Congrats to readers AmyKay and Michelle!


I’m one of those old married people.

When people hear we’ve been married nearly 17 years (!) they are surprised–not so much that we made it that far, more that we are getting old, I think.

My hubby and 11 year old had a lot of time to talk the other day in the car. Since my hunk of man is also a great dad, he’s been reading up on how to communicate better with tweens and learned that asking questions is a great tactic.

So, that’s what he did. They talked a lot with him asking, her answering.

One of his questions: What do you think of me and mom’s marriage?

One of her answers: It’s good. (and she smiled, really big)

And then she added: But y’all kiss way too much. (said with a giggle and pride)

Which is exactly the answer old married people want to hear from their kiddos.

So, my tip: kiss often, in-front of your kids! They will act grossed-out, but deep down, they need to see it.

It helps if you’re wearing one of my favorite shirts to get you in the mood! My friends at Union28 sent me this lovely shirt last week.

I wore it to Chick Fil A. The owner came over to say hi (at this point in my life, I just have to claim the fact that I’m a like Norm on Cheers at my local chicken eatery). He commented on shirt. “That is really nice of you to wear those words on your shirt.”

It made me happy.  And my hubby might have gotten kissed that day!

    I have two Union 28 “My Husband Rocks” tees and I got my daughters the “My Dad Rocks” tees this summer. They wore them for the first time on Father’s Day. I loooooovvvvveee these shirts!

    When he was working, my husband and I had a deal – whoever got home first had to start dinner. I confess that sometimes I just drove around for a while after work hoping he’d get home first. Now he’s retired and starts dinner every night. I should feel guilty about my former behavior, but I don’t. Hmmm…..

    Love your blog and tweets. Praying for Mercy House. Prayed for you when you were in renal failure and so thankful for the positive outcome. My husband is going on 9 years with his kidney transplant. Renal failure is no joke and I’m so thankful for modern medical technology and treatments.

    Also love your hair in these pics. Longer looks great on you.

    pretty sure if my husband saw these, he’d say they were cheesy. pretty sure if he saw one on me, he would secretly love it :)

    I LOVE the new one! I have a gray shirt that I got at a conference last year and my husband loves when I wear it : )

    Mary B says

    Our kids hate it when we are affectionate! I tell them we could act much worse and at least we are loving parents :) Love this shirt!

  8. 23


    I love their shirts! I’ve gotten 2 in the past for me and my hubs! That was years ago and they’re worn out. Now I need some new ones and they have so many new great styles! I love the comments or compliments I get when I wear mine. So sweet

    I have a “My husband rocks” tee, too. I was in the Coldwater Creek store the other day and the salesgirl asked me what my shirt said. I told her. She asked me to speak up; she didn’t hear it. So I said it a little louder. She got a twinkle in her eye, and asked me to say it a little louder. So I proudly shouted it to the store that my husband rocks. She then leaned over and whispered, “I would say my husband rocks, too, if he were still alive”.

    It was such a great experience, to shout the message to the world. But the private message I got was to hold him close because I don’t know how long I’ll have him for. It’s a message and an experience I won’t soon forget.

    I think it’s nice to wear your heart on your sleeve (so to speak!). Your post, and the tshirts at Union 28, made me smile!

    I was just saying today that I wanted a “My Husband Rocks” shirt. Our 20th anniversary is coming up next Wednesday. Wouldn’t that be something cool to wear that day?

    Emily N. says

    I first heard of Union 28 through your site and have loved them ever since. I thought my hubby would feel kinda strange if I wore one, but a few weeks ago I asked him what he thought of the shirts and asked him if he would feel funny walking down the street while I wore that. His response was awesome “No way would I feel uncomfortable! I would love if you wore that. And if they have them for guys I would wear one too.” So as you can imagine, I would LOVE to win a gift certificate!!!

    I LOVE the “My husband rocks” shirts! Having JUST had our first baby two weeks ago, I find myself saying/thinking that a LOT these days…. I am so very blessed :-)

  14. 49


    I would love one of these shirts. This February will be our 30th anniversary – we met at 15 and married at 18. I don’t feel old, but I guess I kind of am! And after nearly 30 years, my husband STILL rocks!

  15. 52


    We’ve been married 18 years, and I love to hear the kids groan when we kiss, especially in public! The flowered shirt is too cute. I have been meaning to order. Thanks for the reminder.

  16. 68

    Michelle says

    My husband is the best! I went to a conference this past weekend and he stayed up almost all weekend to surprise me with a painted office. And he’s so attentive to our daughter. I hit the hubby jackpot!

    Kylee says

    I really like these shirts. Sometimes I feel that I don’t tell my husband enough how much I love and appreciate him. This would be a nice surprise to him :)

  18. 70


    I’m not yet an old married person (we’ve only been married two years), but I’d love to be able to rock this shirt, particularly on Sunday nights when I’m volunteering with the youth group that my husband works with. Also, is it socially acceptable to buy one of these and call it a gift for HIM? :)

  19. 74

    Kaylan says

    I LOVE the shirts!! Today is my husband and my 3rd anniversary. I am still learning so much about what it means to be a wife. One of the things I’ve learned (but not mastered) is how important it is for my husband to feel wanted and loved. I would love to wear this shirt to help me remember!

