Bling, Bling I got

I can't help breaking into a full blown smile whenever I think about the moment the sweetest man in my life got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.  That point in time will always be such a warm memory for me. Every time I look down at the beautiful ring that he placed on my finger, I can remember those feelings of love.  I really hope every one of you has equally good memories of your proposal.
One of the gifts I was given at my bridal shower...

Learn to Love

learn-to-love-yourself

When it comes to loving our husbands, we try our best. We show love in any way we can. We try to keep the house looking fabulous, we work on sprucing up our cooking skills to produce delicious dishes, we work together to help raise our children, and we even try to find the never-ending missing socks when it’s time to fold the laundry! But loving your husband is so much more than that and requires one key ingredient... that you love yourself! Many women struggle...

While a luxurious marriage retreat on a tropical island or cruise sounds lovely at any time of the year, it isn’t always a possibility for couples to get the needed escape. Vacation always brings a natural clearing of the mind and somewhat of a reset on life.

Next week, we’re bringing you 5 phenomenal speakers...

Always Say Yes

always-say-yes

Remember how in the beginning of your relationship, you would do anything for the other person?
My husband and I noticed that after awhile, couples started fighting over "who's turn it was"... to take out the trash, change the baby's diaper, do the dishes, etc. We made a deal to stop doing that! We decided that we would always say, "Yes," to each other when asked for help or support.

Now we are not perfect, and have to restart the habit now and then, but we are...

The Anatomy of an

the-anatomy-of-an-argument

Imagine the following scenario:
You are a one woman wonder that has cleaned the house, folded laundry, and managed to whip up a healthy dinner for your family, all the while taking care of your children ages 3, 5, and 8.  After dinner, your husband sits down to unwind by watching the latest Sports Center.  You are absolutely exhausted and running through a mental list of what still needs to get done that night: a sink full of dirty dishes, walks for the dogs,...

Marriage vs Finances: Love or War

marriage-vs-finances-love-or-war

Everyone has one of these growing in their backyard right???

And just like my tree, I am sure yours ONLY grows $20, $50, and $100 bills right??
{Don't we ALL wish!}
Sometimes it feels like that would be the answer to a lot of our problems. If we only had the money. Studies show that financial stress is one of the leading reasons for divorce. Couples avoid talking about money because they don't want to upset the other person, face the current financial situation...
