5 Ways We’re Prioritizing Our Marriage This Spring

April 3, 2018

This post was sponsored by Zappos.

 

If I’m being totally honest Zack and I have had a difficult time prioritizing our marriage since the high of moving back home has worn off. Our schedules are tight and between caring for Owen, balancing work, Zack’s stand up comedy, friends, and alone time it’s been difficult to wedge time in for our marriage. As someone who’s love language is quality time this can be incredibly challenging and this past weekend it all came to a head. Having this realization was definitely hard, but I’m grateful, because it forced us to sit down and make some changes.

Mom and Dad Made a Podcast: The Juggle is Real

March 28, 2018

Our marriage is far from perfect. From the outside it can often appear as though we are wearing a lot of hats without too much trouble, but in the rare moments that that’s actually happening, it’s taken a tremendous amount of work to pull off. The rest of the time we’re struggling to find the balance in our days, fighting the inescapable amount of time we actually have on our hands, and putting our best foot forward to juggle it all and prioritize what our family needs. It’s far from easy and we wouldn’t ever want to give you a different impression. We certainly don’t have all or any answers, but today on Mom and Dad Made a Podcast we’re diving into how we attempt to manage our work/life balance, the best advice we can give and some more details on our trip to Miami last week! Download, listen, subscribe and leave us a rating or review if you have a moment.

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.

Together We Mother: Parenthood Changes Marriage

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.
