14 Things My Husband & I Have Learned in 4 Years of Marriage

8 Romantic Outdoor Date Ideas


8 romantic outdoor date ideas Sometimes as you get busy with work and wedding planning or life in general, the romance, dates and alone time with your love can dwindle. That’s why it is so important to always make time for each other. Easier said than done sometimes. I have to remind myself of this often as well. Being married can become a routine with romance decreasing little by little until all of a sudden you realize you haven’t had a date night in weeks. We must make it a priority to keep that lovin’ alive!

Outdoor dates are perfectly fun and romantic. It’s refreshing to get outside and disconnect from the world and technology and just be. You + him.

Happy Wives, Happy Lives

Happy Wives Club

My husband, Fawn Weaver & Me

Happy Valentine’s Day, Love!

So, as you may recall, I recently wrote a post called A Letter to My Engaged Self to share not only with you, but also for the Happy Wives Club book blog tour. Fawn Weaver, the founder of the Happy Wives Club and author of the Happy Wives Club book {which is already a New York Times Best Seller!} was recently in Dallas doing a coffee talk. My husband {yes, he came with me!} and I really enjoyed the time spent with her. Her mission was to fly all over the world, 12 countries, 6 continents to discover the secrets to a great marriage. Not the secrets of staying married, the secrets of a great marriage. There’s a definite distinction.

She shared a few of the secrets, and of course, I wanted to share two of my favorites with you. [click to continue…]

The goal of this It’s All About Love Blog Tour is to show that happy, healthy marriages are possible. Since I guide brides through exactly what they need to know to be their most beautiful {outside & in} on their wedding day plus help them lay a healthy foundation for their marriage, my hope is that writing this letter to my engaged self will help brides-to-be understand a little more of what to expect.

Although we each have our own stories and every marriage is different, I hope you find some inspiration and relatedness no matter what stage you are in, in your relationship.
