With Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas quickly following I want to encourage you to stay connected with your spouse this upcoming Holiday season. I know it is easy to get caught up with all the shopping and get-togethers that life becomes even busier than it already is in the next few months. It is easy to skip a date night because of school Christmas plays, family and office get togethers and even turning date night into Christmas shopping for the kids, which is fine as long… Continue

When you get married, it is not only a merging of two lives but two families. With the upcoming holidays approaching have you discussed where you will spend Thanksgiving and Christmas?
It is important to discuss this ahead of time and both decide what works for your family. We have been taught to pray and ask God where to be which is important; we should desire to be in the right place at the right time no matter the occasion. What if you are supposed to spend… Continue

I mentioned before in an earlier post how I would blog about my favorite pre-marital counseling assignment. My husband and I have been married for over eleven years and this one assignment has stuck with us all this time. We frequently refer to this assignment.
Our pastor in… Continue

This post is to encourage you to avail yourself to pre-marital counseling if you are planning on getting married. If you are already married, it’s never too late to discuss topics that you haven’t discussed and to have someone help you in discussing those topics or maybe topics you have discussed but just don’t see eye to eye on, that IS when you want a third party involved to assist. If you are already married share this with someone you know who is going to get married or has a desire… Continue

This post is to encourage you married couples to only speak well of your spouse. Most people would think that is common knowledge but I am amazed at how many times I am with strangers and people I know and they speak badly of their spouse. I know there are the extreme people who are unhappily married and speak horribly of their spouse all the time; I’m not talking about them. I am talking about people who I know to have a good relationship with their spouse and yet they well say… Continue

After getting the kiddos situation in the kitchen with an art project this morning I set off for the family room to fold clothes. Exciting I know! While folding I turned on the TV and quickly found myself being pulled into a talk show. The topic was unconventional marriages. The host was interviewing a traditional Orthodox Jewish marriage. First I found it ironic that the topic was unconventional marriages and the couple was in a traditional marriage. My second thought was, when… Continue

Like most young girls, I was enthralled with romantic fairy tales. Who wouldn't want to have Prince Charming to show up with that glass slipper that would undoubtedly fit just right? Or maybe have him ride up on his noble steed and wake you from some mysterious illness with true love's kiss? These ideas of romantic bliss are drilled into little girl's heads from very early on. There's nothing wrong with fairy tales, they are entertaining and fun and they make… Continue

Last week, Lexi had an assignment which required a poster-board. Actually, it didn’t require a poster-board, notepad paper would have worked too, but it seems like the new generation of teachers prefer everything from a haiku to a spelling assignment completed on poster-board. It’s like these teachers are compensating for something else. You know what they say about a teacher who assigns over sized homework, don’t you?… Continue

Last week ended on a tense note, so Ben and I snuck out for a quick drink and a few moments alone on Saturday night. We deserved this time together. Actually, if we’re going to be fair about it, we deserved a trip to Europe but I’m grateful for anytime alone.
We didn’t go anywhere fancy. Still, I wanted to take it up a notch so I wore this necklace, which had belonged to my Granny Bea.… Continue

I am reading the book "For Women Only" by Shaunti Feldhahn it's about
the great mystery called marriage. I thought I'd share what I've learned
74 % of men would rather feel alone and unloved than feel inadequate and disrespected. In fact many men had a hard time seeing the difference because if a man feels
disrespected he is going to feel unloved!

We’ve recently introduced a new show into our TV watching repertoire called Surviving the Cut. We happened by this show somewhat unintentionally, since I had initially mistook it for some kind of reality-dance-audition-series. I’d DVR’d it, anticipating an hour of leg warmers and men in butt-tight, cutoff sweat pants rolled up into their nether regions. But instead of watching some coked-up choreographer shouting, ‘People...and five, six, seven, eight...!’ we ended up watching US… Continue

Several weeks ago, Ben and I attended a conference for web developers, even though I’m not a web developer myself. I'm a web designer, yes, but not a developer. They may sound similar but they’re not, and confusing those two roles would be like asking the hospital janitor [the one mopping your insides off the birthing room floor] whether, or not, your newborn is taking enough areola into her mouth when she latches on. Wrong man for the job, and… Continue

I wasn’t entirely sure whether or not to write this post. But then I thought, you guys are adults. You understand that life isn’t just rainbows and squirrels covered in sparkles. I can give it to you straight. And if I’m wrong, well then, I guess a few of you will probably make a mini throw-up in your mouth.
Our weekend started out with projectile vomit. And then it got gross. And no, this will not run amok into a poop post, unless you count that incident with our cat making diarrhea… Continue

I came across some of my old journals.
It was so weird looking through them. (I know I have tons more
