We Go Together {Giveaway}

UPDATE: Melissa E., comment #28, is the winner of this giveaway.

I’ve been working on a project for months in the cracks of my time.

My husband has listened patiently and pushed me gently.

And then last week, some pieces fell together and while I was helping my Kindergartner with sight words after school, I moved one step closer to my goal and that made me squeal. Literally.

She just looked at me like I was crazy.

She’s a perceptive child.

But I knew I wouldn’t be able to truly rejoice until I talked with my best friend. I called my husband at work. His response made my joy complete because he has been with me on the journey.

My husband lost his sister and one of his closest friends a month ago this week. His sorrow is great and there is a cloud of sadness that hangs heavy. It’s unchartered waters, this grief that invades every space at the most unexpected moments. It comes in waves and just when you think you can laugh again, you cry. But he isn’t grieving alone.

We don’t always agree.

We don’t always get along.

But we are one.

We go together. His grief is mine. My joy is his. It’s the sacred gift of marriage, this unexplainable, undeniable act of becoming One. It’s the most precious gift we share.

It’s what helps us thru the valleys and the mountaintops, the sheer pleasure of facing them together.

And that’s why I love Union 28‘s new Valentine’s marriage shirts.

    I love the “My Marriage Still Rocks” tote. :~)

    These shirts are great! I also have you to thank for getting the “We Go Together” song from “Grease” stuck in my head.

    I am in Australia – I will definitely have to look into getting a couple of these for me and my husband!
    My favourite shirts are the ones in this post – we have had a tough year – one of us has suffered from depression/anxiety, and we’ve battled hard together through it. Always together, in everything. We always go together. We’re ONE.

    I really, really like the new “One” shirts!! My husband and I have been reading Love and Respect and are so excited to be attending their marriage conference next week. They talk about viewing the world through pink and blue and how to come together……these shirts are a perfect reminder of that! Love them!

    I really like the t’shirts that say “I love my husband/wife” on a black t-shirt with red in the background. Their stuff all looks great! My husband and I have picked up “Love & Respect” to read together b/c of all the recommendations we’ve heard about it.

    Love the “One” shirts, but best for me as we approach 25 years is “My Marriage STILL Rocks.” Thanks for the opportunity.

    We are getting ready to celebrate 20 years of loving and forgiving in April. I adore the new shirts, and I love the My marriage still rocks. Because it does!

    They’re all great! I really love the little hoodies and pants the say “I love my husband.” Probably my favorite, though, the One with my Husband shirt. But, I like the umbrella one, too! :-) I just can’t decide!!

    Because I’m a typography nerd, I love the “My Marriage Still Rocks CharcoalHeather Tee”. But the “One” shirts are pretty cool, too! :)

    I love these new shirts!
    Wanted to get some husband-wife t’s for our anniversary {in January}, since we were going to be on a 10-hour international flight, but just couldn’t bite the bullet on the price. Winning some for V-Day would be the next best thing…maybe even better! :o)
    Thanks for the opportunity.

    My favorite t-shirt is “My Husband Rocks” crew neck. I also like the “I RESPECT My Husband” t-shirt. We’ve been married 4 years, and my husband is amazing. I tell him all the time. What better way to tell him than wear a t-shirt so that everyone will know :)

    Love the silver ONE shirts! I love the whole site! My husband has been taking care of me and our two other children for the past 8 months while I’ve experienced a rough pregnancy that has required me to be on home health care since week 7. I will def be sporting a “my husband rocks” shirt in a few more months. He did the cooking, cleaning, carpooling, grocery shopping, and meals for almost 6 months while working full time and taking care of me. He totally ROCKS! :)

    says

    My current favorite is my pink one that says “Forever his bride”. <3 What joy it was that I could put it on shortly after giving birth to our 5th child! She is so worth not being able to wear it, but I was ecstatic with joy when I could! :)

    Monica Warren says

    I love all of the shirts, but especially the “taken care of” shirt! This new one is super cute … I don’t have any yet so I hope I win! :)

  15. 49

    says

    I like “My husband takes good care of me”, because he does. But, honestly I would wear all of those featured! What a great way to promote marriage and good husbands in a culture that does not!

