About Marriage

“When I was younger, I wanted to be married so badly. I wanted the companionship, the family, the love. I wanted lazy Sundays in bed and long walks. I wanted gazing into each other’s eyes and secret smiles and laughter.

I wanted a movie scene.

The problem is that movie scene portrayals of relationships are NOT REAL. Who knew?

My husband and I got married when we were both 23, a retrospectively young age to commit to be with another person for the rest of your life. We had an amazing dream wedding, an equally magnificent honeymoon, and then we returned home for real life.

We were terrible at it…..”

Today, I am sharing some tough stuff about my marriage and letting you in on a little secret….marriage is HARD WORK.

I am honored to have a guest post on Kludgy Mom sharing a post: My Marriage Is Not My Masterpiece…And Why That’s OK. 

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts. Click here to read the rest of the post. I can’t wait to read your comments with your own marriage experiences.

See you there! xo

Project Marriage

Through luck (and Twitter) I discovered an inspirational website called Project Marriage.

Three women have joined together to create this site with the goal of helping others put some “oomph” back into their relationships.

They have even designed a section of weekly marriage challenges to help you re-discover why you said those vows in the first place.

I adore this website and the opportunity it gives for interaction and support.

That’s why I am truly honored to be guest posting there today, and sharing just a bit of my marriage story.

Ironically, my guest post falls at a time when my own marriage could use a bit of re-inventing.

Despite the trials of marriage and the way it tends to get lost under the monotony of daily life, I love the message of this website and the way it encourages us to focus on our own relationship stories.

After all, with out our story, there could not be his.

Come join me as I share a glimpse into my marriage, and then browse the site! You may find some take away advice and a little bit of spice for your evening. :)

See you there!
