We now live in AZ, but CA is where all of our family is.
  4. I am creative, but untalented. I love all the DIY crafts on Pinterest, but don’t quite have the eye or patience for detail. So when I do get around to doing a craft, it often turns out mediocre, although the process was fun. This is why blogging has turned out to be a wonderful creative outlet! I can express myself, but it is digital, so I am not relying on my unsteady hand for perfection.
  5. I majored in Biblical Counseling at a very small Christian college (which is where I met my husband). I am very interested in pursuing this more, once my husband is done with school.
  6. I am also very passionate about adoption and everything surrounding it. I have discovered this passion through my parents, as my younger sister is adopted, we have done foster care, worked with orphans, and many other things relating to that. I have been so encouraged to see ways that people can help with adoption, without adopting themselves. I do think that more people should adopt, but understand that not everyone can. But I love how everyone can jump in and serve in so many different ways related to adoption.
  7. I just got a new job! Although I have a lot of experience in the Real Estate and Property Management world, (we have a family business in this and I have been working at a company that does both of these for a little over a year now), it is not my passion. I am now going to work as the administrative assistant and the pastors’ assistant at my church!
  8. I also just started as an Independent Consultant for Usborne Books and More! I have only been doing it for about a week, and am continually becoming more and more obsessed. They have an amazing selection of books, ranging from books for infants to young adult. Also, I am hoping that this will be a fun and flexible way to make some extra income and get free gifts for people in my life.
  9. My favorite color is purple…there are a few shades I do not like, but if you think lavender, you are right on track.
  10. I love to read! I don’t read all the time, but really enjoy when I find a good book or series. I have quite a few on my list right now, but my new love for blogging has slowed me down. Check out some books I love on my Pinterest on this board and this board!

I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about the blogger!
