Setiap prosesi pernikahan menjadi pengingat komitmen pernikahan kami lagi. Seperti juga setiap perziarahan, menjadi pengingat kefanaan. Teriring doa untuk mempelai, keep learning & never give up on each other, have a meaningful journey. ♡♡♡ #learningcouple#marriageisajourney
We took this picture when we were at this fun playground called Fairytale Land in Sacramento traveling "the crooked mile". It was literally a long twisty turning road about 2 feet off the ground and no wider than 12" at some points. It reminded me of life how there is twists and turns and all these unexpecteds but when you have good people on the journey with you it's not so bad. Marriage is rediculously hard sometimes. Fight for it. Both of you. You are on the same team! Nathan and I have had some rough times and have had to breathe through discussions reminding ourselves that we are on the SAME freaking team! Two secrets to a happy marriage in my opinion? 1>Work on your own emotional junk. Your spouse isn't going to fulfill you, they can't love you enough to satisfy, if you don't love yourself. Rough times? Work on YOU. You can only control your own self. 2> Invest in your marriage. Make room/time for your spouse. Date nights, snuggles after kids go to bed, talking about the day to day, encouraging each other, etc. Never stop pouring into your spouse-they are a gift not to be taken advantage of. We had an incredible date night tonight simply watching a movie and chatting over a glass of wine and orange chicken from Trader Joe's. It's not about the $ spent it's about the heart investment. If you're going through a rough spot in your marriage lemme say this- He's worth the hard. YOU'RE worth the hard friend. Push through, greater things are coming. #marriagetips#crookedmile#marriageisajourney#worthit
We celebrated 15 years of #love and #marriage yesterday! 🎉 It’s been a great ride – some paths smoother than others, some miles longer than others, some journeys spontaneous and pleasantly surprising…some routes took us in circles…made a few detours, but slowing down only helped us to accelerate…and three energetic riders have joined us along the way to keep us moving! We’re still happily pushing forward, and I think some of our best destinations are yet to come. ☺️ #marriageisajourney#staythecourse Swipe to see a few details from our #wedding celebration. Fun fact: We had two ceremonies – first time was an intimate ceremony with only our parents in NY and second time was a celebration with friends and family in Atlanta!
The ying to my yang. All that know us definitely know this to be true. We have so many qualities that compliment one another and a few that we share. It’s definitely the reason I feel he was placed in my path back in middle school. We celebrate each others victories, feel each others defeats and most importantly bring each other back to our place of gratitude. Gratitude for the life we share, our family, our friends and all the experiences yet to come. No matter what we always come back stronger together. #teammasters
Waking up this morning with gratitude 🙏🏻 , starting with this guy. He has a gift of helping me to step back and see things in a different light. This has changed how I react to things and helped me to move forward. It’s a better way to be present and enjoy the journey.
Last Sunday was my wedding anniversary. I’ve lived with my husband more than half my life. We’ve grown up together, working our way through grad school, parenting our four kids, starting businesses, moving abroad to Spain a few years back for a family sabbatical. Sometimes we’ve seen eye to eye on things, but we’ve also locked horns, PLENTY. Because the thing is, we couldn’t be more different. He’s a process analyst, a numbers man, a serial entrepreneur, practical and literal to the core. I’m a process bungler, a word lover, a serial creative, spontaneous and metaphorical to the point of occasional dysfunction. He’s way conservative. I’m way not. But here are three things we’ve learned to do that have added value to our long marriage. . One. Fight right. When we lock horns, we now have a practice of trying to identify with each other's perspective. Then we attempt—sometimes haltingly—to put that into words. Striving to imagine how your partner might feel is a choice, and putting that into words is a powerful lever for awakening compassion and empathy. . Two. Collaborate right. Knowing how different we are, we try to intersect around common interests: food, travel, business. For example, we can set out a charcuterie board with meats and cheeses and breads and three different oil-and-vinegar combos, and suddenly all is right with the world. . Three. Apologize right. I stink at this. Even my kids could tell you that. I’m getting better, though. I used to think that saying I was sorry meant yielding ground and potentially getting trounced. That was false. Saying you’re sorry simply means acknowledging that—whatever your reasons—you minimized your partner, made him or her smaller. So you say, “Look, I wronged you, and I hurt you, and I’m sorry.” The end. . We still sometimes drive each other nuts. But Saturday when the battery in my car died, he bought a new one,
Pulmapaika saabudes ootan alati kohtumist sellise karbikesega. Ilma selleta oleks tegu tavalise peo ja tavalise ilusa lauakesega. Kas sõrmused on olemas? küsin mõnel laulatusele eelneva kohtumisel pruutpaariga. Tavaliselt ikka on. Karp sõrmustega, mis ootab pruutpaari, muudab kogu sündmuse tähendust. Kuigi sõrmuste koht ei ole karbis. Neid tuleb kanda. Kandes tuleb sõrmuse otstarve ja ilu tõeliselt esile. See on põnev ja aukartust äratav tunne avada laulatuse ajal see karp ning ulatada pruutpaatile (lootes, et sa neid vahepeal maha ei pilla). Ja olla selle tunnistajaks, kuidas need sõrme asetatakse. Tavaliselt ma hoian pöialt, et ikka mahuks. Suvi, palavad päevad, süda puperdab ja korraga on sõrmed suuremad kui kunagi varem… Mida rohkem abielude sõlmimise juures ninapidi olnud olen, seda müstilisemaks see kõik minu jaoks muutub. Midagi on sel päeval täiesti teistmoodi. Asi pole ju sõrmuses, vaid usalduses. Üks inimene usaldab teise kätte oma elu. See ikka hämmastab mind, et seda teeme. On eesõigus sel tähendusrikkal hetkel inimestele silma vaadata ja oma parim kaasa anda. Palju õnne, M&I! Teie ühine teekond tuleb vägev! Olete mu palvetes. #pulmad#maywedding#marriageisajourney
My #husband We fight. We love. We respect each others space. We disagree. We have our faults & not perfect.. unbelievable... i know 😂 But at the end of each day we say good night and say we love one another. Not because we have to but because we made a pact on our wedding day. To try to be loving and lift one another up. We are not like this everyday as we both have lives away from one another & this is respect. Respect that we are individuals and choose to be together every day. Wishing you all a kind and loving day. #husbandandwifegoals#husbandandwife#marriageisajourney#lifewithadrivenhusband#supportoneanother
