Tonight we took the fam on a impromptu dinner out. It wasn’t in the plan. But, my car broke down on an errand at dinner time. Since hubby had to come help me anyway, we made a meal out of it. I’d like to say that we had deep, meaningful conversation over our rice bowls, […]

It is possible to host a beautiful wedding without spending a million dollars. Here’s how we did it on a “smaller” budget. Eighteen years ago this weekend we got hitched after only four months’ engagement. Yes, it was short. We had dated for two years, though, and once you find the person that you want […]

Today is my husband’s birthday. We got engaged on this day eighteen years ago. Look! I think we were teenagers!* I find it amazing that my skin once looked so good. Thankfully, I’ve had much better hair days…. and hair decades since then, though. January 29, 1994 was a Saturday. Unbeknownst to me “Fish” had […]

I am not one to say that I have the perfect marriage. I am not a perfect wife. And hubs, well, he’s not perfect, either. Recently I read through an old journal that reflected a very tough year. Whew. Humbling. There are seasons of spring where everything’s roses. And there are seasons of winter when things […]

Last month we talked about how easy it is to give mom a bottle of perfume instead of an act of service. Service costs us something more than money. And it’s difficult. The same kind of thing applies to celebrating our husbands on Father’s Day. True, the “holiday” is about children acknowledging their fathers, but […]

I am no expert on marriage. But, thankfully, I’ve spent the last 16 years married to Mr. Right-for-Me. It hasn’t been all fun and games. There have been rough times. We’ve been hacking a life together in the jungle. But, whoever wrote those traditional marriage vows knew what he was saying: for richer, for poorer, in […]
