It's a Twinderful Life

Looking For the Silver Lining in All of Life's Clouds

friendship in marriage.

Happy (Good) Friday everyone! It’s been a while! Just wanted to drop a line to let you know that we are still alive and kicking over here.

I wanted to share this article about why friendship, more than romance, leads to a happy marriage. Fantastic short read! Steve and I started out as friends and then became best friends before we let the romance in and I can truly say that I agree that friendship in a marriage makes everything better.

Also, Happy Easter/Passover/Spring Equinox (and whatever else you might be celebrating)! I hope that your plans for the weekend involve lots of family and relaxation. We celebrate Easter here and I am so grateful for what this holiday represents to me. 

And finally, to end this random post, a picture of the beautiful Scarlett. Her cheeks are getting more squishy everyday and I can hardly STAND it!

We hope you all have been having an awesome holiday season! We’ve been thoroughly enjoying it here and have been having way too much fun being together and eating delicious, not-in-any-way-healthy food. Let’s just say that come January we are definitely due for a major detox.

On another note, I just watched this movie again today. If you haven’t seen it you should definitely put it on your “To Do” list while it’s still on Netflix. I’ve seen this movie at least 5  times but it never gets old. And while I love the concept of “fireproofing” your marriage, I like to extend that to all of our relationships with our fellow men. We are truly blessed with the opportunity to make mistakes and go through trials and learn from them. I wouldn’t be who I am today without this precious gift.

I hope we can all try a little harder to be a little better every day and cut each other some slack because Heaven knows none of us are perfect. I, for one, and going to hug my husband and family a little harder today and tell them how much I love them. I hope you’ll join me, and that you’ll have a fantastic New Year!

Marriage Advice

Hello friends!

I came across this article today and thought it was awesome! If you’d like to hear one woman’s take on how to stay not only married, but happily married for at least 15 years, then you should definitely take a peek. I’d be shocked if it didn’t make you chuckle (or at least smile) and reevaluate what you can do to make your relationship with your significant other even better.

Have a fantastic Thursday!