  20. 76

    Rebecca O says

    Thank you for the chance to win! When I was getting married to my hubby of 5 years I bought (and wore constantly) a sweatshirt that said “soon to be Mrs. O”. I’d love to continue the fun and admiration:)

  21. 77

    Megan says

    I’m so blessed to be married to such an awesome guy! I’d love one of these shirts to tell the whole world!!

  22. 80


    My daughter was hiding under the table one day and got her eyes full of a big kiss. (Thank goodness that was all.) She thought is was so funny, she told me she wrote about it in her journal.
    Love the shirts.

  23. 83


    My husband is pretty fantastic too! He’s a special ed teacher who picks up our daughter from daycare every day and stays home with her in the summers. I am VERY blessed to have him in our lives!

  24. 89


    I LOVE IT!!!! My hubby and I (married almost 14 years) sometimes struggle with affection (my fault truly) We DO have the “I love my wife” and “I love my husband” shirts….we wear on special occasions…:)
    More shirts like this could possibly make bolder statements to my man who often doesn’t realize how much I DO love him..:)
    sooo…is this comment my entry, or are there more tricks???

    Jill says

    I bought one of these for myself and another for my daughter. We were going to surprise him on father’s day, but they didn’t come on time (my fault- not there’s!). So, we wore them the next weekend and went for a walk and got ice cream. The sales person commented on the shirt and said how much she loved it- and hubby loved it too! I would love to win another to add to the collection, my daughter is about to grow out of hers!

    These shirts are incredible! I’ve been reading about them on your site and am saving up for a shirt. My husband and I are both on our 2nd marriage and it’s important to us that we take care of each other. My husband does rock and I can’t wait until I eventually get one and can share with the world, and our children, how I feel.

  27. 110

    Abby says

    This shirt is perfect reflection of my heart! I am so thankful for all the hard work and sacrifices that my husband makes so I can work part-time and love on my kids FULL-TIME!

  28. 112

    Sara K says

    Great idea! I’m finding more and more that my “words of affirmation” mean just about as much to my spouse and physical touch. We’re celebrating 13 years together this August.

  29. 113

    Tarah says

    Those shirts are so cute! My husband does rock, so it’d be perfect. Our kids cann’t read yet but we have a whole youth group full of kids that need to know not only does he rock as a youth pastor but as a hubby too!

  30. 115


    What a great idea. I’ve been thinking today about how I don’t always come across the way I intend, and wonder if I sometimes paint my husband in a way that isn’t flattering. I’ve been trying to be better at not complaining in public or private about my husband. Truth is, my husband does “rock” and I am one spoiled lady.

  31. 117


    I need to wear that shirt because my husband needs to see it. He doesn’t think he rocks as much as I think he does. This may embarrass him, but I would love to wear it!

  32. 125

    April says

    Please enter me! I’ve been trying to get my mom to gift me one of these tees for 2 years now! I’d love to have one.

  33. 128


    Very Cool shirts and giveaway! And yes, just keep kissing! Wait until they are teenagers and make comments about your “public display of affection” – it is SO funny! But good to know they are seeing a good example, too. We are coming up on 29 years!!

  34. 129


    ITA about kissing in front of my kids. Although my 12 year old isn’t crazy about it, she sees that her parents are still crazy about each other after 15 years. I would love one of those shirts since my hubby rocks too!!!

  35. 130


    I really do need to get one of these shirts because my husband does ROCK. He has been so amazing going through this whole foster care/adoption thing even though it was my dream to begin with. He’s amazing and I should let the world know!

  36. 133


    My hubster and I are celebrating 11 years together in 10 days. He certainly ROCKS and I would love to win so I can announce it everywhere I go!

  37. 136


    I love that shirt! I would love to wear it. One of my favorite shirts to wear is I love my husband based on Fireproof. I feel so good wearing it and letting others know I am happy in my marriage, with my man and with Jesus!

  38. 137

    Megan G. says

    I love the comments I get when I wear my shirt. I think it also sort of keeps me in check for being sweet to my kids and kind to everyone else when we’re out and about during the day. And makes me want to do my hair and makeup, so people aren’t thinking, “poor guy!” :)

    BUT, I’ve been hinting to my wonderful hubby that I’d love the fitted v-neck and/or the maternity shirt! I can’t wait to get one of the one with sparklies. Fun!

  39. 138


    I love these shirts!
    My hubby and I are celebrating our 22nd anniversary in exactly one month! (Sept 16th)
    I still think he rocks! Maybe even more so now that we’ve grown up together and raised 3 awesome kids!

    Julie says

    I hadn’t heard of Union 28 until I read this post and let me tell you it “rocks”. I love it!
    Thanks for the giveaway. I hope I am the lucky winner!

    Our five year old already gets embarrassed. It’s so funny. He asked us the other day why we love each other so much while covering his eyes and of course smiling. He told us to just go read a book together or something! :)
