Good morning friends!
I think little Miss Frozen Ice Princess made her way over to Boston last night because I walked out to my car covered with a sheet of ice on it. So thick that not even my wind shield washer fluid could melt it away. Not fun.
Let me give you run down on New England weather:
Yesterday: snow to rain which lead to ice
Today: 55 degrees
Tomorrow: 6-14″ of snow
How does that work?!? No idea.
Anyways, two of my all-time favorite bloggers (bloggers I learned through Britt before either of us even started our blogs) They created a new Link-Up called Workin’ It Wednesdays!
If you could guess by the topics, these two ladies are living the married with multiple kids, taking care of a family lifestyle so I’m going to partake is some of these prompts that pertain to me, such as today.
Marriage Relationship Strong
I could say 100 million times that I am so grateful for Andrew and mean it every.single.time. Not all relationships are rainbows and unicorns there are some that are hard work, trying, and flat out difficult. I can fully admit that I’ve endured a ‘bad relationship‘ in my past and although it sucked at the time, it was no doubt the biggest learning experience.
And from Andrew, I’ve learned rainbow and unicorn relationships are real because I’m living that now as we speak. Everything between Andrew and I is such a breeze- we truly have a happy and loving relationship, and it’s just plain and simple, easy. A relationship that’s easy?!
Now, of course, we’ve gotten into tiffs here and there, yes he annoys me/I annoy him, we don’t always see eye to eye but in the end the good out weighs the bad by A TON! I’m talking like 90% good-10% bad.
So how do we keep our relationship strong?
We talk (and text). And not just about whats bothering us but in general. We have good conversations; serious and nonsensical. I swear half of the time we’re just laughing
at with each other 😉 There’s an open line of communication and that in itself is so critical.
2. Common Interests
This could be a fluke because Andrew LOVES sports and I love all things girly. BUT we do love food, traveling, day trips/adventures, lounging, the city, coffee… LOL
3. Do Things Together
More often then not, Andrew and I do almost everything together. And the thing is, we actually want to go out and do things with each other. Even if its going to run a simple errand, we’ll keep each other company. The one thing I don’t do with him which he always tries to get me to do (one day I will) is go to the gym.
4. Get To Know Family/Friends
This speaks for itself, but on multiple occasions we’ve hung out with his family and my family. He’s pretty much met all my friends at least once and vis versa with me and his friends. We’ve done the double date game and I’d say we’re pretty acquainted with each others family/friends at this point.
5. Be Thoughtful
We must always remember, Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus . We may not always agree on something but we can agree to disagree.
I’m sure I could easily whip up about 10 other things on top of these 5 but these are definitely main ones that stand out to me.
If you’re in a relationship or have experience from a past a relationship what were some key things that made it work?!
