  • To my Husband, Before we Become a Family of Four

    To my Husband, Before we Become a Family of Four

    Late pregnancy is no picnic. For the most part, I’ve been fairly active and healthy this pregnancy. I’ve been fortunate to not have complications and to be able to go about my normal life and routines. That doesn’t mean it’s been easy, and it’s been a challenge for our family, and my husband especially, as well as myself. So, to my husband, before we become a family of four… I want to start by saying thank you. I know this pregnancy has been a challenge for you as well as me. I want you to know that you’ve been amazing…

    Five Years

    Five Years

    Five years. Today my husband and I celebrate five years of marriage. The other day we were talking about how five years of marriage seems like such a big number, such a milestone. There’s something a bit more substantial to it, saying you’ve been married for five years. I would say it’s gone by in a flash, but the truth is, it hasn’t. I’ve enjoyed every single one of these five years. Like the first year where we were learning to live with one another and all our quirky habits. Where we adopted the rule of I cook, he cleans…

    35 Years

    35 Years

    35 years ago today, my parents woke up on their wedding day. They headed to the temple and got married in a Jewish ceremony much like my own. They didn’t know what was headed their way, but they knew they loved each other. They’ve gone through a lot in those 35 years. They had a few years of marriage, then I came along. They moved to Virginia, leaving everything they knew in New York. They lost their parents, made new friends, made a new home. My three sisters came along. They’ve changed jobs, hairstyles, and changed as people. But through it…

    Do You Watch TV with your Spouse?

    Do You Watch TV with your Spouse?

    So, Chris is taking over the blog today. I always love when he writes stuff to share with you guys because you get a glimpse into the man I married and a little bit different take on our lives. So…here’s my husband. When I was younger one of my favorite television shows to watch was Married With Children. It was crude and hysterical and my favorite image was Al Bundy watching television with his hands in his pants. Its something I strived for now that I’m an adult and a husband. The side effect, of course, is that Jess wants…

    Keeping Your Marriage Strong After Baby

    Keeping Your Marriage Strong After Baby

    Happy Tuesday!  A few weeks back I did a guest post on Simply Clarke, and I wanted to share it with you today.  It’s so hard to keep your marriage a priority once a baby joins your family, and Chris and I have really had to work hard at it. Both Chris and I  feel it’s important to have a strong marriage, and have learned a lot in the past year or so about making sure we make each other feel important, needed, and loved.  I really want Abbie to see positive role models in her parents and our relationship,…

    Our Love Story

    Our Love Story

    It occured to me the other day that I don’t know that I’ve ever really told the story of how Chris and I ended up together.  Since our three year anniversary is coming up (p.s. What do you get for the leather anniversary? I already got him a wallet…), I figured it was the perfect time. Chris and I met working for the same car rental company.  He started with the company about a year after me..  The company used to send out notices with the names of all the new hires, so of course someone with the last name…
