I was recently in Nice, France vacationing with my husband (no kids!) suffering from jet lag! I couldn’t sleep and my mind began to wander to how I’d reacted to hiccups that we had during our travels. We had parking...
“I choose you” are three very powerful words.  We choose our kids OVER and OVER all day long, but the idea behind “I choose you” can be pretty incredible when it comes to marriage.  Saying “I love you” is...
Are we roommates

Are We Roommates?

It’s when I only see my husband to sleep. It’s when our conversations are short, to the point, and revolve around the logistics of carting our kids around or what we need from the grocery store.
Neither one of us splurges or goes all out for Christmas, birthdays or Valentine's Day. We get what we need all year, so we sometimes don't exchange more than a card! If you are like me, or even if you aren't and go big, here is a practical gift that gives all year long! Any gift that can bring some positive thoughts and love to your marriage all year for under $10 is a winner to me!
During the Christmas season, I decided to shower my husband with “25 Days of I Love You's” to make him feel extra special. I did something similar for the fourteen days leading up to Valentine’s Day a few years ago (prior to having kids) so I thought I would try something similar. Even though Christmas is over, Valentine’s Day will be here soon so I thought I would share this idea. This is easily adaptable for a birthday, any holiday, or just because!
We make fun of it because it’s based on very unrealistic expectations. 25 pre-screened, gorgeous (but mostly crazy) people are all competing for a potential mate that they’ve never met. The show takes place in an elegant mansion stocked with endless amounts of booze, and features outings to exotic locations no regular people can afford. The extravagant dates feature helicopter rides, hot tub soaks with champagne, and tropical beach frolics. To put this into perspective, my husband and I met in a dive bar in college and our first date was at Starbucks. Honestly, if given the opportunity to go on the dates featured in this show, I could temporarily fall in love with a scarecrow. Not only is it unrealistic, but it sets the couple up for failure. I propose they try these 18 alternative dates. It may ruin the show, but it would be entertaining.
Before kids, my husband and I did everything together.  We went out to eat, saw concerts, stayed up late watching movies, and traveled.  I would have characterized our marriage as “easy.”  Then we had kids.  With three toddlers distracting...
My relationship with my in-laws has been and continues to be a positive experience. They are my second set of parents that I never expected. I call them Mom & Dad. Like many relationships, we don’t agree on everything and that’s ok. I respect that they may have different ideas or opinions on things than I do. Life would be boring if we all thought and acted alike.
