with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
One of my favorite bloggers (and people; I spent time with her at BlogHer last year) is the ever-lovely Kyran Pittman. She blogs at Notes To Self and is one of the editors over at Good Housekeeping.
This past week, one of Kyran’s posts made it onto MSN.com and it was a good read: “Keeping Your Marriage Thick In Thin Times“.
I thoroughly enjoyed the article and it caused me to think about the strain that finances can place on a marriage. We are feeling the financial pinch in our house as well. My husband’s industry (lumber) is in the pooper and I am taking on more accounting work to cover the divide. We’re keeping a closer eye on what we spend and talking more about the smaller purchases as well.
Is the economy affecting your marriage for better or for worse? How are you working through it all?