    Carrie says

    I love the “I RESPECT My Husband” and the umbrella T the best! What wonderful shirts!
    I’ve got a great man — want the world to know! :-)

    I really like all of their products. I have the “My husbands Angel shirt” and the “Proud Wife” hoodie. Love the new shirts too! :) The “One” shirts are a great symbol of what marriage is suppose to be about! Love the code too! Thanks for that and glad what I buy will help Mercy! :)

    My favorites are these in your post! I stood over Union28′s table at a women’s conference this fall and wanted to buy one of each… I like them all – I couldn’t figure out one (or 2 if I got my husband one) that I loved the most… We moved 1800 miles with a 7 week old baby and a 22 month old and a 3 1/2 year old in August to be closer to family after we found out my dad’s health problems were more serious than we initially anticipated. We are now living in my parent’s home with my sister and her two girls, my parents, and the 5 of us – while we search for stable jobs. WOW! I tell my husband weekly as he is applying for jobs and interviewing that no matter what I am standing beside him! We are both working random part time jobs to pay bills and save until we can get out of my parent’s basement – and even through this muck we are ONE!

    Hi there. I’ve been following you for a while, and I thought it was time I let you know I really enjoy your posts! I began following you when I was frustrated in my marriage (who doesn’t get frustrated?!) and found a pin of yours on Pinterest. Anyway, my ten year anniversary was yesterday so this post is very timely! I’m so in love!;)

    I really liked a lot of the t-shirts, hoodies, and sweat pants…I especially love the i love my husband stuff. But, my favorites are the new One tshirts!

    Thanks for being a blessing!

    My husband and I have been together 30 years and he still ROCKS. I love the hoodie that says “My Husband Rocks”!

    Heather E. says

    My favorite t-shirt right now is the recycled marriage one. I bought them for my hubby and I for Valentines. Last year we got the wife/husband rocks shirts. I sense a tradition beginning. :) Thank you for the giveaway!

    Jammie says

    I love the new shirts! The We Go Together on the back has me singing the tune from Grease…which I got my husband for Valentines day…I may need to get this shirt to go with it.

    Julie Worthing says

    I love the ” I LIKE my husband” tee – super cute :) Also love the “kiss me” unmentionable haha – those would get a reaction!
    Thanks so much for supporting and encouraging women to have strong and healthy marriages!

    Karen says

    I love all of the shirts. It’s hard to choose just one, but I guess that “One” and “Love/Respect” are my favorites.

  25. 78

    Monica Spencer says

    I love these shirts. The next one I love that I am saving to get is “My husband takes good care of me”.

  26. 79

    says

    It’s hard to pick just one, but I like the “my husband is my bff.” shirt. I also got a “My Dad Rocks” shirt for our toddler last Father’s day and love it!

  27. 90

    Becky M says

    I love the “My husband is my BFF” shirt! I’ve had so many friends that didn’t understand that my husband is my best friend.

  28. 91

    Jesilee says

    I love all the shirts! But I guess its more of a tie between “My husband rocks” and “I love my husband” with “I love my husband” barely edging ahead :)

  29. 92

    Toni Chambers says

    “I love my husband” Long sleeve black T says it all. Thank you for all you share, makes me feel normal!

  30. 96

    Jenny McDonald says

    This is tough because I like a lot of them. My favorite is the daisy vneck “He Loves Me A Lot” shirt, but I also like the pants that say “My husband rocks” (because he does!) :)

  31. 97

    Lisa says

    Isn’t marriage the best?! My husband and I are coming up on 20 years of marriage. It has been quite a journey and a wonderful adventure. My favorites are the “One” ones that you and your husband are wearing but if I have to choose just one I think that the black, long sleeved “My husband rocks” tee would be the one. Thanks for your writing, your encouragement and for this opportunity!

    A couple years ago you shared this company and I bought my husband and I shirts because of it. I love their shirts! I love the Rhinestone V Neck “My Husband Rocks”

    My husband rocks, I respect my husband, and My husband takes good care of me. All three are perfect sentiments! I am Blessed beyond anything I could have ever hoped for! He’s pretty amazing. :]

    I love the new shirt. I have a “my husband rocks” shirt I got a few years ago from union28 when my husband came home from Iraq. I am a huge fan of there stuff. I love the comments it envokes when wearing the shirt out.
