How to Find Time for Your Marriage After Four Months of Life on the Road

September 4, 2017

Yesterday marked exactly four months since we left NYC. I made it a goal before we left to share a reflection here at the end of each month. I wasn’t really sure how they would take shape, but I wanted a way to track my honest feelings on each month away.

In Paris I dealt with a lot of self-reflection, in Berlin I grew tremendously as a mother, in Hvar I redefined home and this month in Montreal I’ve learned the true importance of showing up in my marriage each day.

As I read through each months reflections prior to this one I can’t help but feel proud. I hear a different version of myself through each piece, which proves that regardless of the harder moments, these last four months have brought such growth.

So we’ve been a little off schedule with the podcast since we’ve started our travels, but we are happy to say that we have recorded at least one podcast per city and our next episode is up!


Together We Mother: Parenthood Changes Marriage

March 23, 2017


I remember when Zack and I got engaged the first time (if you have no idea what I’m talking about read more on our story here) and after doing so friends and family asked me if I was nervous. If I thought marriage would make things would be different. I naively stated that I didn’t see how things would change – we we’re already living together, spoiler alert – we had already been having sex for years, and it seemed like we knew each other better than we knew ourselves. Well, like any other married couple can tell you, things are different after you tie the knot and like any parents can tell you, things change even more after welcoming your bundle of joy. At least they did for us.


Our Love Story

February 12, 2017


With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to take the time to share a little more about mine and Zack’s story and how we got to where we are today. It’s easy from what you find here to assume that things are perfect for us, and while they really are so great and we feel so lucky, no marriage is easy and we certainly don’t want to give the impression that we don’t struggle. Thankfully, almost eleven years into our relationship, I can say we’re stronger than ever, but it took a lot of hard work to get where we are today.
