Want That Perfect Forever Kinda Love?

Everyone deserves their happily ever after…

We’ve been married almost 27 years. And we are living each day our happily ever after.

anniv Pic

So what do you have to do to get there? I’ll give you my Top 5 Tips!

 

 

1. Perfectly Imperfect

Stop waiting on Prince Charming…he’s not coming…

Prince Charming

However the perfectly imperfect person is right there or out there waiting for you. Sure, you should set your standards high, you deserve it. But never set them so high that no one can ever measure up…no one is perfect…stop trying to hold them to it.

Those perfect couples you know and see, they didn’t get to where they are by being perfect. They got there by being in love and never giving up, by being perfectly imperfect!

2. Rolling With The Waves

waves

Like every aspect of life, not just relationships, there are going to be waves to ride. There will be great times, good times, bad times, horrible times, and that gray area where you just have no idea what kind of time it is.

Marriage/Relationships aren’t 50/50…the arent even 100/100 all the time. Sometimes the split is 150/-50. That’s what its all about. Its reaching down deep when you think you got nothing left and pulling out that Hail Mary. But I assure you…riding the waves IS what its all about. It grows you, shows you, and makes you!

3. Your Relationship Is Between 3 

trology

Your relationship is made up of the 2 of you and God. Not your best friend (Although there’s nothing wrong with having a best friend to lean on as long as they know when to sympathize AND kick you in the butt when necessary), definitely not social media, and not other family members…anytime it leaks out of your circle of 3 its messy messy messy and almost impossible to re-contain. 

You mad? That’s cool. Go sit your butt in the other room and calm down then come back. 

4. Communication Is Key

communication

Yeah you might think whats bothering you is petty. You might think what the other person is telling you is bothering them is petty. But if its bothering you, put it out there. Dealing with things is much better when they are petty or small. Little things turn into big things if left to smolder! Big things….and there will be big things….they are obvious and usually blow up…but then they settle…like a rainbow after a huge storm. Without that storm and rain and darkness, you don’t get to see a rainbow. Always appreciate the storms and rainbows in your life. 

5. Stop Comparing

comparison

Stop comparing your relationship to other relationships. This goes both ways….don’s assume your relationship should be as wonderful as what you perceive someone else’s to be and don’t assume its perilously doomed like others either. You aren’t your parents, your best friends, the couple you see on Facebook you think you wanna be like, you aren’t Snow White and Prince Charming, YOU ARE YOU! 

Love is

Play Nook/Book Nook For Toddlers

What to do with the old playpen when you’re toddler doesn’t need it?

I don’t know about you guys but I LOVE repurposing things instead of discarding them! I had an old playpen upstairs and decided to make it into something the littles could still use and love! 

First dust off and set up the old playpen!

Old Playpen

Next cut away one side of the mesh…

Cut One Side of Mesh Away

Super easy for them to climb in and out of on their own!

Comfy it up! 

I used a matching set of playpen/crib sheets so they could have a top on it like a tent as well!! Add a few comfy pillows and they will be in and out reading books, playing with their favorite toys, and even watching a show from in there! I even find them napping in there now and then!

Comfy It Up

Next just add some Littles!!!!!!

He Named Me Malala

Global Broadcast of He Named Me Malala
Monday, February 29th
8 pm est/7 pm cst On the Nat Geo Channel

An inspiring story of Malala, singled out by the Taliban and now unable to return to her homeland yet she works so hard for the girls there trying to secure for them an education. Be sure to tune in and watch!

Malala

HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
 
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.
 

 

The then 15-year-old teenager, who had been targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls’ education in her region of Swat Valley in Pakistan, was shot in the head, sparking international media outrage.  An educational activist in Pakistan, Yousafzai has since emerged as a leading campaigner for the rights of children worldwide and in December 2014, became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
