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.
When I tell people (who do not read BLAWGS) that I write a marriage/relationship column, I tend to count the seconds until that one eyebrow arches a little higher than the other one. It’s about three seconds, if you were wondering.
I don’t claim to be an expert (NO, NO, NO) and I tell them as such. I share issues that we’re working through and link to other posts and share my thoughts on them and ask people what they think on the topic du jour.
My husband and I are celebrating twelve years of marriage this coming Sunday, which I think deserves a huge WHAT THE HECK? And also, YEAH YOU DID.
Marriage if the smooshing of two people into one. Different ideas and different love languages and different sleep habits and different everything. It takes hard work, and effort, but the rewards are so, so great. And it doesn’t have to be all work, either. It shouldn’t be. This is why I am a huge proponent of date nights, whether they involve a night out or scheduled time together after the kids are in bed.
What works for you, to keep the love alive?
