Learning to fight better, accept more, appreciate daily and stay in love with my husband

About Me

I met my “hubby to be” in the 7th grade.  We hit it off immediately and were best friends until we entered the 10th grade.  It all changed that year for us.  We went from, nearly, inseparable friends, to boyfriend and girlfriend.  From the moment we kissed, we knew we were in it for the long haul.  We were voted “Most Likely To Get Married” for our Yearbook during our Senior Year in high school. Twenty four years and two kids later and here we are.

But, as sweet as our story is, believe me when I say “marriage is hard.”  Anyone who says otherwise is either not married or in denial.  The great thing about it though is that the payoff is extraordinary.

I am a very lucky woman who has a husband who wants to make our marriage a priority, just as I do.  Over the past couple of years, we have put in a tremendous amount of energy into making our marriage what we want it to be.  It is constant upkeep, and the moment we slack off it shows.

Through these years of making improvements, I have learned a lot about marriage.  I have discovered key things that have transformed our marriage to be one that I am extremely proud of and I believe that what I have learned, through my own experiences, might be able to help others do the same in their own marriage.

From “Most likely to get married,” to “happily ever after,” I will share with you insight into my marriage and what keeps it successful as I continue to learn how to fight better, accept more, appreciate daily and stay “in love” with my husband.

  1. I agree, marriage takes constant effort. It is easy (kids, moves, jobs, losses, bills, etc.) to get off track and it can be an uphill climb to get things back on track. My husband and I have shared it all over 25 years together and there is still no one else I would rather share this journey with.

    Spent part of my day surfing your blog and it was time well spent! You share great reminders/advice and terrific enthusiasm! I am going to enjoy following your journey–and enhancing my marriage!

    • Congratulations on 25 years. I am sure there is much I can learn from you and your wealth of experience.

      I really appreciate you taking the time to read my posts. It means so much to know that, not only, did someone enjoy reading them, but could take something away from them as well! Thank you!
